Independence Day is celebrated like few other holidays in the United States. Fireworks, parties, and summer vacation help make patriotism shine during this spectacular celebration. Since this year marks notable anniversaries of the end of many significant conflicts in US history, it is a great time to take the celebration a step further. These are some of the best cities to spend the 4th of July this year.
Celebrate the anniversary of our nation in one of the cities that is given credit for its birth. Few American cities can claim as much long lived patriotism as Boston. Visit the home of Paul Revere and state government buildings that predate the revolution. Stunning fireworks shot over the Charles River can be enjoyed from either bank and are the highlight of several days of festivities and celebrations.
The center of our government and home to memorials to our nation’s history, Washington, D.C. celebrates the 4th of July with enthusiasm. A massive parade, music on the Capitol lawn, and fireworks over the National Mall are just a few of the sites you will want to take in. Celebrate with special Independence Day activities at the Smithsonian or the National Archives, which is home to the Declaration of Independence.
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Not only is South Carolina proud to be one of the original 13 colonies, but Myrtle Beach is a popular summer vacation destination in its own right. The people here celebrate each 4th of July with fireworks at the beach, music, and a wide array of patriotic activities for the entire family to enjoy.
With a backdrop of Lake Michigan for their fireworks display, you will find few shows like the one in Chicago. Celebrate the 4th with a trip to Chicago’s famous museums, experience the sounds of the music festival, or spend the day at Navy Pier. Chicago always has much to explore, and 4th of July is no exception. Consider a boat cruise to enjoy the fireworks from the water.
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii
History enthusiasts will appreciate the poignancy of celebrating the 70th Independence Day since the end of World War II at the place where it began for America. Pearl Harbor offers opportunities to visit memorials to those who died and remember the reasons we celebrate our freedom. A festival with family-friendly activities is followed up by a spectacular fireworks display over the waters of Pearl Harbor.
