Lake Travis 4th of July Fireworks 2021

Are you looking for a unique way to celebrate our nation’s birthday on Independence Day? Then why not come to Lake Travis, northwest of Austin, Texas. Lake Travis is a famous playground reservoir located on the Colorado River 32 miles from Austin in the Texas Hill Country.

The lake’s clear waters, fishing, and recreational activities have made it a popular destination all year round. However, the best time to come to Lake Travis during summer is during the 4th of July celebrations.

There will be many activities taking place at lake Travis Independence Day celebrations this year, including parades, music, and fireworks.

For Independence Day 2021, you can watch fireworks shows over Lake Travis at Lago Vista, Lakeway, and Volente Beach Resorts on Starnes Island.

Starnes Island Independence Day Fireworks

Starnes Island has planned to hold the biggest fireworks show on Lake Travis this year. The island is just offshore from Beachside Billy’s and VIP Marina.
