Let’s get this out of the way: Yes, Borgata’s fireworks were amazing and the great capstone to a super relaxing and epic July 4th holiday at the resort. However, there were plenty of other signature experiences that made celebrating the nation’s birthday a ton of fun. Want the play-by-play? Check out the hourly breakdown of all of the activities leading up to the huge fireworks spectacular.
4 PM: What summer holiday wouldn’t be complete without a little water? Checking into The Water Club officially means you’ve arrived, and with sweeping views from the floor-to-ceiling windows in each room, you’ll get the perfect skyline view no matter the occasion.
5 PM: After grabbing a Pineapple Express at The Sunroom, it’s time to head out for a little rest and relaxation at The Water Club’s outdoor pools. With hundreds of lounge chairs and private cabanas, there’s plenty of room to stretch out and relax while enjoying your cocktail.
6:30 PM: All that swimming makes a person hungry! Time to recharge at Wolfgang Puck American Grille. There’s plenty of fresh, seasonal dishes that incorporate summertime veggies, like the Summer Risotto or the Blackberry Cobbler, plus delicious cocktails to wash everything down.
8 PM: Time to press your luck on one of Borgata’s brand new games on the casino floor. There’s skill-based gaming, which is just like playing video games (but with a chance to win money), or something more traditional, like the hilarious new Betty White Story Time slot machines.
9 PM: The anticipation is building for the big fireworks extravaganza. A quick stop at Borgata Baking Company for some gelato or the Borgata Beer Garden for a pint is the perfect pre-show pick me up that will add a tasty addition to the exciting fun.
9:20 PM: Boom! The event that everyone has been waiting for begins! Borgata‘s famous July 4th fireworks light up the night sky. It’s the perfect ending to a memorable holiday get-a-way that only Borgata could create. If you’re feeling jealous, why not book your own mini getaway before summer slips away?
