4th Of July In Philadelphia

There is no better place to be on Independence Day than Philadelphia – the birthplace of our nation.  The Benjamin Franklin Parkway hosts the “Largest Free Concert” in the country on July 4th with great food, fun and entertainment all day long. It all leads up to the incredible Fourth of July Jam and Grand Finale Fireworks in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

If you haven’t yet decided what you’ll be doing to celebrate the 4th of July, we at Philadelphia Limo Services have the details on all of the excitement and celebrations happening in our back yard. Check them out:

Philly 4th of July Jam and Grand Finale Fireworks
Date
: July 4, 7 p.m. – 11 p.m
Location:
Benjamin Franklin Parkway between 18th & 23rd Streets

Celebrate America’s birthday with the “Largest Free Concert in America.” The event will be hosted by Philadelphia native and comedian Kevin Hart. Musical acts include Philadelphia favorites The Roots, Ed Sheeran, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Hudson, Aloe Blacc, Ariana Grande and Vicci Martinez. Following the concert, the evening will conclude with an outstanding display of fireworks over the Philadelphia Museum of Art – a sight you have to see to believe.

If standing on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway isn’t your cup of tea, there are plenty of other locations to witness the fireworks spectacular from the parkway. Here are some of our favorite places to watch the fireworks:

       Best Western Center City (501 N 22nd St.) – The Best Western is located right on the parkway and is the closest hotel to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and affords prime views of the events if you know anyone staying there and can watch from inside (or outdoor pool deck, anyone?) or just want to situate yourself close to the action.

       Kelly Drive There are many places along the river with great views of the display, including Boathouse Row and the open field at the intersection of Kelly Drive and Sedgley Drive.

       Bistro St. Tropez (2400 Market St) – Thanks to the restaurant’s huge picture window overlooking the Art Museum, you’ll have an unblocked view of the fireworks. Enjoy dinner, an appetizer or just a cocktail at the bar. Chef Rames’ a la carte menu will be offered beginning at 5:30 p.m. Tip: call (215) 569-9269 now to receive the best seating.

       Martin Luther King Drive This is another great place, right across the the Schuylkill River from gorgeously lit Boathouse Row. Anyone driving in from the suburbs will find it convenient to settle in along here for the evening.

       Embassy Suites Philadelphia Located seven blocks from the Philadelphia Museum of Art straight down the Parkway, the Embassy Suites hotel offers a fantastic view of the fireworks

SugarHouse Casino Fireworks Show
Date:
July 5th  Fireworks begins approx. 9pm

Don’t stop the party after the 4th of July! SugarHouse Casino has their celebratory fireworks and concert on Friday, July 5th beginning at 9pm. The casino’s walkway on the Delaware River is a great place to enjoy the fireworks show and enjoy all that the casino has to offer.

Great customer service- tracking my flight, noting it was going to land 40 minutes early…and making the adjustment so someone was there to meet me at the airport early! Also, receiving a confirmation email 24 hours prior was reassuring as well. Thank you!!

Our driver arrived a few minutes early, was professional, courteous and got us to the airport for our early morning flight without any problem! The car was immaculate and comfortable. I especially liked the 24 hour and 2 hour trip notification that was sent via email. It was reassuring to know they were following up. I highly recommend Corporate Sedan for any transportation needs!
