Our favorite American holiday is less than a week away and it’s time to plan for the ultimate Fourth of July celebration. With the holiday falling in the middle of the week this year, many Miamians will be in town rather than heading away for vacation. Therefore, we’ve decided to scope out the very best places to celebrate the 4th in style and get the best views of the impressive firework displays. In the Magic City, we’re lucky enough to have endless enviable options that rival those in other cities around the country. Here are some of our favorite picks for where to celebrate this year:

One of the perks of living in Miami is having access to the water all year round. There’s really no better way to view the fireworks than to be out on the water. Either take your own yacht out for a Fourth of July cruise or rent one for a day of luxury at sea. We recommend booking through boatsetter.com to choose from their selection of yachts, perfect for planning a celebratory day and evening for intimate groups. Sip on rosé, watch the sunset and toast to a gorgeous Fourth of July on Biscayne Bay.
