Fourth of July is coming up! And if you’re in NYC, you know better than to wait last minute to make any plans. We all know how the city’s a crowded place. But, it gets incredibly crowded during any and every holiday, even Arbor Day…and there’s like, barely even any trees in the city. 4th of July is clearly no exception to this rule, and this year there’s plenty of patriotic Independence Day parties to attend in the Big Apple. You could even start your NYC fourth of July fun on July 3rd.
The perfect pre-4th of July party is right here aboard the beautiful Serenity Yacht. This spacious vessel is the premier destination for pre-4th of July festivities. The Serenity has two air-conditioned interior decks, and an open sky deck. There will also be a live DJ dedicated to playing the right tracks to groove to throughout the night. Have some fun, some drinks, and some nice fresh air accompanied with sweet views of the Manhattan skyline. However, you won’t have the added pleasure of being treated to a fireworks show, like some other cruises we may know about.
What’s so great about 4th of July?
*Gasp We can’t believe you just said that! The fourth of July is one of, if not THE most beloved holidays in the US. But what makes this holiday so beloved by Americans? Well for starters, it’s hard to resist a reason to go grill up some good grub, hang with your loved ones, and play with explosives. But it’s more than just the food and fireworks. There’s an inner national pride that awakens during the fourth of July in all of Americans, whether immigrated or homegrown.
Now, you’ve probably heard the old adage of America being “unique” because it’s a melting pot of some sort. Which is true, but there are lots of other places in the world that can be described as that. What makes the U-S- of-A so interesting in particular, is all the ingredients in that melting pot, and how more ingredients just keep getting added all the time, yet it never loses its distinct taste. At the heart of what makes this country (and city) so great is the fact that people all over the world come here and work, eat, and most importantly, party together.
NYC Fourth of July Traditions
For the past 40 some odd years, retail giant Macy’s has put on an extravagant fireworks show in New York City. Much like Macy’s other famous holiday extravaganza, this event has grown from just a staple in the big city, to being televised across the entire country. If you’ve ever been in NYC to catch this spectacle, you know how hard it is to find the perfect spot. The parks, city streets, boardwalks, and piers are packed with people camping out hours before the show starts. Forget THAT! Watch the Macy’s fireworks show in style on one of these family-friendly cruises.
