2010 Press Releases
Celebrate July 4th and National Treasures in Top U.S. Destinations with Viator.com
July 1, 2010
Anyone in Las Vegas on July 4th should watch out for whiplash with the high number of fireworks shows planned at places like Caesar's Palace, Mandalay Bay, The Village at Lake Las Vegas and five of the Station Casinos. Once the skies are clear, travelers on the Strip will enjoy the Las Vegas Night Strip Helicopter Tour, the incredibly unique Las Vegas Dinner in the Sky or the brand new Exotic Car Driving Experience Power Package (what color Ferrari will that be?). The wonder of the Grand Canyon is well explored from Sin City with many activities including the very popular Grand Canyon All American Helicopter Tour with champagne brunch in the canyon; the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam Day Trip from Las Vegas with Optional Skywalk and the exhilarating Grand Canyon Rafting Trip from Las Vegas.
NEW YORK CITY
The annual Macy's Fourth of July fireworks in New York City return to the Hudson River this year and will feature more than 40,000 shells. Check out the spectacular views from the sky during the Manhattan Sky Tour: New York Helicopter Flight. For uniquely New York dining experiences, the New York Dinner Cruise combines exploration of the Hudson with amazing views and cuisine while the Harlem Sunday-Morning Gospel Tour provides a cultural overview of this historic New York neighborhood and a soul food brunch. And at a time when American's celebrate their National Day, New York is home to a one-of-a-kind opportunity to commemorate and celebrate the lives of those lost on September 11th with the Ground Zero Museum Workshop Tour.
With a waterfront celebration on Sunday at Pier 39, San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges will be lit by the glow of fireworks after dark. The San Francisco City and Alcatraz Tour provides travelers with a city overview and includes a ferry trip to Sausalito and a visit to Alcatraz. The Bay Area represents the cultural diversity exhibited across the country experienced first-hand during the San Francisco Chinatown Walking Tour. To celebrate the gifts of Northern California that were there long before any travelers were, the Yosemite National Park and Giant Sequoias Trip (best known for its waterfalls) and the Muir Woods, Giant Redwoods and Sausalito Half-Day Trip (a National Monument) give travelers an opportunity to experience the magnitude of some of America's most beautiful natural treasures.
