Avoid the crowds vying for a good spot to catch the Macy’s 4th of July fireworks and take to the waters instead. The Circle Line is hosting its annual July 4th Fireworks Cruise for family’s looking to be right under the action with no comforts lost—an outdoor deck as well as indoor seating with heat/air-conditioning, large windows, music, food and restrooms will take the stress out of catching the light show with little ones in tow. The cruise sets sail at 6pm from Pier 83 on the Hudson River and makes its way south. Shoot photos of the Statue of Liberty from 100 feet away before heading towards the Brooklyn Bridge in time to catch the fireworks go off along the East River. All ages.
