— Where to Watch Fireworks in Miami in 2024

First, as tried and true Miamians, who’ve seen many a fireworks show here, we’ve got some general pointers on where to watch the many 4th of July fireworks in Miami so that you're sure to get an amazing view of, likely not just one show, but many. It’s not uncommon to see fireworks all over the horizon, depending on where you are.

  1. A Boat! With water surrounding us, having a boat offers one of the best vantage points to enjoy Miami’s 4th of July fireworks. Out on the water, you'll be among numerous other boaters sharing in the festivities from some of the finest viewing spots available, especially anywhere in Biscayne Bay. Most of Miami’s 4th of July fireworks are launched from floating docks in the bay, so if you’re on a boat, you’ll get some the best views around. One of the many other perks of watching from your boat or yacht is that you can have a much more intimate affair and avoid the crowds. And, you can easily motor to other vantage points. If, on the contrary, you like to be where the social action is but prefer to do it on the water, many companies offer cruises or parties to enjoy with others.

  2. Your Condo’s Rooftop or Pool Deck! With so many stunning options of condo rooftops in Miami, your condo’s rooftop or pool deck is easily one of the best places to watch the 4th of July fireworks in Miami, especially if there are amenities like a summer kitchen and grill to complete the experience! Gather your friends and family and get ready for an unforgettable experience. And check with your condo or Miami apartment building – many already have 4th of July fireworks viewing parties planned. Just show up!

  3. At the Beach! After a long day in the sun celebrating the 4th of July in Miami, linger a little longer as day fades to night to catch some of Miami’s most spectacular fireworks shows. From North Beach to South Beach and Key Biscayne, you’ll be sure to witness some amazing fireworks wherever you find yourself on the sand.
