Tomorrow is the Fourth of July, which means anyone with a view of the fireworks is probably scrambling to get all the supplies ready for their barbecue, while everyone else is trying to figure out how they’ll get there. It’s the one time of year when the maximum capacity for patios and rooftop decks is seriously tested. If you’d like to be the one getting texts from people you haven’t heard from in months to see “what you’re up to for the 4th,” then these are the homes for you! Each has a jealousy-inducing view of a professional fireworks display.
Who Needs Fireworks with This View?
This two bedroom condo is on the 27th floor and has stunning views of the Bay Bridge. Your guests can watch the Pier 39 fireworks display from the condo’s patio, or through the large bay windows in the living room. When the show is over you can walk down and keep the party going in the building’s club room or movie theater.
Where the Emerald City Sparkles
This two-bedroom condo is right next to Gas Works Park, with awe-inspiring views of the city skyline and Lake Union. It has a large deck where your friends can gather to watch the fireworks display, and the open kitchen and dining area offer plenty of room to cook a Fourth of July-themed feast.
A Wonder in the Windy City
This condo soars above Chicago on the 51st floor of the Trump Tower, with views of Navy Pier, the Chicago River, Lake Michigan, Millennium Park, The Bean and the city skyline. The open floor plan offers plenty of room for guests to mingle while watching the fireworks display out of the tall bay windows. The modern kitchen has everything you need to host a dinner party, or you could just eat at the Michelin-rated restaurant downstairs.
Livin’ La Vida Long Beach
Located right on the Pacific Ocean, this elegant home offers expansive views of Catalina Island, Belmont Pier and the harbor lights from all three levels.
