Best Residences Around The Nation To Watch July Fourth Fireworks

The sun may slip under the horizon, but that is the time when the sky erupts in light. This is not such a bizarre, unnatural notion on July Fourth, when dusk heralds the crackle and sparkle of celebratory fireworks. The grand finale of any festivity around the nation, the pyrotechnics shows are best marveled at with the advantage of some elevation. And what beats an upscale residence in the clouds where the fireworks erupt in red, white and blue.

To mark America’s birthday this year, Haute Residence has curated a list of some of the most lavish properties to watch the fireworks from. Replete with rooftop decks and expansive balconies, these are the homes to thrust you in the center of the celebrations around the country.
