Best Hotels for July 4th Fireworks
Ask For: Parkway views.
Philly’s July 4th show takes place over the Philadelphia Museum of Art—a place that makes many an American heart swell with pride, remembering Sly Stallone running its steps in Rocky. To get above the fray, check into the Four Seasons Hotel off Logan Square, where a parkway view will give you the best perspective. Or, walk out the front door and grab a spot at Swann Memorial Fountain, just across the street.
Affordable Alternative: The Hyatt Regency Penn’s Landing also offers solid views from its rooms, restaurant, bar, and even from the pool and fitness center.
Bonus Views: From the Four Seasons, the City of Brotherly Love opens up for you, including the Free Library, the Franklin Institute, and those famous Philadelphia Museum steps. Have fun watching tourists do their own version of the Rocky run.
