Everyone loves a spectacular fireworks display, and when it comes to the fourth of July, some cities just do it better than others. If you’re looking to get the biggest ‘bang’ for your private jet charter buck on Independence Day weekend, there are plenty of options worth considering. Fourth of July celebrations have gone well beyond fireworks and parades to include other family-friendly activities and attractions, including:

  • Food festivals
  • Free outdoor concerts
  • Games
  • Airshows

And no matter where you are in the country, there’s an Independence Day party with your name on it. Even if there’s not, a private jet charter can solve that in a hurry.

More specifically, the National Mall, which features some of the most recognized monuments in the U.S., is the place to be if you want to catch one of the greatest fireworks shows on earth. Fireworks are launched from the Lincoln Memorial, and can be seen from various locations in D.C. and Virginia. Some of the best spots include:

  • S. Capitol
  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial
  • Thomas Jefferson Memorial
  • White House Eclipse
  • West and East Potomac Parks
  • Anacostia Park

Kaboom Town!, Addison, Texas

private jet charter 4th July7 Kaboom Town!: The name pretty much says it all. While Addison is a relatively small suburb in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, every Independence Day weekend, the population swells to more than half a million. The reason? More than 30 minutes of dazzling lights displays that erupt across the Texas skyline, thanks to nearly two tons of black powder magic! Any show that earns itself a Top 10 ranking for best fireworks by the American Pyrotechnics Association is OK in our books. As the saying goes: “They do things bigger in Texas,” and Kaboom Town! proves it. Be sure to arrive early so you can catch the airshow at Addison Airport (FAA ID: KADS). As one of the top attractions of Kaboom Town, it features:

  • Red River Skydivers
  • Aerobatic stunt pilots
  • Flyover by the historic warbirds of the Cavanaugh Flight Museum

Fourth of July Celebration at Pier 39, San Francisco

The views from Pier 39, like all places to go in San Francisco are stunning in their own right. Add in a riveting pyrotechnics display like the one you’ll see on the fourth of July and you’re sure to have a good time. You can expect to see more than 10,000 individual fireworks launched over the Bay Area from two separate locations. Both will be synchronized to music for a truly wondrous effect. If you don’t want to stand in the crowds, try arranging a harbor cruise or booking a table at one of the exceptional waterfront restaurants (Hint: when you arrange a private jet charter with Stratos Jets, their Trip Support department can make the reservations for you).
