Fourth of July, also well known as America’s birthday, is a holiday that is celebrated by almost every American. After all the day time celebrations such as picnic, baseball games, and family reunions, it all boils down to the evening fireworks show.
Everyone wants to see fireworks presented that will leave them speechless and end their day with a smile on their face.
New York City
One of the most American cities in the United States, New York City delivers one of the best fireworks shows. There are many spots where fireworks are set off in New York City; however the annual Macy’s fireworks show is one of the best.
The fireworks are presented over the Hudson River and attract over two million people. The show is so large and spectacular that it can be seen from various areas in and around New York and New Jersey. The show lasts for approximately 30 minutes and is both historical and spectacular.
With the wonderful coastal area that is home to San Diego, the fireworks that are presented leave many tourists and even residents speechless.
However, both downtown San Diego and the coastal area set off fireworks that you will never forget. San Diego is remembered for their spectacular shows or spectacular failure which happened in 2012, when all their fireworks that were gathered for a nearly 20 minute show were set off all within 15 seconds.
Las Vegas is one of the most famous destinations for Fourth of July travelers. The strip gives off a spectacular show if you are in the right spot. Almost every major hotel on the strip sets off some fireworks from their rooftop. You can either view it by walking the strip, or pay for a hotel room with a spectacular view of the strip, and witness it all from your room.
What better place to celebrate the holiday than where it all started? Washington D.C. puts on one of the most spectacular fireworks show. All around the white house and George Washington monument, thousands of pounds of fireworks are seen across the city. The fireworks are set off on the National Mall but can be viewed from many attractions around the capitol.
The traditional holiday that is celebrated by millions of Americans for over 230 years gets more and more spectacular every year. Where will you be watching the Fourth of July fireworks this year?
