Independence Day is less than a month away and we have all the information you need to have the best holiday ever in Austin, plus an extensive July 4th guide for the surrounding areas!

Only certain fireworks are legal within the city of Austin without a permit, so make sure you double check your facts here. However, Travis County is not under a burn ban and you are able to see all the counties in Texas with or without established burn bans here. It is important to know that you can’t buy fireworks within city limits but can find firework stands in Dripping Springs, Cedar Park, Bastrop, etc.
