Travelbag Top 5 Best 4th of July Fireworks

Enjoy the festivities of the 4th of July! There’s no better time to visit USA and experience American culture underpinned by the strong sense of patriotism on this special day. This year’s celebration carries even more importance as it is the 200th anniversary of “The Star Spangled Banner”, the national anthem of the USA.

New York City

It’s an amazing destination to visit any time of the year but during 4th of July celebrations, New York City truly is a sight to be seen. Macy’s 4th of July fireworks in NYC is a spectacle that has been entertaining patriotic Americans since 1976 when it debuted to mark the nation’s bicentennial. This year the iconic display will see fireworks set off from Brooklyn Bridge and barges in the East River, taking the prize for the country’s largest pyrotechnic show.
