Every year, Caesars Palace throws an unforgettable fireworks display to celebrate the 4th of July. The fireworks will start at 9:15 p.m. and will last about 13-and-a-half minutes, so secure your spot by the fountains outside the hotel or directly across from The LINQ to get the best view.

Paris Las Vegas is home to Beer Park, a rooftop bar & grill with the perfect view of the Bellagio Fountains and Caesars Palace.
