Fort Lauderdale Fireworks on the Beach

By: Kara Franker


It’s one of my favorite holidays of the year! The Fourth of July is a great time to get together with the whole family and enjoy a spectacular fireworks presentation on the beach.

That’s the beauty of celebrating Independence Day in Florida – fireworks with an ocean view. You might as well make an entire vacation out of the holiday! Come down to Fort Lauderdale and enjoy several sunshine-filled days of fun.

The family-friendly festivities at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa begin on July 4, 2013 with indoor and outdoor patriotic activities and events for every age including one of those crazy bounce houses, live animals shows and friendly competitions on the resort’s private beach.

At dusk on the Fourth of July, the City of Fort Lauderdale will light up the night sky with a fantastic firework presentation. The little ones can ooh and ahh while the grownups in the group take in the sights with a cocktail in hand at Sea Level Restaurant & Bar.

Insider Tip: Did you know that throughout the year, the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa offers special wellness packages? Check out this story for more info, Wellness Head-to-Toe: Stay Fit on the Beach
