If your Fourth of July celebrations must start and end with a bang (don't go there), Vegas will have plenty of choices for you. Fireworks will be launched on The Strip as far south as Mandalay Bay and as far north as Stratosphere. If you're a local or have wheels, two popular off-Strip casinos will also light up the night sky. If you're not opposed to combining your Fourth with a true road trip, your options grow even larger. Here are 11 spots to enjoy fireworks on the Fourth:
Primm: Primm Valley Casino Resorts will host their annual fireworks display starting at dusk July 4. Park in the Star of the Desert Arena lot at Buffalo Bill's for the best viewing. The show will last 18 minutes. Primm is 40 miles south of Vegas on I-15.
Pahrump: The town of Pahrump, about 60 miles outside of Vegas, will mark the holiday with fireworks as well. Head to Petrack Park to watch. Fireworks will begin at 9 p.m. Arrive earlier for a daylong festival featuring games, food and live entertainment. It will take place from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. July 4.
Boulder City: Boulder City will mark its 66th annual Damboree on July 4. Fireworks will go off at 9 p.m., however, a daylong celebration is planned. A parade will take place at 9 a.m. while a carnival and live entertainment will run from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Boulder City is 20 miles from Vegas.
Henderson: The City of Henderson's July Fourth celebration at Mission Hills Park will begin at 6 p.m. and will end at 9:15 p.m. after a fireworks display. Admission will be complimentary. Shuttle service will be provided from Foothill High School (800 College Drive) beginning at 5:30 p.m. There will be live entertainment, games and food to enjoy, too. Mission Hills Park is about 20 minutes from The Strip.
Station Casinos: Off-Strip locals' casinos Green Valley Ranch and Red Rock Resort will both host fireworks displays beginning at 9 p.m. July 4. Both shows will be nine minutes in length.
Caesars Palace: The center Strip resort will launch fireworks at 9 p.m. on the fourth. You'll be able to see the display from The Strip.
The Linq: The new outdoor mall between Flamingo and The Quad will set off fireworks from the parking lot just behind The High Roller at 9:30 p.m. Since this is the first time this location will host fireworks, we're not too sure how much you'll be able to see from The Strip or The Linq.
The High Roller: Combine the best of both worlds and climb aboard the world's tallest observation wheel to try to see both of the aforementioned displays. General admission for The High Roller will be priced at $49.95 during 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on the Fourth. That price will include one drink. Or, get 24 of your friends to go in on renting your own personal party pod for $2,500 that night. Call 702.322.0537 if you're interested in that.
Mandalay Bay Beach: Head here for a Fourth concert by Phoenix, a Las Vegas classic rock band, and an after-concert fireworks display. This will be an all ages event. Doors will open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 per person, however, family four-packs are available for $60. Visit Ticketmaster to purchase.
Stratosphere: The Strat's 8 Pool will host a concert by Zowie Bowie while offering prime viewing for its fireworks display. The party will begin at 6 p.m. and run until 10 p.m. Tickets are $10. The event will be all ages. If you prefer a child-free environment, head to the Start's Level 107 Lounge instead.
