Caesars Palace always throws an impressive fireworks display to celebrate the 4th of July. The only fireworks extravaganza on the Strip will shoot off from the top of the Julius Tower at 9:00 p.m. The best viewing spots are by the fountains outside the hotel or directly across the street at The LINQ promenade. Caesars Palace’s Garden of the Gods Oasis will also have a decadent 4th of July night swim at its Venus pool.

Families in the Northwest Valley will head to Buckskin Basin Park (near Gowan and Buffalo) for food trucks and entertainment at 7 pm with a fireworks spectacular taking place after dark. If it gets crowded, enjoy additional viewing at nearby Wayne Bunker Park.

The M Resort

The M Resort hosts its 15-minute fireworks show, which starts at 9 p.m. and is choreographed to music. The fireworks can be seen from Southwest Henderson and parts of Southern Hills, but the best view is from the hotel’s M Pool deck. ¬†Entry is $30 for adults and $10 for children up to 10 years old. The event includes live entertainment.

The Strat

The Strat, formerly known as the Stratosphere, has an observation deck (officially called a SkyPod) on the 108th floor of the tower, which wraps around the perimeter of the structure. It’s a rare opportunity to enjoy 360-degree views of any fireworks shows around the Las Vegas Valley.

Plaza Hotel and Casino

Celebrate Independence Day near the Fremont Street Experience at the Plaza Hotel and Casino. The only Downtown fireworks show erupts at 9 p.m. from the hotel rooftop and usually lasts about four minutes. The Plaza is hosting a viewing party from the pool deck for hotel guests with a DJ, cocktails, and more. The Fremont Street Experience will also display virtual fireworks on the digital screen of its Viva Vision overhead canopy. Main Street will be closed from Carson Avenue to Ogden Avenue to allow pedestrians.

Green Valley Ranch

Green Valley Ranch will be a part of a July 4th fireworks celebration that’s become an annual tradition for Station Casinos. The fireworks will explode in the Henderson sky at 9 p.m. with a show lasting about nine minutes. The best viewing area is in The Backyard pool deck. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and tickets ($35 for adults, $10 for kids 2-11) are on sale at the hotel’s gift shops. A complimentary light-up necklace is included for every ticket holder (while supplies last), and frozen treats and beverages will be available for purchase.

Red Rock Casino

If you’re off the Strip for the night and find yourself in Summerlin, don’t miss out on a chance to see the Red Rock Resort’s annual fireworks display. The show starts at 9 p.m. Watch from the Sandbar pool with tickets ($35 for adults, $10 for kids 2-11) available at hotel gift shops. Much like the Green Valley Ranch, a light-up necklace is included (while supplies last).

One may also enjoy the show from Downtown Summerlin next door.

Durango Casino & Resort

The new Durango resort in Southwest Las Vegas will debut its first-ever Independence Day fireworks viewing show with prime viewing at the Bel-Aire Backyard lawn. There will be a live DJ and light-up necklaces for ticket holders while supplies last. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 9 p.m. The cost is $35 for guests 12 and up.

The City of Henderson brings back its annual family-friendly fireworks celebration at Heritage Park on the corner of Burkholder Blvd. and Racetrack Rd. The event features entertainment by Six One Five Collective at 7:30 p.m., followed by fireworks at 9 p.m. Come early with a lawn chair or blanket. Gates open at 6 p.m.

Lake Las Vegas

Fireworks will erupt over the water at Lake Las Vegas in Henderson at 9 p.m. The show is free and open to the public. Catch it from one of the hotels (the Westin and Hilton) or the lawn in the Village dining and retail area.


The namesake restaurant of Giada de Laurentiis charges an upgrade for a reservation by the windows, which open up wide to let in the fresh air when the weather’s appropriate. This time, it’s worth the splurge. The seats have a prime location to view the fireworks show above Caesars Palace across the street.

Other excellent viewing sites in Las Vegas include Skyfall Lounge at the top of the Delano, Foundation Room at the top of Mandalay Bay, and the Legacy Club at Circa. Some restaurants with great views to consider are Rivea at Delano, Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris, and Top of the World at The STRAT. Please call ahead for availability and reservations.
