If you happen to be traveling for business around the 4th of July, consider bringing your family with you, hopping in your airport car rental and exploring some of the best places in America to celebrate Independence Day:
Boston played a huge role in kicking off the American Revolution - anyone remember the Boston Tea Party? Today, the city's week-long Independence Day celebration includes fireworks, concerts and the ever-popular Chowderfest. Be sure to check out the live reading of the Declaration of Independence.
A Midwestern business hub, Chicago also happens to be one of the best places in the country to spend the 4th of July. Chicagoans celebrate our nation's independence with music, food, baseball and spectacular fireworks at Navy Pier.
What better place to celebrate July 4 than our nation's capitol? Washington, D.C., throws a massive National Independence Day parade each year and hosts the much-anticipated Smithsonian Folklife Festival along the National Mall.
The birthplace of the American Revolution, Philadelphia is the ideal place to spend Independence Day. The City of Brotherly Love is filled with iconic relics of history, including the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Expect a 4th of July celebration you'll never forget.
