Did anyone have any good 4th of July experiences this year?

My girlfriend and I drove to Philadelphia and watched the fireworks from our hotel that was really close to all the action as well as taking in all the historical sites during the day. It was really cool except that the fireworks were only 20 minutes long. The best part was that we had the same view as the television camera that was one hotel over smile.gif

I didn't have a "4th of July" experience at all... I went to Montreal for the Jazz Festival!

I was in Provo, Utah...in the daytime checked out the pretty lakes and picturesque mountains and at night, barbecued and watched fireworks. Pretty relaxing day. :-)

We were in Gulf Shores, Alabama with family. We cooked out and watched fireworks from our rental beach house. Fun times!

Oh I've always wanted to go down there, it must've been beautiful. Do you go often?

I assume you're talking to me? We go every year, usually a couple trips. We love it!
