The patriotism in America is truly something unique. When you visit the massive continent, try to time it for the summer time, around the 4th of July. Depending on the area you are visiting, you will get an array of different opportunities to take part in events or simply watch the glory of the day’s celebrations taking place. But which area should you go to when visiting at this time of the year?
If you have a particular love for the beach and want to make sure you are situated near the sound of crashing waves, there are many spots that you can visit to be in your perfect 4th of July setting. Virginia Beach is possibly one of the most patriotic spots to be during this time; taking a walk along the promenade will give you excellent views of the fireworks display as well as many live performances. You could also visit Huntington Beach in California. As one of America’s most famous beaches, with its magnificent pier, it would certainly be a treat to see how the city transforms on the spectacular day.
If you enjoy more of a historical setting, you can visit the National Mall and, more specifically, the US Capitol Building. This is where the annual “A Capitol Fourth” concert will take place. The event is free, and tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Make sure you watch the parade, which travels along Constitution Avenue, before you go to the concert to truly experience patriotism at its finest.
The Big Apple
Of course, we can’t leave out the Big Apple. Visiting New York during the 4th of July, you are able to start your celebrations off by watching the annual “Nathan’s Famous Hotdog Eating Contest” and finish with the famous “Macy’s 4th of July fireworks display”. You can choose to watch the display from a rooftop bar, a park, or from the side of the East River, either way you will enjoy every second.
Music always seems to set the tone of events, so why not visit an area that offers some of the best musical experiences on the 4th of July? With “Music City” as its nickname, you know Nashville will be setting up some incredible musical experiences and, with multiple genres and artists, visiting Downtown Nashville is something you need to do if you are looking to dance and sing along to astonishing 4th of July live performances.
