Many of our nation’s major metropolitan areas mark their Independence Day celebrations on the waterfront, making watching fireworks from a boat the best seat in the house.
Here are just a few popular on-the-water locations for viewing fireworks from a boat this 4th of July:
- Austin, Texas: Marked by beautiful symphony music and a spectacular fireworks display, Austin's Town Lake is the place to be for this annual celebration. Rent a kayak or head out aboard your own boat where the best seats in the house are on the water.
- Myrtle Beach, S.C.: With an entertainment megaplex featuring shops, restaurants, nightclubs, theatres, miniature golf course, Ripley's Aquarium and the 23-acre Lake Broadway, the Broadway at the Beach area is the place to be for Independence Day fireworks in the Southeast.
- New York, N.Y.: With more than 35,000 pyrotechnic shells in a half-hour display, Macy's dazzles viewers each year with a fireworks display of grand proportions in honor of the nation’s birthday. Launched from two East River locations, taking in the spectacular views from aboard a boat cannot be beat. Visitors can also celebrate in style on a cruise beneath the Statue of Liberty, featuring live music and dancing.
Whether celebrating in a big city or on your local lake or river, enjoy our nation's birth this 4th of July with your family and friends on the water! Happy Independence Day!!
