Well we have a bit of moon to contend with after midnight or so, but early viewing should be good if it's clear in your area. Look to the northeast after sunset and enjoy the show! For more viewing details, check this article, or this one.

And for some enticement here's two of my Perseid images from last year at N. Cascades National Park (click for larger, shot details are posted on my flickr stream with the images):

@Sean, good guess but actually that's from the Lake Diablo overlook. I was amazed by how clear it was last year. Another invaluable site for planning star viewing and photography opps is the ClearSky page where you can get a sort of forecast for how good star viewing will be from locations all over N. America. They even have light pollution info. Very handy!
