Celebrate in Style With a 4th of July Weekend Getaway

Traditionally, we celebrate the 4th of July or Independence Day at home with friends and family, or perhaps at a local ball game. We eat lots of good food and have a few drinks before enjoying a fireworks display when evening falls. It may seem like these celebrations vary little from town to town, but many U.S. cities put on events to mark the special day – and you can choose from several 4th of July destinations if you want to enjoy a special weekend away.
