Join in on Fourth of July Celebrations All Over the City
There is so much happening around the city for Fourth of July. While the city is always bustling with exciting events, this time of year brings out the very best for unforgettable summer fun! This holiday, there are activities for every kind of traveler. Whether it’s touring national monuments (we see you, Statue of Liberty), celebrating by the water at Freedom Fest, or heading to Coney Island for the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest (a local favorite!). Whatever is in store for you this Fourth of July, definitely make time for the Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks display. The largest in the country, this dazzling firework show will be shot from seven barges in the East River between 24th and 42nd streets. Head to FDR Drive for free viewing sites, or if you want to splurge, purchase a prime spot at Riverpark’s Backyard Barbecue Bash for $250. The show is truly mesmerizing, and the perfect way to celebrate such a monumental day in our country’s history!
