Summertime is filled with pool days, boat days, backyard BBQ's, and also holidays! Fourth of July is always so much fun, gearing up in the best patriotic outfit you can find and recruiting your best friends who know how to have a good time! While some like to put on firework shows of their own (at your own risk!), we know some of you just like to take your family somewhere that has a lot of activities, food, and a great fireworks show that requires no effort on the home front or spend some quality time with your friends/spouse on America's birthday! If you want to know where to go, look below!
