The Strip, with its flashing lights and stretch of elaborate hotels, is an American staple, and also Orbitz’s No. 1 Fourth of July vacation idea. Like it does everything, Vegas does the Fourth big. Nine different casinos set off simultaneous fireworks shows. Vegas is also always home to top-notch Fourth of July concerts; this year, see Boys II Men (who are apparently still performing?), Widespread Panic and more.

The Huffington Post named Millennium Park and the Grant Park Loop in Chicago the top places to see fireworks this summer.
