1. Lakefront Promenade (aka Bord du Lac)

The best place to see the fireworks for the Fourth of July in Lake Charles will be the Civic Center grounds along the boardwalk for the Red, White, Blue, & You celebration! There are activities going on all day long in that spot as well, so it is good for the entire family.Get there early to claim the "best seat." If you're lucky enough to have a boat, water viewing is fantastic. 

2. North Beach/I-10 Beach

Bring your beach chairs and towels to celebrate the Fourth of July beach side! 

3. The Isle of Capri Casino

The Isle of Capri has an awesome lakeside view of the lake, but across the lake from the Civic Center grounds. Skip the grilling and take the family to eat at the buffet and then watch the fireworks.

4. L'Auberge Casino Resort (Pool Area) 

Believe it or not, L'Auberge isn't far from the downtown lake. In a water's distance, it's very close to the huge production of the fireworks for the Fourth of July! Plus it has everything for the perfect Independence Day holiday: pool and lazy river, swim up bar, and plenty of places to lounge. 

5. Golden Nugget Beach

Look to your right (northeast) and you'll see the fireworks. This won't be an "in your face" kind of fireworks show but it will give you a perfect July 4th backdrop and ambiance to an evening on the beach. To make it 100% American, grab yourself a burger and beer from Bill's Bar & Burgers. Now it's a celebration! 

6. Prien Lake Park/210 Beach

This is another great spot, although it will be a little bit tricky to see the fireworks in great detail, it will be a great place to hang out with the family and BBQ or just enjoy the water up until the fireworks start for the Fourth of July in Lake Charles.
