5 of the Best Ways to Celebrate a Charleston Fourth of July
1. Fireworks Blast at Patriots Point
One of the most popular spots to head to on the 4th of July is Patriots Point. Every year, countless people gather by the bridge to watch a fireworks show light up the night sky. You can either watch from the Yorktown Flight Deck or park and spread out a blanket at the point. Parking for the show costs $10, and USS Yorktown costs $125 per person for a VIP experience. Keep in mind that the Yorktown usually sells out well in advance, so purchase these tickets as far in advance as possible!
2. Uncle Sam Jam
What do you get when you combine dancing, fireworks, and live music? The Uncle Sam Jam! Head to the Mount Pleasant Pier for an evening of fun. It only costs $8 per person to participate. This is also a great spot to watch the fireworks display.
3. Fourth of July Water Taxi Cruise
Celebrate Independence Day out on the water! Round up the family and head to the Water Taxi. We recommend bringing a cooler with snacks and drinks along– you can bring alcoholic beverages if you would like, but don’t pack any glass! Tickets are just $30 for adults and $25 for children. The memories you will make are priceless!
4. Riverfront Park 4th of July Festival
Catch the Lowcountry’s largest fireworks show at Riverfront Park this 4th of July! This free, family-friendly event has live music, kids’ activities, food trucks, and craft vendors.
