Cities with the biggest Fourth of July celebrations

Celebrating the birth of our nation is one of America's favorite holiday. It's truly a family holiday, with picnics, barbecues, outdoor games, fireworks, and reunions with friends and relatives. It also represents the commencement of hot days, summer fun, and the pleasure of being outdoors. But, first and foremost, Independence Day brings us together to celebrate as Americans, regardless of our individual heritage or political views.

Among America’s patriotic holidays – Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, and Veterans Day – it's the celebration of “The Fourth” that most evokes our history and the freedoms we enjoy. In communities across the country, fife and drum corps, marching bands, and symphony orchestras perform Sousa marches and patriotic melodies before immense gatherings, building to a crescendo of pyrotechnics, all in celebration of our country’s founding.

Well in advance of the holiday, most Americans know what they will be doing to celebrate, and children everywhere look forward to staying up late for fireworks, a highly anticipated tradition from an early age. For daytime activities, even the smallest towns and villages have their own unique salute to our nation.

While a family might look forward every year to the comfort and pleasure of attending a hometown celebration, many will occasionally change it up by traveling to a larger – or otherwise different – venue as a special treat. 24/7 Tempo has reviewed some of the largest 4th of July events, focusing on family friendly celebrations, many of them multi-day affairs, that offer a variety of activities and experiences for free or at a small cost. Some of the cities with the best celebrations are among the top places Americans will go for the Fourth of July.
