The Best Spots to Watch 4th of July Fireworks in the Twin Cities

The 4th of July is just around the corner, and if you’re in the Twin Cities, you’re in for a spectacular treat! Whether you’re with family, friends, or enjoying a solo adventure, there are plenty of great spots to catch the fireworks. Here are our top picks for the best viewing locations:

1. Stone Arch Bridge The iconic Stone Arch Bridge offers stunning views of the fireworks reflecting off the Mississippi River. It’s a favorite spot for photographers and anyone looking to capture the perfect firework shot against the city skyline.

2. Gold Medal Park Located near the Guthrie Theater, Gold Medal Park is a beautiful spot with plenty of green space for a picnic while you wait for the show to begin. The park’s elevation also gives a great vantage point for the fireworks.

3. Boom Island Park For a family-friendly environment, head over to Boom Island Park. With its wide-open spaces and playgrounds, it’s perfect for kids and adults alike. Plus, the view of the fireworks over the river is simply breathtaking.

4. Bde Maka Ska If you prefer a more relaxed setting by the water, Bde Maka Ska is the place to be. Bring a paddleboard or kayak to enjoy the show from the lake, or simply find a cozy spot along the shore.

5. CHS Field Catch the fireworks after a Saints game at CHS Field in Lowertown, St. Paul. It’s an exciting way to end the evening, with the added bonus of baseball fun before the fireworks light up the sky.

Wherever you choose to celebrate, make sure to arrive early to snag a good spot, bring your favorite snacks, and enjoy the dazzling display of lights and colors. Happy 4th of July, Twin Cities!
