A few times every summer I will assist someone in a beach wheelchair in getting closer to the ocean. The sand wheelchairs are hard to push and the only option is to push them - they cannot be self-propelled. They do roll better over wet sand, but you are not supposed to get them wet... So, based on my experience, I think a stroll down the Boardwalk, right next to the beach, is a good substitute.
I stayed in this area for many years, and I often parked cars on 45th, 46th, and 47th Streets on the ocean side for multiple days at a time and never had an issue (There is not parking on Coastal Highway). I generally did not have too much of an issue finding a spot in this area. Just be sure to check the signs - some of these streets may have a few hours a week (usually in the morning) when you can't park there due to street cleaning or trash pickup. And, Yes, Street parking in this area of town is FREE!
I stayed at 130th Street for several years. This is a great area of town. Although the beaches throughout all of OC are all excellent. One nice thing about this area is because Northside Park is on the Bayside, there is little residential or rental housing on the west side of Coastal Highway, so the beach is a bit less crowded. You will be fine on this stretch of beach!

The fireworks are shot off at North Division St. which is at the lower end of the boardwalk near the inlet. You should be able to see them anywhere on the beach for a good distance. Of course, the closer you are, the better view. They are held Monday and Tuesday nights at 10:00 p.m. and last about 8 minutes.

One of the beat places to launch and park your trailer while you ride is the free county boat ramp in the commercial harbor in West OC. You can also park your jet ski on it's trailer there for up to 24 hours. If you park on the street in OC you jet ski/trailer will be tagged by the police and from that point you have 8 hours to move it or be towed.
