4. Las Vegas 4th July and New Year's Eve

You can only imagine what a firework display looks like in the gleaming City of Lights, where bigger and bolder is always better. 4th of July  and New Years' Eve firework displays are held at a number of Las Vegas' most esteemed hotels and are just as bright and as brilliant as the city itself.

Popular firework displays are hosted by Caesers Palace and Stratosphere. However, considering you can see these blazing fluorescent fireworks from far and wide you needn't head to the exact hotel they are being shown to see how they illuminate the Vegas sky. Enjoy the firework displays of multiple Vegas hotels with spectacular panoramic roof top views at luxury Las Vegas nightclubs like Foundation Rooms at Mandalay Bay, Ghost Bar at the Palms or Voodo at the Rio. The combination of glamorous rooftop clubs, the buzzing nightclub atmosphere and the New Year's Eve or 4th of July good vibes sounds like the perfect way to catch the City of Lights firework displays!
