10 Best Places to Watch Fireworks

Grab your Freedom Juice. The Fourth of July is almost here!

Here are Halo’s 10 best places to watch fireworks:

Washington, D.C.

Of course, one of the most patriotic fireworks display is in our nation’s capital. If you’re heading there to celebrate the Fourth of July be prepared for a day full of events, which includes the Independence Day Parade, the Capitol Fourth Concert, and the annual Nationals game against the New York Mets. The National Mall Fourth of July Celebration begins promptly at 9:09 p.m. and lasts about 17 minutes. There are several viewing areas, as the fireworks are visible from D.C. and Virginia. Click here for a full list of where to watch.

New York, New York

The Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks show is the nation’s largest Independence Day celebration – it attracts more than 3 million spectators live and over 10 million TV viewers. If you’re touring the city it will be hard to miss these fireworks wherever you are, but if you’re looking for the most spectacular views hit up Brooklyn Bridge Park. That’s the golden spot for fireworks. However, if you’re looking for a great atmosphere more than a perfect view, Berry Park serves beer and barbeque on the rooftop, and Grand Ferry Park offers a quieter view with a little more personal space.

San Diego, California

San Diego’s Big Bay Boom fireworks show is the largest display of fireworks on the West Coast, with up to 500,000 spectators. As you take in the illuminating views, you’ll hear patriotic music selections that will give you all the feels – don’t forget to pack the tissues. And if that isn’t enough of a tear jerker, Big Bay Boom dedicates the show to the families of our military service heroes, and all the net proceeds brought in through sponsorships and the public are donated to the Armed Services YMCA. As a supporter of the Armed Forces, we highly recommend making a trip to see this firework show.

Raleigh, North Carolina

The South knows how to celebrate the Fourth of July! Raleigh’s Independence Day Celebration, The ‘Works is an all-day event that includes: live music, beer, wine, aerial performances, Cirque de Vol street performers, eating contests, food and art vendors, fireworks, and so much more. Be right back…we’re changing our travel plans now.

Seattle, Washington

Seattle’s Seafair Summer Fourth has it all – food, music, games, beer gardens (you heard that right), and a 21-minute fireworks display. The festival takes place in Gas Works Park and Lake Union Park. Both guarantee fantastic views of the fireworks. So, if you find yourself in Seattle for the Fourth of July, you’ll want to make time to see one of the nation’s best fireworks show. But don’t just take our word for it. See for yourself!

Orlando, Florida

Red, Hot & Boom is Orlando’s best fireworks show outside of the theme parks, and it’s the largest Independence Day celebration in Central Florida. It’s a music festival and firework extravaganza combined into one! This year’s lineup includes performances by Austin Mahone, Kaleo, Hey Violet, and AJR. Red, Hot and Boom takes place on July 3 in Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs.

Denver, Colorado

Independence Day is a weekend celebration in Denver. Celebrations kick off July 1 with the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, the city’s signature cultural event. Continue the festivities at Civic Center Park on July 3 for the Independence Eve Fireworks. There you’ll be amazed by the innovative light show and stunning fireworks finale. And finally, on the Fourth of July spend the day riding roller coasters and water slides at Elitch Gardens Theme and Water Park. Then watch a brilliant firework display light up the night sky starting at dusk.

Chicago, Illinois

Fireworks are a summer tradition in Chicago. You can spot them off Lake Michigan every Wednesday and Saturday throughout the summer months at Navy Pier. But when it comes to celebrating the Fourth of July, Chicago has no shortage of spectacular fireworks. Of course there’s Navy Pier, but the village of Itasca puts on one of the largest displays outside the city. There’s also Skokie’s 3D Fireworks Festival that will give you a whole new viewing experience.

Addison, Texas

It may be a small town, but Addison, Texas (30 minutes north of Dallas) puts on a big show. Kaboom Town! is North Texas’ best fireworks show. With food vendors, entertainment, an air show and a dazzling fireworks display, Kaboom Town! lives up to its name. Admission and parking are free, but capacity is limited so get there early.

Minneapolis, Minnesota

Red, White and Boom! That’s what happens every year on the Fourth of July in Minneapolis. This annual event attracts more than 75,000 people along the downtown Minneapolis riverfront. There’s live music, great food, fun activities, and of course the grand finale of fireworks.
