Events Across America for Independence Day: Visiting in a Rented Luxury Car for a Stylish Trip

Independence Day in America is one of the busiest travel days of the year, and no doubt you’re one of many Americans forced to hit the road. If that’s your only vacation time and you have a family, why not turn it into an unforgettable excursion?

As you drive on the highway, you might notice something – the car you’re driving looks an awful lot like every single other car there.  How many times have you wished you could travel to a major city for Independence Day in a hot Lamborghini, a Ferrari, or a Mercedes-Benz instead?

Your family budget may prohibit you from being able to buy such a car, but don’t give up your own American dream. It’s possible to rent those cars and others affordably using our service, CarHopper. Now you can set up an Independence Day excursion to a big city ahead of time since it’s easy to book your car long in advance!

Independence Day Activities in Miami

There isn’t a more popular spot on Independence Day than Miami, Florida. You’re going to run into considerable crowds for sure, but imagine being able to drive an exquisite luxury or exotic car down the roadway and turning heads in the process.

Miami has a lot going on for Independence Day each year, including their famous “America’s Birthday Bash” at Bayfront Park. This provides the largest fireworks display in the city starting at 9 p.m. each year. The park opens at 10 a.m., so you can arrive early and show off your luxury rental. You could rent a 2017 BMW I8 for only $630 per day. It’s impossible to find similar deals anywhere else in the country!

As an alternative, you might want to attend the nearby Miami Beach Fire at the Fourth Festival. Held along the North Shore Park Bandshell, this has another spectacular fireworks show at 9 p.m.

Independence Day Activities in Los Angeles

If you and your family have never visited Los Angeles on the Fourth of July, you’re in for an exciting time. Driving your luxury or exotic car there can make you look like someone prestigious. However, more than that, you can drive with luxurious amenities and complete comfort rather than being crammed into a small compact car.

In L.A., check out Grand Park and their 4th of July Block Party. You’ll find L.A.’s biggest fireworks show here, along with a fun block party perfect for your entire family. The park opens at 2 p.m. and the admission is free.

As an alternative, drive on over to the Hollywood Bowl 4th of July Spectacular. They put on a great fireworks show as well, including having major musical acts performing in the Bowl. This last year, the Bowl offered 50% off on tickets.

Did you know you could rent an Aston Martin DB11 in L.A. for only $1,709 per day? Go ahead and mark it down for next July 4.

Independence Day Activities in Las Vegas

It always gets crowded in Las Vegas on the 4th of July, but that’s no reason not to visit! Many pool clubs are available to help you celebrate in a cool pool when the temperature rises.

Head to Beer Park first at Paris Las Vegas for one of the most popular celebrations. They hold a four-day BBQ with booze buckets, meat sticks, and an awe-inspiring fireworks show.

Don’t forget about attending one of those major pool parties. Pleasure Pools at Planet Hollywood is one you can’t miss. One thing you should definitely check out is their Flowrider, an in-pool contraption that acts as somewhat of a ride.

You’ll be able to capture a lot of attention renting a Rolls Royce Ghost for only $971 per day.

The view is even better when you're watching from the comfort of your luxury car. The view is even better when you’re watching from the comfort of your luxury car.

Independence Day Activities in San Francisco

Heading west is always a good option if you have family in the San Francisco area. Temperatures are a little more seasonal, though you’ll be able to tour San Francisco in comfort after renting one of our luxury cars.

For Independence Day, consider visiting the waterfront at Fisherman’s Wharf. As all cities do, they offer live concerts and a fireworks show at 9:30 p.m.

If you’re looking for real luxury, look into Blue & Gold Fleet’s 4th of July Cruises. These have become very popular on the Fourth for obvious reasons, though they do require an all-day ticket. The cruises take you on a spectacular waterway tour of San Francisco Bay, where you can later see a fireworks show from Battery Ledyard.

It’s possible to rent a Ford Mustang to attend these events for an astounding $202 per day.

Independence Day Activities in New York City and The Hamptons

There isn’t anything more American than visiting New York City or The Hamptons for Independence Day. While not everyone can because of the luxury, you’re perhaps one of the lucky ones. Still, you need a spectacular car for fitting in with the swanky locales.

When attending New York City for Independence Day, you’re in for some of the greatest fireworks shows you’ll see in the entire country. Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks always gets a national TV broadcast. Attending in person, though, is an absolute must at least once. The technologies used in their fireworks show is beyond what you’ll see anywhere else.

Also, consider doing a Fourth of July Cruise off Chelsea Piers. You’re perhaps not aware they do this, but it’s a great vantage point to see the fireworks from the water. Costs start at $428 and go up from there.

If heading to the Hamptons, the classiness only increases on Independence Day. Many outside fireworks shows take place in the region, especially in Southampton. Montauk does another great show.

Southampton Village even puts on a 4th of July parade that starts at 9 a.m. on Independence Day morning!

You could rent a Jeep Wrangler in New York City on the Fourth for only $312 per day. In The Hamptons, a 2015 Range Rover HSE is available for only $674 per day.
