Make Your Own Declaration For Independence and Head to Vegas For The 4th.

Who needs the ocean when you can enjoy the 4th of July surrounded by sand and neon?  If you are looking for something different this year to do for the holiday weekend, Las Vegas is the spot.  With it falling on a Friday there is no reason why you can’t pack your gear early and spend the 3 day weekend in the city that gives a whole new meaning to civil liberties.

The 4th of July is a notorious beach day and in Las Vegas you can make it Encore Beach day at the Wynn Hotel.  Here you set up your umbrella in a private cabana complete with frig and T.V or go upscale in one of their 8 bungalows and chill out in your own hot tub.  If you only brought a blanket there are also daybeds scattered around the pool along with chaise lounges and sofas. And don’t worry if you forgot the water wings, Encore Beach allows you to float around the pool on your own little lily pad.

It isn't a beach party without tunes, and at this one you will be dancing around the water poles to a mix of party music delivered by world class DJ’s Afrojack, David Guetta and Avicil.  Encore Beach club doesn’t overlook any details in making this the ultimate beach party scene.  There is access to a grill if you feel like a flipping burger or the menu of the restaurant if you splurged on a cabana.  You can even remind yourself you’re in Vegas and take a time-out from the beach at the gaming tables.  The only thing missing from this beach is the sand, and there is plenty of that out in the desert.

While you will get your fair share of lights in the sky to oohh and aahh at, the real fireworks will continue as the beach club turns into a nightclub. Surrender, as in “we surrender you bloody Yanks”, is the perfect setting to celebrate Independence Day Vegas style.  Just like the resort that houses it, Surrender caters to your sophisticated side.  That doesn't mean you won’t be treated to an erotic go-go dancer shaking it on the stripper pole, it just means you get to watch her dancing in style.

Celebrity DJ’s like Erik Prydz and Knife Party will spin the party up close and personal, their beats enhanced by a creative light show that is just as entertaining as the lights Grucci sets off.  If you do feel nostalgic and want to see the real thing, just step outside to the patio and look up. Surrender makes good use of the Encore space by expanding the nightclub to the pool area, letting you enjoy the best of both worlds at the same time.

Ditch the cooler and boom box and head to Vegas this year for the 4th of July weekend.  You still get the beach, the bikinis, and the fireworks, along with a whole lot more.
