UPDATED JULY 6, 2021.
Anybody who’s been in Las Vegas on the Fourth of July knows it’s where you’ll find the best parties and the biggest fireworks shows anywhere! And this year’s celebration of our Country’s Declaration of Independence in Las Vegas will be one of the most epic ever!
We celebrate this holiday in America because it represents an official severing of ties between the original 13 colonies and the rule of Great Britain. But it also represents the core of our beliefs, the very makeup of our identity as citizens of the U.S.A.
The Fourth of July falls on a Monday this year, so get ready for a killer LONG WEEKEND in Vegas, where the town will be bustling with activities and events. Parades, concerts, shows, pool parties, picnics, tours, and – of course – FIREWORKS will all be waiting for just one thing. You!
If it’s a pool party you seek, you couldn’t be in a better place. Las Vegas Day Clubs are, unquestionably, one of the coolest places to chill on hot summer days! Endless sun, ice-cold drinks, and the hottest DJs around combine to make your pool party experience in Las Vegas totally awesome. You’re going to want to consider beaching yourself at Marquee at The Cosmopolitan, Daylight at Mandalay Bay, Drai’s at The Cromwell, or Encore Beach Club, between a few others.
Maybe you’re into a thrill or two while you’re making the most of your Fourth of July holiday. In that case, the Fly Linq Zipline is your ticket. After you prove how daring you are, you can relax with a cold drink on the Happy Half Hour at the High Roller Observation Wheel. It will be right smack in front of you when you land. There you and your mates can hop into a pod for a private open bar and a highly-Instagrammable, picturesque ride!
There’s no question that you will have worked up an appetite after all that fun, and there’s nothing better than BBQ on a hot summer weekend in Las Vegas. Or is there? How about BBQ delivered! Whether you’re at a hotel, condo, timeshare, or home, Big Billy’s BBQ, located in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, will bring you the meat (and all the fixings, sides, and sauces). The talented Pitmasters at Big Billy’s have taken slow-cooked southern BBQ to a whole new level. Use the code VEGAS4LOCALS when ordering online to receive a savory 25% discount.
Does a tour along the Las Vegas Strip on an open-top English-style bus get your sightseeing self excited thinking about all of the great photos you’ll post to your social media? If it does, Big Bus Tours is your ticket to Instagram stardom! Hop on and off as much as you like, or stay on for the ride; it’s up to you. And yes, they have free Wi-Fi on board each bus!
