Caesars Palace always throws an impressive fireworks display to celebrate the 4th of July. The only fireworks show on the Strip will shoot off from the top of the Julius Tower at 8:30 p.m. The best viewing spots are by the fountains outside the hotel or directly across the street at The LINQ promenade.

Beer Park

Paris Las Vegas is home to Beer Park, a rooftop bar & grill with a perfect view of the Bellagio Fountains and Caesars Palace. A Fourth of July Party has a prime location with summer favorites like hot dogs, corn on the cob, popcorn and cotton candy. Views of fireworks aren’t guaranteed, but there’s a good chance you’ll see the Caesars Palace show from here.

The M Resort

The M Resort hosts its own fireworks show, which can be seen by those in Southwest Henderson and parts of Southern Hills. The best views are from the hotel itself, especially on the M Pool deck. The price of entry is $30 for adults and $10 for children up to 10 years old. The event includes music by acoustic duo Cover Lane.

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 going off 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 rooftop of the hotel and usually lasts about four minutes. The Plaza is hosting a viewing party from the pool deck at 7:30 p.m. 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.

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. Tickets ($35 for adults, $10 for kids 2-11) are on sale at the hotel’s gift shops. An illuminated necklace is included for every ticket holder.

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. Just like Green Valley Ranch, a light-up necklace is included. Everyone else will have the best views from Downtown Summerlin next door.

The City of Henderson brings back its annual fireworks celebration at Heritage Park on the corner of Burkholder Blvd. and Racetrack Rd. The event features a live concert by country band Little Texas 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 from the lawn in the Village dining and retail area.

Cabo Wabo Cantina

Cabo Wabo Cantina is throwing a July 4th patio party outside the Planet Hollywood resort. The restaurant will have Mexican food, tequila and plenty of cocktails, including a special red-white-and-blue All American with Tito’s vodka, rum, coconut, cranberry and pineapple juices with blue curaçao. The renovated patio is a great spot to watch the Caesars Palace fireworks taking place in the heart of the Strip.


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 totally worth the splurge. The seats have a prime location to views 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 to consider are Rivea at Delano, Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris and Top of the World at The Strat. Call ahead for availability and reservations.
