The Top Ten Fourth of July Fireworks Destinations in MIAMI (1)

Jul 03, 2014 July 03, 2014

During each summer, a particular day sets the sky on fire with the reds, the whites, and the blues: Independence Day.

The Fourth of July is an extremely popular American holiday where we celebrate our independence with cookouts, music, dancing, games, and of course, fireworks.

If you are in the Miami area and want to catch the pyrotechnics, here is our list of the ten best locations to watch the fireworks.

1. Bayfront Park, located at 301 North Biscayne Boulevard, Miami. Bayfront's “America's Birthday Bash” happens between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m, with a kids zone for children to enjoy before the fireworks at 9 p.m. Show up at least an hour early for a good parking spot.

2. Peacock Park, located at 2820 McFarlane Road, Coconut Grove. Their “Get your 4th On” celebration includes Barnacle’s picnic from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and a hot dog eating contest at 5 p.m., followed by the fireworks at 9.p.m.

3. The City of Miami Beach official July 4th Celebration, located on the corner of Ocean Drive and Eighth Street. Entertainment, food, and other festivities begin at 9 in the morning, with fireworks at 9 at night.

4. Juvia, the multi-cultural rooftop eatery located at 1111 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach. Start with a first class dinner at 6 p.m., and stay for the fireworks. Reservations required.

5. South Beach Lady cruise ship. Departs at 8 p.m. in the Hyatt Hotel dock at 400 Southeast Second Avenue. Hop on a luxury cruise for a barbecue dinner, live DJ, and excellent views of the lights on the water.

6. Florida International University Biscayne Bay Campus, 3000 Northeast 151st Street, Miami. The university is the best for people who do not like big crowds, and want to take the festivities at their own pace. Live music by NoMi Musical Nights will be at the Koven Center grounds, followed by fireworks over the bay.

7. The Perez Art Museum Miami at 1103 Biscayne Boulevard is a new modern and contemporary art gallery that opens 6:30, with an excellent view of Biscayne Bay and its fireworks show.

8. Village Green Park's Key Biscayne 4th of July Parade takes place at 400 Crandon Boulevard in Key Biscayne. If parades are your type of festivity, then this is an excellent choice. The parade begins with a jet flyover, followed by floats featuring members of the Key Biscayne community. At sunset, the fireworks are easily visible from many locations nearby.

9. Black Point Park and Marina. If you enjoy outdoor activities as the best way to celebrate, then you can spend all day at the park with their free bike and jog trails, fishing, boating, and of course, the Black Point Ocean Grill for dinner. Finally, end the day with the Fourth of July classic: fireworks. The park, located at 24775 Southwest 87th Avenue, Cutler Bay, opens at sunrise with fireworks at 9 p.m.

10. Last but not least, Homestead-Miami Speedway hosts their fifth annual "Race to the Fourth" festival, with live music by Mojo Scoundrels and Main Highway. There will be food vendors, rides for the kids, games, plus the 9 o'clock fireworks show. The festivities start at 6 p.m. at the One Speedway Boulevard, Homestead arena. Admission is free for Champions Club members, or $10-$20 for anyone else.

Penthouses are the pinnacle of condo living. Living in a penthouse means waking up to sweeping views and expansive living spaces that feel like a home in the sky. Add on luxury amenities and, well, now you’re getting the picture. While it might sound cliche and too good to be true, this is the reality of owning a penthouse.

Opinions and Advice Anatomy of HOA Fees: Are Miami Condo Fees actually High?
Condo living is often considered more convenient compared to single family houses. Someone else does almost all of your maintenance -- be it the yard, the roof, the pool, you name it. Plus, there’s typically always some kind of security/surveillance. Amenities like swimming pools, gyms and front desks staff are a standard. And, if you buy into a luxury condo, you can get access to full-service spas, wine cellars, golf simulators, lounges, or even art galleries are all part of what you can call home. And while some think there’s a price for these conveniences and little luxuries, the overall cost is about the same as living in a home. The only difference is when living in a condo, you pay one monthly fee for all this, and it’s called your HOA fees or condo fees. Especially in a city like Miami, condos pack in the entire gamut of resort-style amenities fit for a year-round staycation. Not to mention, there’s usually a team of starchitects and internationally renowned designers behind...
