As part of our tour of America we'll so happen to be in NY for the 4th of July. As this is our first time in America we have no idea of what to do or where to go to celebrate. We are on a budget as were travelling both east and west coasts so nothing to expensive, I heard however that you can go on a cruise that night on the Hudson. Is this worth it or is there many other things available to do.
Many thanks in advance

I've heard a lot of great things about the Revolutionary Era Walking Tour where you tour many historic sites from our nation's beginnings. http://www.nyctourist.com/nyctravel/4th-of-july There is also a "Mini Declaration Signing" where kids can participate in the history and how the declaration came about. Of course there will be parades and other events going on around town!
I have heard the cruises are amazing, but I know they are between $125-$165 per a person which might be a lot if you are on a budget. There are many places across the river where you would be able to see the fireworks as well.
Do you have your july 4th plans set? Check out the main event for that day: Macy's 4th of July Fireworks
