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.
