Sure, setting off firecrackers in your own backyard can be fun. But nothing beats the big productions in the center of town. When the explosions sparkle against the night sky, it looks like a sea of falling stars.
Plus, the festivals that lead up to the big show are full of delicious food from local restaurants and musical performances of local entertainment. If you don't want to miss out on this year's Fourth of July fun then you have to check out this page on the MapMuse site.
MapMuse is a free site that helps you find fun, seasonal activities in your area. They have a special page full of July 4th fireworks displays. This well-organized site shows you the location, phone number, and website associated with each community event.
All 50 states and Washington D.C. have their own link that takes you to a list of the events in that region. But before you even click the link, a number next to the state's name will tell you how many activities are happening.
Click a state's name and the next page will be a list of cities where the events are occurring. Just like the prior page, there's a number next to each link that tells you how many activities are happening in that city. Once you're on a city's page, click an event's name to find out where, what time, and if there's a cost to attend.
Or, you could skip all the clicking through each page and type your city or ZIP code into the search bar. Then you'll get a list of all the events near you. You can also look at a map of all the activities to help you plan a route if you want to attend more than one.
