Independence Day is one of the most fun holidays in the USA. BBQ’s, fireworks and Red White & Blue defines the day. One of the worst parts about the holiday is finding an easy and accessible view for fireworks. Not to worry, we’ve got you covered.
1. 360 BRIDGE
What could be better than gorgeous panoramic view of Austin at night? How about a view of the city with fireworks! Austin 360 Bridge is the most quintessential view of Austin that you can imagine. This will certainly be the best view for fireworks this year, but get there early - this is also one of the most desirable spots in the city.

2. VIEWS FROM THE WATER
It’s not to late to rent a paddle board or a kayak on Lady Bird lake. There is no view like the one you can get while floating on the water. We suggest starting further up north to avoid some of the crowds. Book your rentals now as they are likely to sell out. Check out TexasRowingCenter.com for availability.
3. ZILKER PARK
Zilker Park is one of Austin’s favorite locations in the city. It is spacious (350 acres), accessible and family friendly. Pack up your friends, blanket and cooler and enjoy the views. As usual, we anticipate quite a crowd so prepare to park a bit down the road.
