The Fourth of July is the perfect time to have a fun cookout, spend time with family and friends, and to watch a big, red white and blue fireworks display. Here are the best places around the United States to view a spectacular firework show for our Nation’s 243rd Birthday, and the perfect charms from the Princess Collection to commemorate your holiday.
New York City
You could have guessed this one. New York City’s 42nd Annual Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Display is the biggest and most impressive display you will see this year. Taking place on the Brooklyn Bridge and from several other barges on the East River, people will be able to see the show from all over the area, but the show will be televised, of course.
Nashville is a popular city to have a southern Fourth of July celebration. With top names in country music performing at this event, it will be one for the books for sure. The firework show will be located along the Cumberland River in the heart of Nashville with lots of fun activities that the whole family can enjoy.
Next, our nation’s Capital seems like an appropriate place to celebrate Independence Day! This fireworks show will light up the National Mall. There will be many performances including the National Symphony Orchestra. The president will also speak to the crowds from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
Mardi Gras is not the only huge celebration in New Orleans, Louisiana. This fireworks show is a little different in that there isn’t just one, but two! They will be on two barges on the Mississippi River and will shoot off fireworks together and compete against each other. Local radio stations will be syncing patriotic music to the fireworks show for an encapsulating experience. You can even climb aboard a riverboat on the Mississippi River to see an even more spectacular view of the show.
What is a more breathtaking view than fireworks above the Golden Gate Bridge? This picturesque view will attract tens of thousands of people in the area for this Fourth of July celebration. The fireworks will explode in the sky in two different locations so that people can see them from all over the city. Your day activity can be hiking to your favorite viewing location to see the fireworks at night.
