We need to leave our home 4th of July weekend because the fireworks are too loud, too close by, and so we can't sleep and it bothers our dogs. I wondered about going to a city - to a hotel that's not in a residential neighborhood. I know we'll hear and see some fireworks from the hotel, but it should be a normal night aside from that right? Lexington doesn't go nuts that night?
But I am looking at the 2 La Quintas, one is north and one is southeast of downtown, maybe we wouldn't hear a lot of fireworks in those areas?

We do have fireworks in Lexington on the Fourth of July, as is the case for most American towns and cities. And yes, the fireworks are generally shot off downtown (locations have been known to vary in recent years). I am not sure just where the La Quintas you mention are located, but if they are near I-75, you should only hear faint rumbles.

If you prefer to celebrate the Fourth differently, consider the very popular annual July 3 free evening concert of patriotic music in front of Old Morrison (beautiful old structure) on the Transylvania University campus.

Bring a picnic or snacks, folding chairs or a blanket, wear red, white, and blue, and enjoy the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra and often the Lexington Singers choral group. Only fireworks present will be sparklers and maybe a few small firecrackers. If it rains, the concert gets moved inside a nearby auditorium.
