Great 4th of July Getaways
“Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here in this
land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by people, with no powers of its own except those voluntarily granted to it by the people.
We sometimes forget that great truth, and we never should.
Happy Fourth of July.”
– Ronald Reagan –
American’s sure love celebrating the country’s birthday, as they should be! An amazing American liberty is to be able to travel at one’s own free will; so why not get a head start on planning your summer of ’17 Fourth of July getaway? Here are some of the best cities to celebrate the great American party – time to get planning!
Imperial Beach, San Diego, California
As if the West Coast beaches weren’t fun enough, Imperial Beach always seems to have the best patriotic parties. If you plan the trip early enough, you can reserve a beachfront rental during the week of July Fourth for around $1,000 per week. Whether you plan a family vacation or a couples retreat, you are sure to enjoy the festivities. The best part? Glorietta Bay is about a ten-minute walk from Imperial Beach, which is where you’ll watch some of the best fireworks you’ve ever seen.
Lake Powell, Utah/Arizona
While the city celebrations can be a blast on the Fourth of July, it is well worth it to venture out of the city and check out Lake Powell. It’s a great destination for those who are active, outdoor lovers. Whether you enjoy boating or lakefront-floating, your bound to find something that pleases the whole family.
Charleston, South Carolina
The Nicholas Sparks fans are sure to love this one! In fact, we’re certain that even the non-Nicholas Sparks fans (is there such a thing?) will love Charleston, The New York Times Has named the town one of the top five places to celebrate America’s birthday. If you head south for the holiday, you should absolutely check out Patriots Point, which not only puts on a fab firework show but also offers visitors endless activity options.
Las Vegas, Nevada
This one is defiantly geared towards those in their twenties, but if you still have the patience and energy in you, you’re bound to love it at any age! Sin City is one of those places that everyone should see at least once in their lifetime. If you plan ahead, you can get some great hotel deals for July Fourth. After the killer firework shows, you can test your luck on the slot machines or go dancing with your girls on the rooftop bars!
If you’ve never partied on a Northeast beach, you’re missing out! With so much patriotic history, the small state sure knows how to throw a party. The small town of Marblehead is a great destination to visit with family or a big group of friends! You’re sure to get an Instagram-worthy picture, as the fireworks are shot off right over the harbor, with the flares illuminating the ships and the surrounding body of water.
