Fourth of July All-White Yacht Party

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.

Fourth of July at Bayfront Park

The U.S. is turning 241—and that’s worth celebrating at downtown Miami’s annual bash. The event promises musical performances, a beer garden and a large fireworks display just after sunset.

Team Nikki Beach Fourth of July Celebration

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.

Star-Spangled Sonesta Fourth of July

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.
