Fireworks high over the Las Vegas strip are what every visitor wants to see on the Fourth of July in Las Vegas and this year will be no different. Well, because this is a big weekend in Las Vegas you can expect to see fireworks all weekend instead of just on July 4th.
You'll want to head to the center strip in front of Caesars Palace to get the best view. They are celebrating their 50th anniversary so the weekend is full of festive events.
On July 3rd, the fireworks start after 9pm so find a good spot along Las Vegas blvd. I would suggest a seat on the patio at Cabo Wabo Cantina or high above on the Eiffel Tower. If you want to try something different head to the Tower at the Stratosphere and watch the fireworks from around the Valley from way up high. You could probably do the same thing from Voo Doo at Rio and Mix at Mandalay Bay.
The High Roller at The LINQ would be a fabulous spot to see the festivities but seats are going fast and at $30 it is a big price to see fireworks that you can probably see for less on the strip. The High Roller at THE LINQ should be tried but I don't think this is the best experience as your focus will not be on the fabulous views and instead be the fireworks.
If you want to try to find a seat and have a meal with a view of the fireworks I would try the Beer Park at Paris. Mon Ami Gabi at Paris will give you a decent view as well.
If you are really smart you grab a drink at Margarittaville and walk to their patio where you can see the action right across the street. Serendipity 3 has an outdoor section where your frozen hot chocolate will keep you cool as the sky is lit up.
A Few More Spots To Spot The Fireworks In Las Vegas
- T-Mobile Arena at The Park Las Vegas will be firing off a fireworks shows each day of the weekend after the Garth Brooks concert so have a beer at BeerHaus and watch the show.
- You can catch a live music show at Mandalay Bay Beach and then sit back and enjoy the show overhead. 311 takes the stage JUly 2 and 3rd with fireworks after the show.
- The Stratosphere Tower is having their own beach party as well and you can see the fireworks up above or you can go to the top of the tower and see the festivities around the valley from way up high.
- Get a terrace suite at Cosmopolitan Hotel and watch from there. That is the best seat in the house although it can cost a pretty penny.
Where Will I Watch Fireworks On Fourth Of July In Las Vegas?
You could buy a ticket for the VooDoo Zip Line at Rio Hotel and see the show from there but save your money and park in the self park garage on the east side of the property. Head to the roof and the unobstructed view of the entire strip is perfect for photographs and access to more than one firework display all for free. Because I am cheap there is a good chance I will be right up there with plenty of my other frugal friends.
