Best places to celebrate Independence Day in the USA

Philadelphia

Where better to celebrate America’s independence than in the city of the nation’s birth – Philadelphia?  The old stomping ground of the Founding Fathers, this history-rich city lays claim to being the place where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were both drafted.  With a superb week-long celebration, the Philadelphia festivities include a parade through the city centre, a concert on  scenic Parkway and a fireworks display over the Philadelphia Museum of Art.       

Thousands gather in Washington DC for the 4th of July celebrations

Washington DC

Washington DC's free 90-minute musical extravaganza, ‘A Capitol Fourth’, starts with a parade on the National Mall and continues with a performance by The National Symphony Orchestra (and plenty of famous guests) before finishing with a flourish as the orchestra plays along while the fireworks display lights up the sky over the city's monuments.   Chic Washington DC offers a fantastic range of trendy July breaks, perfect for a cosmopolitan getaway with a fabulous range of restaurants, entertaining shows, stylish shopping and buzzing nightlife.  The public museums are unparalleled in size and scope, and the city boasts the lion's share of the nation's most treasured monuments and memorials.

 

Fireworks over Mount Rushmore make for an iconic sight

Mount Rushmore

With the faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt serving as a backdrop, the Independence Day celebration at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota honours US military veterans, with impressive flyovers and cultural celebrations of American heritage.  You can follow the Avenue of Flags from the Concession Building to the Presidential Trail - a half-mile path that’ll get you up close to the mountain carvings.  South Dakota is also rich in prehistoric exhibits, Wild West legends and Native American stories.

 

The locals of San Francisco celebrate the forth of July in lots of ways

San Francisco

The states on the West Coast may not have been part of the country back in 1776, but that doesn't mean they don't know how to party on the Fourth of July.  San Francisco's Independence Day celebrations take place at historical waterfront Fisherman's Wharf.  Pier 39 celebrates with fun for the whole family featuring musical entertainment, fireworks and games. 

 

The parade celebrates elements of tradition in Rhode Island

Rhode Island

Take part in a little bit of American history by joining the celebrations in Bristol, Rhode Island, the smallest of the six states of New England and the scene of the oldest continuous Fourth of July celebration in the country, with baseball games and fun runs. The first parade was held in 1785, and they haven't missed a year since.
