Head to Cheviot Hills Park on this Fourth of July to for a low-key, crowd-free celebration courtesy of the Hillcrest Country Club. You may have to be a member to golf there but the club's annual fireworks display lights up the Rancho Park sky for all to see. The best seats in the house are free - across the street at Cheviot Hills Park on Motor Ave, just south of Pico.
The fireworks begin at 9:00 pm but the fun starts earlier. You can bring picnics, blankets, sports equipment and your family and friends and enjoy the park before dark.
