The Fourth of July is the most important patriotic holiday for the United States of America. This celebration of independence gives the whole American people the opportunity to display their patriotism. It also provides American workers with an opportunity to take a break from the daily grind and simply relax and celebrate the freedoms that come with living in such a unique country. Spending a calm day at home surrounded by friends and family members may sound appealing, but for more active types, you will undoubtedly want to get out and enjoy the sights and sounds of your favorite American destination. If you donít want to spend your holiday at home, take a look at these top vacation spots recommended by Independence Bunting.

Mount Rushmore

Mount Rushmore is one of the most recognizable man-made sites in the United States, but many people donít know that the area offers one of the most unique Independence Day celebrations in the country. The Avenue of Flags leads from the siteís concession building all the way to the Presidential Trail (a half mile hiking path that offers up-close views of the mountain). The site has its own array of museums and memorials that inform visitors about the history of the carvings. The site also celebrates the holiday with a traditional lighting ceremony later on in the evening.

Boston

As a city that played a major role in the American Revolution, Boston will certainly have its share of interesting sights and sounds this July. The city hosts a six-day event known as Boston Harborfest, which starts on the second of July and continues through Independence Day. The event primarily emphasizes the cityís strong colonial heritage, and multiple celebrations are held throughout the city. Another event that occurs during the celebration is the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, which is free to the public.

Washington, D.C.

No 4th of July travel list would be complete without a visit to Washington, D.C. The city hosts the annual National Independence Day Parade which offers a multitude of floats, balloons, and bands marching up and down Constitution Avenue. A Capitol Fourth, a massive concert on the Capitol Buildingís front lawn, draws thousands of visitors from around the country. Finally, the celebration would not be complete without an incredible fireworks display at night. You may even catch a glimpse of the Commander in Chief as he celebrates the patriotic holiday at the White House.

The San Juan Islands

Famous for its large population of bald eagles, the San Juan Islands are located off the coast of Washington State. The area also features a massive beach named the Fourth of July Beach that offers breathtaking views of Griffin Bay. The San Juan Islands offers a picnic that commemorates the ďPig WarĒ that took place on the island in the 1800s.

Donít Sit Around

All of these locations are ideal for a Fourth of July trip, and the cost of visiting these sites are relatively low, especially if you book airfare in advance and are willing to be flexible with your travel dates. If you donít know how you or your family will be spending your 4th of July yet, consider the destinations in this list. You will definitely never want to celebrate the holiday on the couch again.
