Top Destinations for Fourth of July
If you’re still searching for the perfect destination to visit this 4th of July, how about considering the following recommendations? From catching fireworks at the Fisherman’s Wharf to having a blast in Sin City, from the musical festivals of Millennium Park to Disney escapes, Vine Vera reviews some of the top destinations and Independence Day themed attractions to visit this year.
Las Vegas always offers the perfect escape to its visitors, irrespective of the occasion or the time of the year. It’s glitzy casinos and party lifestyle are an obvious attraction, but Vegas also knows how to celebrate Independence Day. A number of those fantasy-like resorts are popular for their patriotic pool parties and firework displays, and there is no shortage of dancing, fancy cocktails, live music and world famous DJs either.
Breathtaking beaches, scintillating parties and larger-than-life attractions may define Los Angeles the best, but the city always offers so much more. There’s the pink sunsets to marvel at and there is always music to dance the night away. But, come Independence Day, Los Angeles also offers you another exciting option – the Fourth of July America Fest held at the Rose Bowl. From all sorts of food vendors and live music to family-friendly attractions and motorcycle stunt shows, there’s no shortage of things to do.
New York City
The Lady in Green invites you to the groovy glamor of New York while Central Park takes you away from those concrete jungles into an oasis of green. But the Fourth of July firework displays at Macy’s is just what legends are made up of. Vine Vera recommends you to grab a spot on the banks of the East River for the best views of the firework displays that are set off from the Brooklyn Bridge.
The land of fog gives you to the perfect locales to let go of your inhibitions. The various microclimates make San Francisco appear magical while farmer markets, fine dining restaurants, unique cafes and organic farms ensure that there is no shortage of cuisines to try out. Feast your tummies, delight your eyes and rejuvenate your soul in its fantastical attractions, but don’t miss out on the Fillmore Jazz Festival or the Fisherman’s Wharf fireworks cruise that define Fourth of July celebrations in the city.
The Windy City is relatively low key when compared to some of the more glamorous destinations on this list, but this is exactly what makes it so beautiful. You always have a lot of eating while in Chicago, and there are breathtaking architectural wonders such as Frank Gehry’s Pritzer Pavilion and the majestic Willis Tower to explore as well. And come Fourth of July, the Navy Pier fireworks and the classical-musical festival of Millennium Park are bound to feature high on your list of things to do.
Who better than Disney to show you how to party! The magical lands of Orlando are perfect for year-long explorations, but if you’ve been putting off that trip to Disneyland for some time, now would be the perfect time to take your family to the best theme park in the world. Loosen yourself, bring out the child in you and enjoy beautiful firework displays. Don’t forget to visit the Dolphin and Swan hotels, as they’re scheduled to host regional craft brews this Fourth of July to raise funds for military families. Whoever thought drinking away to glory would actually do some good!!!
