July 4th Travel

America's largest and most patriotic national holiday is the ultimate excuse for a party. Many celebrate by sprawling on a beach, barbecuing with family, and attending parades, fireworks, and concerts. We bring you everything you need to know about the best July 4th events, from New York’s iconic Macy’s display to Nashville’s annual symphony-accompanied extravaganza. Less conventional ways to celebrate include the iconic hot dog-eating contest on Coney Island, gunnysack races, and dog parades.
