The City of St. Cloud is throwing their day-long Lakefront Fourth of July festivities with vendors and exhibitors from all over Florida. Music and food will also be aplenty throughout the even guaranteeing a day of fun for the family. And it wouldn't be a Fourth of July celebration without fireworks so expect St. Cloud to light up the sky come nightfall.

For those looking to celebrate from the comfort of a resort, look into the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate and Reunion Resort. Both resorts are offering exclusive events for guests staying on property. From grilling out by the pool to magnificent firework displays at night, these resorts are perfect for celebrating Independence Day.

If a fireworks show isn't enough to capture how you feel about America's independence ('Merica!), use the day to visit one of the four neighboring theme parks. Whether you're looking to spend the day choosing a wand at Diagon Alley, hang out with the main mouse in a Castle, or riding Orlando's tallest and fastest roller coaster, you will definitely get your Fourth of July fix of thrills at any of the theme parks.
