Top 10 Best 4th of July Events in Miami (2018)July 1, 2018
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.
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.
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.
Ditch your backyard cookout for Carillon’s deluxe poolside barbecue. The family-friendly event features a lavish spread with dishes like chili grilled octopus and grilled corn, plus a themed red, white and blue dessert station and tunes by Miami’s own DJ YSL.
We all know the SLS throws one of Miami’s best pool parties, and this Fourth of July weekend promises more of the same. Head over to Hyde for four days of poolside shenanigans, barbecue food, DJs and, on Monday, a much-needed Vita Squad pop-up, providing hangover-curing IVs and fresh juices.
Head over to 1 Hotel’s private beach area for an afternoon of food, drinks and good times. The two-day cookout will be an a-la-carte offering of southern favorites (think watermelon salad barbecue pulled chicken) and classic New England fare, including a buttery lobster roll. Stick around for games, face painting and tunes by DJ Smeejay. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Catch a magnificent display of fireworks over Turnberry Isle’s pristine golf course during the hotel’s Independence Day shindig. Feast on classic American barbecue and get down to live music all night long. The party starts at 6pm and is open to hotel guests and locals, though tickets (which include valet parking, food and drink) are more expensive for non-guests.
The Biltmore’s fireworks show promises to be a spectacular affair. There will be an open bar from 5–9:45pm as well as a barbecue dinner. If you can afford it, this Gables landmark will be a perfect place to spend Independence Day.
