A nice big city Fireworks show and cool crowd. Getting to the bridges can be tough so go early. The Fireworks are shot over the river at the Congress street bridge with music by the Austin Symphony Orchestra’s Website. If you want to get a nice spot near the bridge come early, plan on walking at least a little bit, or spring for a pedi cab ride or try to grab a scooter.
Lake LBJ – Horseshoe Bay Resort
The golf and tennis resort in Horseshoe bay is nice. A great place to take the family for a trip to lake luxury style. They typical have a nice show and you can avoid the crowds and hassle. The ATX Surf have a boat and will travel, so this will most likely be our destination of choice in 2019.
Hill Country Galleria
Starts at 4:00 Live Music, local vendors, fair rides, all in this great little Texas Hill Country neo urban strip mall town.
Will Nelson’s Picnic at the Race Track
One the best tickets in town, Willi’s legenary home town party is now out at the Race Track, Austin360 Amphitheater at Circuit of the Americas. The line up is packed with great acts including a few of my favorites: Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Steve Earle & the Dukes, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Billy Joe Shaver and the Casey Kristofferson Band among others. Cedar Park 4th of July Celebration
A family friendly place to see the Fireworks without the big crowds.
Pflugerville Pfirecracker Pfestival
The fun kicks off at 5:00 with food, live music, and stuff for the kids to-do.
Georgetown still has is’t small town charm even though Austin is closing in fast. A great place to spend America’s birthday.
The lake is a great place to watch the fireworks, especial if you have access to a boat. There are multiple shows all over Lake Travis. Voletene Beach\ Starnes Island is the place to go, but the have it on July 3 so it’s a little tough for this guy to get too worked up about it.
