Fourth of July 2009 Cruises and Festivities – Where Will You Be?

Independence Day, celebrated every Fourth of July in the US, is a favorite of many families because it gives everyone an opportunity to take time out from their everyday busy schedules for a chance to indulge at a picnic or barbecue and take in a festive fireworks display. This year, why not add an extra special element to your Fourth of July by taking a relaxing holiday-themed cruise at the destination of your choice? For those who are excited at the prospect of spending the 4th out on the water, you can rest easy knowing that there are a number of attractive options at your disposal. The following are some suggested spots that might serve to make your celebration the best one yet:

-Baltimore, MD This location is listed first because its proximity to the US capital makes it the ideal place to celebrate America’s independence. The cruise itself includes an extravagant dinner buffet, entertaining fireworks show, and top-notch entertainment. However, these are only a few of the reasons to take your holiday out on the waters of the Patapsco River.

-Boston, MA Boston travelers have a bunch of options to choose from when it comes to cruising the Harbor. Cruises range from casual to elegant, so whatever the need, there is sure to be a cruise to fulfill it. Currently, offerings include several dinner cruises and lobster lunch cruises.

-Savannah, GA Guests can choose between the Savannah River Queen and the Georgia Queen riverboats for a 90-minute glimpse at Savannah after nightfall. The evening is made complete with a spectacular fireworks display and a DJ that spins musical favorites. This cruise takes place out on the glistening waters of the Savannah River.

-New York, NY Cruises along the Hudson River are especially popular this year, as the Macy’s Fireworks Show will take place there to celebrate the 400th anniversary of English Captain Henry Hudson’s voyages. Incredible views of the Manhattan skyline are featured on this voyage hosted by Bateaux New York.

-Chicago, IL Those heading to the ‘Windy City’ are able to celebrate America’s birthday on a dinner and dance cruise departing from the historic Navy Pier on Lake Michigan. The Navy Pier fireworks show, combined with the already wonderful view of the city from the deck of the boat, makes this cruise a real treat.

-San Francisco, CA The cruises in San Francisco include a four-course seated dinner and an evening of dancing under the stars in the City by the Bay. Colorful fireworks and free-flowing premium champagne appropriately mark the occasion. Live bands are also on board to perform hits from the past and present as passengers take in an exquisite view of the illuminated city as it passes by in the background. Those looking to cruise during the day are able to book a lunch time cruise as well. These are, of course, only a few of the cruise options available this Fourth of July.
