Link Friday: The 2016 Fourth of July Edition

Posted on Thursday, June 23, 2016 by Kate

More than 40 million of us will be journeying more than 50 miles from home this Fourth of July. So, where should we go?

  • If you’re looking for the biggest, baddest fireworks celebrations, here are the top destinations.
  • If you’d rather escape the crowds, here are some low-key alternatives for families who want to unplug.
  • Or you could celebrate our nation’s independence in a less traditional way, like taking in a bodybuilding competition on Venice Beach, doing a little fence painting in Hannibal, Missouri or staying up past your bedtime for midnight fireworks in Alaksa.
  • Or you could ditch the stateside celebrations altogether and toast the good ol’ U.S. of A. from a Caribbean island. These tropical hotspots are a great deal during the summer months.
