limo service pittsburgh, pittsburgh limo ,pittsburgh eventThis year's Fourth of July is fast approaching, and no matter what exciting plans you made during the day, watching the EQT Flashes of Freedom Fireworks with your friends or family is the best way to end it. Once again this year's show is produced by the internationally award-winning fireworks and special effects company, Pyrotechnic. Every year, Pittsburgh's fireworks display is one of the top shows in the country, and this year will be no exception. If you still don't know where you will see the show, here are five of the best places in Pittsburgh to catch it.

Heinz Field: Every true Pittsburgh resident is a Steelers fan, so what could be better than celebrating the Fourth Steelers-style? Heinz Field opens its doors to fans for free on July Fourth at 2pm and offers a wide range of family-friendly events. musical entertainment, and good old Steelers' fun. Don’t forget to stay for a great view of the fireworks!

The North Shore Riverfront Park and Trail: Located along the banks of the Allegheny, the North Shore provides an uninterrupted view of the fireworks. Just spread a blanket on the grass of the Great Lawn for a picnic, or grab a seat on the Water Stairs — you should try to arrive in the late afternoon if you want to find a place to sit because this viewing area can get crowded as the scheduled time for the show gets closer.

Point State Park: For people who loves to be in the heart of a celebration, then Point State Park is where they need to go. From watching the annual regatta, to catching multiple musical acts, events, historical reenactments, and enjoying All-American culinary classics, join the throngs of people in Point State Park at the "Golden Triangle" who will be celebrating the nation's birthday. Come early to enjoy a day at the park,and try to claim some of the coveted seats around the fountain to experience the show.

The West End Elliot Overlook Park: Located in the Elliot neighborhood, this small park is a perfect place to see the show. Although, a little far from the action of downtown, the clear view, a smaller crowd, and kid-friendly activities makes the West End Elliot Overlook Park an ideal place to spend the Fourth with your family. 

From the deck of a boat: If you are so lucky to know someone who has a boat in Pittsburgh during the Fourth, maybe the best spot to be is onboard — no crowds, a full fridge, and a private head. What a wonderful way to see the fireworks! 

Wherever you decide to watch the fireworks at 9:35 pm on the Independence Day — have a healthy, and happy Fourth of July!
