You might think that Vegas has enough lights in the sky, but the city celebrates the 4th of July every year with spectacular fireworks displays and celebrations, lighting every corner of the Las Vegas Valley. It's also prime pool season in July so the 4th is a great time to hit up one of the city's many pool clubs where the hottest DJs are sure to be spinning.
July 4th is all about the fireworks and if you're visiting Las Vegas for the holiday you'll want to know where to see the displays and where to find other all-American entertainment.
Fireworks locations can vary from year to year but typically you'll find them at several locations around town.
The Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower
The hotel will be launching fireworks from their property on July 3 at 9 p.m. The fireworks display by Grucci will launch from various locations including the top of the tower.
