4th of July Tips
July 4th is all about the fireworks and if you’re visiting Las Vegas for the holiday you’ll want to know where to see the displays and where to find other all-American entertainment.
Fireworks locations can vary from year to year but typically you’ll find them at several locations around town. The Stations Casinos properties, which are local casinos across the valley, usually have fireworks displays at several of their resorts like Sunset Station and Green Valley Ranch in Henderson and Texas Station and Red Rock Hotel Casino in the north.
Fireworks from hotels on the Strip vary, but in the past they’ve been shot off from the Stratosphere and Caesars Palace.
If you head downtown, you can see an electronic fireworks display on the Viva Vision canopy above Fremont Street.
The Las Vegas Philharmonic usually performs a 4th of July concert, which was held last year at downtown’s Smith Center.
For a more small-town 4th of July experience, try Boulder City’s Damboree celebration. There’s a pancake breakfast, games, a parade, and of course, a large fireworks display.
The City of Henderson also holds an annual 4th of July celebration with live music, games, activities and a fireworks show.
For the best view of any fireworks in Las Vegas, visit one of the many bars around town that offer views of the valley. Try Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay, Ghostbar at the Palms or Voodoo Rooftop Nightclub at the Rio. For restaurants with a view, there’s Mix at THEhotel at Mandalay Bay, Alize at the Palms or the Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris.
Another great attraction that will offer plenty of views of the fireworks is the High Roller observation wheel at The Linq.
