Watch the fireworks
It’s not the 4th of July without a dazzling fireworks show and Las Vegas definitely delivers on these patriotic performances. The city will have two fireworks shows at 9 p.m. on July 4th. One takes place on Las Vegas Boulevard in the middle of The Strip at Caesars Palace while the other will take place downtown at The Plaza Hotel and Casino.
There are also opportunities to see fireworks at a handful of off-strip resorts such as Red Rock Resort Casino & Spa in Summerlin, as well as at the Green Valley Ranch Resort & Spa and The M Resort, both of which are in Henderson. These spots are all about 20 to 25 minutes away by car from the heart of Las Vegas.
If you want to go a little further east, Lake Las Vegas is having its own fireworks show at 9 p.m. over the 320-acre reservoir.
Indulge around town
Don’t limit yourself to the dining and entertainment options in the hotel you’re staying at as plenty of places around town are getting into the patriotic mood.
