Fireworks on July Fourth

We'll be in South Padre for July 4. We are a family of four - younger kids - ages 5 and 6. What do you recommend for fireworks? Should we do a fireworks cruise? Recommended companies? Find a spot on the beach? Open to any/all suggestions. TIA!

The Embassy condominiums has a great view. Check VRBO for availability. It is family friendly and Beachfront.

Depends on where you are staying.....realize fireworks don't start til 9:15 or so and traffic congestion to get back to condo can be horrific. With little ones I would plan on watching somewhere near where I stay, so you can walk home or watch from residence
