The United States of America celebrates its independence from Great Britain on the Fourth of July. For many Americans, this means celebrating with a backyard BBQ with friends and family and watching fireworks after the sun goes down. Although this may seem like a holiday best celebrated in the United States, many families are taking this celebration down south to Mexico. Fourth of July may be a distinctly American holiday, but Rocky Point, Mexico, has become more and more welcoming of the traditions of the American tourists. If you are looking to celebrate America’s birthday in a beachside paradise, Rocky Point 4th of July may be a great choice for you and your family!
Summer Fun at Rocky Point 4th of July
Rocky Point may have once been a quiet fishing village, but its warm sandy beaches and friendly locals have transformed it into a bustling tourist town. The water is warmest during the summer months, making April through October the busiest time of year in Rocky Point. The resorts, bars, and restaurants are in the full swing of tourist season, and it’s the best time of year for fun activities in the town and the surrounding area.
If you are simply looking to relax and have fun at the beach, snorkeling or shelling along the shore is a great way to find the famous fresh seafood and see the diverse ocean fish. Those who enjoy more thrill seeking will want to rent a jet ski or even go parasailing over the clear waters. One of the best destinations in the Rocky Point area is Bird Island, a wildlife nature preserve full of dozen of species of fish and birds; you can even spot dolphins or orcas during certain times of the year!
Adventure After Dark
For many people, however, the fun daytime activities of Rocky Point are only half of the fun. The town truly transforms once the sun goes down into a fun, exciting hotspot. Especially during fun holidays throughout the year, such as Fourth of July, the local bars pull out all the stops to make sure everyone has a great time.
Over Rocky Point Fourth of July weekend, Sonoran Resorts hosts an annual Las Vegas Night for Charity featuring blackjack, poker, and roulette. One of the most popular bars in Rocky Point, Banditos, hosts a lively night full of live music. You can also purchase fireworks in town and set them off at one of the local public beaches and have your private Fourth of July party. Holiday are simply more fun in Rocky Point!
