There’s no better place to take in the country’s birthday than Washington, DC. Our 4th of July celebration starts with an eccentric, red, white, and blue parade down Constitution Avenue between 7th and 17th streets. After the parade, take a seat on the National Mall to watch the colorful fireworks light up the capital’s monuments and other historic buildings. Put on by the National Park Service, the pyrotechnics show is one of the most beloved in the country, so arrive with plenty of time to spare to claim your spot.
