Tonight is the night! Happy 4th of July from all of us at Have A Night! We hope you've been enjoying the LONG weekend with friends, family, good food, and {of course} some drinks! Conde Nast Traveler recently highlighted some of the best spots in the United States to catch a badass fireworks display. If you live near one of these cities, you are very lucky to be close to the best 4th of July celebrations this country has to offer!

New York City

New York City is home to one of the largest fireworks shows in the country, regularly attracting crowds of upwards of 3 million people. This year's celebration will feature a 25 minute show on the East River accompanied by musical performances by Jennifer Lopez, Brad Paisley, Charlie Puth, Hailee Steinfeld, Lady Antebellum, and Sheryl Crow. All of the fun starts at about 9:20pm.

Washington, DC

What better place to celebrate America's freedom than in our nation's capital? DC puts on a spectacular fireworks show on the National Mall that can be seen from almost the entire city! The fireworks are expected to begin just after 9pm.


The birthplace of our country serves as a great backdrop for one helluva fireworks show. Philadelphia will feature a great display over the Philadelphia Museum of Art starting at 9:30pm.

San Francisco

Head down to Pier 39 or Fisherman's Wharf for a day full of fun including live music, family activities, and, of course, the fireworks show starting around 9:30pm.

Atlantic City

Atlantic City's fireworks start right at 9pm on the 4th in the Marina district (near the Borgata) with a very impressive show!


Chicago's fireworks are located at the Navy Pier and are set to music. The 4th of July fun starts with the pier's opening at 10am, as spectators are encouraged to arrive early before the pier reaches capacity! Fireworks start at 9:30pm!


The Boston fireworks are based on the Charles River and are one of the most exciting shows in the country. The 21-minute display gets underway at 10:30pm!
