A fireworks display dazzles onlookers during Navy Pier’s annual Fourth of July celebration.

The city of Chicago ditched its official fireworks show a few years back, but Navy Pier picks up the slack with its explosive Independence Day celebration. Revelers can head down to the pier or Millennium Park for an up-close view, but if you're not a fan of crowds you'll want to hit the lakefront or find a friend with a rooftop by the shore.

The fireworks! Watch the lovely show from Navy Pier, your friend of a friend's friend's stellar condo balcony or line up near the lakefront with the rest of the city. This light show never gets old.
