Plan an Independence Day to remember with help from our list of the best 4th of July events in Miami, packed with places to watch fireworks, things to do in Miami with kids and outdoor fun.
Best 4th of July events in Miami
Looking to celebrate the holiday early? Hop aboard South Beach Lady for a hip-hop party. With bottle service options for a cool $1,000 and DJs spinning until 4am, it doesn’t get much more Miami than this. Dress code: all-white everything. The boat leaves from the Bayside Marketplace marina.
Nikki Beach has one of the best views of the fireworks in all of Miami Beach. For this Independence Day, the beach club is offering live music by DJ Crespo, a roaring fireworks display and a selection of its juiciest burgers, including their beloved doughnut burger.
You could do worse than to celebrate your Fourth of July at Sonesta Coconut Grove. The hotel already has a great view of Biscayne Bay and the night's fireworks display. Tack on a buffet, a DJ and some alcohol and you've got yourself a good ol' American party. Just get to the buffet before the chipotle baby back ribs run out.
Coconut Grove's annual Independence Day tradition continues with a free nighttime fireworks display and evening picnic for families. A bike valet will be available for all those who cycle to the outdoor event. Guests are welcome to bring food, drinks (no glass, please!) and chairs.
