Independence Day means friends, family, and fireworks — and a BBQ for good measure. We’ve noted our favorite east-coast celebrations in New York and Miami to ring in the country’s birthday this Fourth of July.

New York City:

Fireworks exploding over the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan skylineMacy’s Fourth of July Fireworks

A much anticipated show, Macy’s annual Fourth of July Spectacular lights more than 40,000 fireworks each year. For the best views, we recommend staking out a comfortable spot near Brooklyn Bridge (right in the backyard of our very own 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge!) People start gathering around 5:00pm to secure a spot for the 9:00pm show, so we recommend bringing snacks. Guests of 1 Hotel Central Park can ask the concierge about our Picnic in the Parkpackage, which includes a cheese spread and bottle of rosé.

There is no better way to celebrate 4th of July in Miami than watching one of the largest firework displays in South Florida at America’s Birthday Bash. The festivities begin at noon at Bayfront Park and culminate at 9pm with a fantastic firework celebration over Biscayne Bay.
