Upper Cape Living: Five Awesome Porches For Watching Fireworks
By: Lynette Helms, July 7, 2014
Even though it was a rainy and cloudy fourth of July, the fireworks were a sight to see over the weekend, albeit a day or two late. Whether you spent the holiday inside with friends and family, or braved the elements for some much-needed grill time, we all know that there's no better place to watch them from than from your porch.

Here's our list of five awesome porches from which to enjoy the fireworks!
110 Ryder Road, Falmouth.
So you're a little pressed for space on this porch but the view certainly makes up for it. A quick stroll down to the waterfront isn't too much trouble for a private, unobstructed view of the festivities. View Listing
18 Cross Tree Way, Mashpee.
There aren't any, ahem, official fireworks displays in Popponesset (New Seabury has them over by the golf course), but this deck is still a great option to watch the neighborhood show over the water! If you're lucky enough to own a boat, putter out to nearby Nantucket Sound (takes about a two minutes) and catch fireworks from Mashpee, Falmouth, Cotuit, Hyannis and, on clear nights, Martha's Vineyard.

426 Menauhant Road, Falmouth.
Clear, unobstructed harbor views. Can't really complain about much here. With multiple viewing angles (the porch is a semi-wraparound), the best view is super easy to come by from this Falmouth Heights home. View Listing
24 Landfall, Falmouth.
It's a known fact that Quissett has some of the prettiest harbors and best views on the Cape. It's a lesser known fact that there are actually condos in the area! You have a couple of choices from this Treetops unit: sit on the deck and watch the fireworks, or take a stroll to the private association beach on Vineyard Sound. Your choice, either way you're going to have a great time. View Listing
30 Ships Way, Bourne.
You see that? That's the Canal! With nothing in the way! With the Canal Centennial fast approaching, this promises to be a summer of epic fireworks displays up and down our favorite watery highway. You barely have to move to catch the displays over the Cape Cod Canal. Just bring a chair and enjoy.View Listing
