Best Places to Watch Fireworks In Atlanta


Metro Atlanta is as known for its 4th of July fireworks displays as it is for its post fireworks traffic jams. Some of the best known sites for fireworks extravaganzas in the southeast are right here nearby and your Independence Day celebration can last all day long.

You can start with the Peachtree Road Race early in the morning, then head over to Stone Mountain or Lake Lanier to play outside all day until the sun goes down for the fireworks shows. The one at Stone Mountain is SO popular that they do it on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th.

Dunwoody holds a popular parade in the morning, Sandy Springs has live music and food late in the afternoon followed by a fireworks display at dusk, and the Marietta Square is a fun place to watch the city’s fireworks.


Peachtree City has a parade in the morning, a public safety expo in the afternoon, and an amazing fireworks display over Lake Peachtree at dusk.

If you want to have an assigned seat for a fireworks display, you can head to Turner Field Friday night for a Braves game and a patriotic fireworks display. Wherever you end up, have a fun and safe 4th of July weekend.
