Here are 10 of our favorite private jet charter destinations for July 4th.

Washington, D.C.

Washington D.C.’s Fourth of July on the Mall is a world-famous patriotic fireworks show highlighting the Fourth celebrations. Set in the expanses of the National Mall, the capital has no shortage of viewing sites for everyone. This year’s event begins at 9:09 PM and finishes with the grand finale about 20 minutes later. Popular places for watching the annual program are spots on the National Mall, restaurants on the waterfront, and even nearby hotel suites. Hotels with waterfront and rooftop views include The Hay-Adams, Mandarin Oriental, and waterfront rooms at JW Marriott.

Las Vegas, Nevada

During summertime, Las Vegas becomes a hub for pool activities. Besides the spectacular fireworks displays that light up the valley, there are plenty of activities to engage in both day and night. Every year, hotels along the Las Vegas Strip team up to offer a fireworks extravaganza that spans the city. Caesar’s Palace puts up the most notable show and usually starts at 9:15 PM. Unlike New Year’s Eve, The Strip remains open to vehicle traffic, leading to congested street viewing with both people and cars. On July 4th, there’s no shortage of hotel rooms, pool bars, balconies, and patios with breathtaking views of the city’s lights and the fireworks display.

San Diego, California

It’s known as the largest fireworks show in Southern California, the Big Bay Boom. The fireworks display in San Diego Bay is a breathtaking sight visible from the waterfront, downtown San Diego, Coronado, and Harbor islands. The festivities commence at 9 PM from barges in the water. For a more intimate experience, the City of Coronado hosts its own fireworks display over Glorietta Bay at the same time. To complete your weekend getaway, indulge in a stay at the iconic Hotel Del Coronado on the island.

New York, New York

New York City is gearing up for its famed fireworks display. A whopping 60,000 rockets will light up the sky, during the Macy’s Fourth of July Celebration. The Brooklyn Bridge stretches from Manhattan’s Chinatown to Brooklyn’s downtown and is the prime location for catching the show. Alternatively, you can opt for an overwater view by taking a river cruise along the East River. The extravaganza begins at around 9:20 PM, with the fireworks launching from barges on the river. For a truly unforgettable experience, consider chartering a private jet and exploring all the city offers.

The Hamptons, New York

The Westhampton Country Club will host the largest Fourth of July fireworks display in the Hamptons by the renowned Grucci family. The 39th show will begin at sundown on Tuesday and can be seen from all streets in Westhampton, including Potunk Lane. “Stars over Montauk” will also launch from Umbrella Beach at 8 PM on July 4th. July marks the start of the Hamptons high season, and numerous food festivals, benefits, community affairs, and other special events will occur in towns throughout the summer.

Portland, Oregon

Celebrate in the city of roses with a visit to the Waterfront Blues Festival. This year’s festivities kick off on Saturday, July 1st, in Portland’s Waterfront Park. Set along the banks of the Willamette River, this event is celebrating 32 years as one of the world’s premier Blues Festivals. The fireworks show starts at 10 PM from the Willamette River and is set to a live performance of the national anthem by Andy Stokes. Featured artists at this year’s festival are Buddy Guy, The Mavericks, JJ Grey & Mofro, Cory Wong, Los Lonely Boys, Shemekia Copeland with Special Guest Ruthie Foster, and Eric Gales.

Aspen, Colorado

Summertime in Aspen is just as splendid as the winter season. Although skiing may not be an option, plenty of outdoor activities exist. Hiking, mountain biking, and white-water rafting are all easily accessible. A must-see event in July is Aspen’s Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration. With a true American vibe, the downtown parade attracts about 20,000 residents and visitors, starting at 11 AM. However, this year’s closing show will feature drones and lights at Wegner Park instead of fireworks in the sky due to wildfire concerns.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Come and explore the breathtaking beauty of the American West in a charming mountain town. The Fourth of July festivities kick off with a traditional parade at 10:30 AM downtown. You won’t want to miss this year’s fireworks display, which will begin at 10 PM and occur in two locations: at the base of Snow King Mountain in Jackson and at the bottom of the Tetons in Teton Village. Keep the festivities going with a music celebration at 4 PM in Teton Village, a Shootout in the Town Square at 6 PM, and a special edition of the Jackson Hole Rodeo at 8 PM. Experience an unforgettable day of fun, culture, and celebration in Jackson Hole.

Houston, Texas

Looking for a Texas-sized Fourth of July celebration? Look no further than Houston’s Freedom Over Texas! This music and fireworks festival is the perfect way to honor our country and enjoy the summer Texas style. With 30 years of tradition behind it, Freedom Over Texas is a Houstonian favorite. Don’t miss the show over Buffalo Bayou; the perfect way to cap off a long July weekend.

Chicago, Illinois

Don’t miss the dazzling fireworks display at 9:30 PM at Chicago’s downtown waterfront. Catch a stunning view of the rockets’ red glare reflected over Lake Michigan from Navy Pier. Be sure to arrive early as this popular event reaches maximum capacity every year, leading to early gate closures.
