The Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks display is ready to light up the city skyline, and some of the most spectacular views can be seen from the water. The display illuminates the East River annually, and nothing quite compares with watching the celebration up close from a boat. Plus, you don't have to battle the crowds with the kids.
Of course, these special cruises don't come cheaply and many are only open to ages 21 and older. We set out to find the lowest-cost July 4th fireworks cruises in NYC that also welcome children. If you're interested, book quickly. Some already have sold out and the remaining tickets will go quickly.
