Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas
For the best backyard barbecue atmosphere, you’ll want to head to the rooftop of the Paris Hotel & Casino. Ironically, this is where you’ll find the most American of bars: the Budweiser Beer Park. Just across the street from the famous Bellagio Fountains, this bar & grill has more than 100 beer options, high-definition TVs streaming all the popular sporting events, and barbecue masters serving up all your favorite slow-cooked, smoked, and grilled foods.

The Park outside T-Mobile Arena
If you’ve never visited The Park, located between New York-New York and T-Mobile Arena, you are definitely missing out on a unique Las Vegas experience. This newer entertainment district features an immersive blend of restaurants, bars, and live entertainment. If you’re looking for a rowdy crowd on the Fourth of July, this is the best spot to play bar games and grab a cold brew at Beerhaus, knock back some sake bombs at Sake Rok, and party just steps away from the home of the Vegas Golden Knights. This is also an ideal location to view the fireworks that will blast off from nearby Caesars Palace, The STRAT, and Mandalay Bay.
You can access The Park from the Monorail’s MGM station. When you exit, take the walkway across the street towards New York-New York and you’re there!

About 20 minutes west of the Las Vegas Strip, Red Rock Casino is part of the Station Casinos chain and offers a beautiful view of the mountains, a sparkling resort-style pool, and a massive casino floor away from the chaos you’ll find on Las Vegas Blvd. The fireworks show is scheduled to start at 9:00 pm on July 4th with a designated viewing area by the pool and amphitheater.
