Feeling Patriotic in Style

Looking for things to do on the 4th of July? Why not take the Circle Line cruise around Manhattan, which does a loop-de-loop around the Statue of Liberty. It’s an amazing to see the Statue up close.

The main attraction of July 4 in New York is Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island. ESPN will air the hot dog eating contest live at 11 am. Last year, more than nine million viewers tuned in. What’s more of an American celebration than overeating? Overeating hot dogs, for sport. On friggin’ TV. The world’s best-known competitive snack-down, Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, is back at Coney Island. Thousands gather to watch as the most talented gluttons prove just how many of America’s finest delicacy they can swallow (and keep down) in 10 minutes. The current record to break? 68 wieners.

Feeling in the mood to dance? Check out the Midsummer Night Swing with David Ostwald’s Louis Armstrong Eternity Band. Lovers of jazz music, unite! on July 4, Lincoln Center’s alfresco danceathon taps into the music of Louis Armstrong when David Ostwald’s Eterniry Band delivers hits by the American trumpeter.

Why not a Fourth of July Beach Party? Live music, booze, food, fireworks and a beach view—you can’t ask for much more than that on Independence Day. Last year’s party began at 9am and went until midnight, so assume you’re in for a full day of partying, unless you need to leave for a quick drunken ride on the Cyclone (you will definitely be tempted). The blowout ends with an incredible firework display at 9:30pm. Best viewing location: The Steeplechase Plaza and the Coney Island Boardwalk.

For a full day of truly American festivities, head to New Jersey’s Liberty State Park. Only a short ferry ride from the city, this large park sits in the shadow of Lady Liberty herself with great views of Ellis Island, the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline. Starting at 1pm, the full day of programming includes carnival rides, food trucks, a South House beer garden and live music. A lengthy fireworks show above the Statue of Liberty ends the day as a perfect salute to the nation.

All aboard the Hornblower Hybrid for this Fourth of July cruise! On this beautiful, eco-friendly yacht you’ll enjoy a buffet of American picnic foods like corn on the cob, codfish cakes, BBQ chicken breasts and pulled pork sliders. Completely unobstructed by the crowds and the tall buildings of the shore. You’ll feel so excited by the display of fireworks over the Statue of Liberty—and the effects of the open bar—that you won’t hesitate for a moment to dance to the live DJ afterward. Boards at Pier 15.
