On the Island you can buy fresh oysters, Dungeness crab to prepare yourself, or choose from several restaurants that offer fresh produce and seafood. There is a zip line, a park where you can view whales in their natural habitat and there are historical sites unique to the island. You might want to bring your bikes. The fireworks set off at dark and are proceeded by ceremony. See all Roche Harbor has to offer

#3 Traverse City, Michigan Fireworks

The West Arm of Grand Traverse Bay in Michigan is a picture-perfect destination for a Fourth of July Celebration. The weekend coincides with the Traverse City Cherry Festival that takes place July 3rd – 10th

Traverse City’s Fourth of July fireworks is a testament to civic engagement. In 2011, the group that had traditionally funded the fireworks opted out. A number of locals banded together and raised enough money for a 15-minute show — since then, they’ve formed a nonprofit: the Traverse City Boom Boom Club, dedicated to ensuring that Traverse City has fireworks on the Fourth. The show, which coincides with the National Cherry Festival, is now 25 to 30 minutes long, carefully synchronized with patriotic and mainstream music, and boasts more than 1,400 fireworks.

#2 Chicago, Illinois Fireworks by Boat

Further down Lake Michigan, the Navy Pier in Chicago lights up the sky on the 4th of July. This year you don’t have to hurry to catch the display of lights on the 4th – they offer a fireworks show every Wednesday and Saturday night this summer!
