4th of July Road Trip to the Best Fireworks Shows

I know, I know — the 4th of July is about more than fireworks. I have just as much respect as you do for freedom, America… all that jazz. But the inner kid in me, all he cares about is fireworks. And one thing I like to do is take Fourth of July road trips to experience fireworks shows in other parts of the country.

If a 4th of July road trip sounds like fun to you, check out Fodor’s slideshow of America’s Best 4th of July Fireworks Displays.

The only fireworks show on that list I’ve personally experienced is Chicago’s Aon Summer Fireworks at Navy Pier, which I highly recommend. Plus, Chicago is an easy weekend trip for my fellow Clevelanders.

For our customers in Dallas, the Addison Kaboom Town fireworks show in Addison, Texas, makes Fodor’s list of best fireworks shows in the USA.

I doubt any Fourth of July fireworks will ever top what I witnessed, albeit vicariously through YouTube, back in 2012. Maybe you even saw the insane videos too. Ring a bell? Maybe this will jog your memory:

It’s no surprise that the Port of San Diego’s website for its annual Big Bay Boom 4th of July fireworks show has a special page dedicated to this 2012 Big Bay Boom debacle. What a show!

What’s the best 4th of July fireworks show you’ve ever been to? Do you ever take 4th of July road trips?
