New York City
Regarded as one of the greatest events on July 4 across the United States, Macy’s stupendous Fourth of July fireworks are a treat for every eye. Huge fireworks set off from close to South Street Seaport’s Pier 17 explode all over the sky above the Brooklyn Bridge, while the smaller ones explode directly from the bridge. The beauty is for everyone to behold. And there is no iota of a doubt why this particular pyrotechnic has a mention in the largest fireworks celebration in the entire United States.
Although you can usually witness the grandeur from anywhere close to the Brooklyn Bridge, the areas of public viewing in 2020 are practically inaccessible owing to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus pandemic. If you happen to stay at a hotel or an apartment at a stone’s throw distance from the bridge, you could catch the live show. You can also the vent live on NBC at 8 p.m.
Beantown has a name all over the country and outside too for its amazing display of fireworks, which, coupled with live Boston Pops Orchestra, is a treat that you can’t miss out.

Addison is a Dallas suburb and has near about 19,000 residents. However, on July 3 every year, almost half a million people from parts of America assemble in the town to have a whale of a time.
