Sail and Enjoy the Decadence: 4th of July Celebrations in NYC

We are coming up on 4th of July, which is one of the most highly anticipated social events in NYC this summer. The city as a whole carries a heightened level of excitement this year due to the movement of the Macy’s fireworks display from the Hudson to the East River. With New York City set to enjoy the loud and colorful display of our national pride, there are several ways to enjoy the show. Our favorite vantage points tend to be cruises and yachts. Read on for a couple of ways to enjoy this year’s fireworks from the water.

4th of July Cruise

In cities all around the country, one of the most exclusive and well-known methods of taking in an annual fireworks celebration is to do so from a boat. For a guaranteed great time, those spending this Independence Day in New York City can enjoy their evening aboard the Paddle Wheel Queen for the 4th of July Independence Fireworks Cruise.

This event includes a sail along the New York City skyline and a view of the Statue of Liberty— some of the most classic American visual spectacles in existence. The party will be set with burgers and hot dogs, a three hour open bar, revered DJ’s from NYC playing a variety of music and an incomparable vantage point for the fireworks display.

Eastern Star Cruises

For those who are looking for something a bit more exclusive and upscale, one of the most alluring options to celebrate the 4th of July in NYC is by chartering a private yacht. Eastern Star Cruises will take you and your friends out on a luxurious ship for an evening of peaceful cruising around the vibrant and awe inspiring New York City.

Take a trip by the Statue of Liberty, or under the Brooklyn Bridge to enjoy some unforgettable landmarks as the evening gets started. With catering and fine dining options available, this night can be one of the most fulfilling parties you’ve ever thrown. Not to mention, once the fireworks come on, you and your friends will be all on your own, enjoying the amazing spectacle with the comfort of your own space and the shared experience of millions of New Yorkers gazing up at the same sky.

For those willing to spend a little extra to take in our nation’s birthday party this year, these events are sure to please.
