Stars, Stripes and Savings: From Traditional July 4th Getaways to Unique Celebrations

Stars, Stripes and Savings - Celebrate July 4thCelebrate Independence Day at some of America’s most historic and patriotic destinations! On July 4th, there will be fireworks displayed across the country whether it is on a pier, in the downtown area of your state or in the backyard of your homes (if the law permits). Aside from taking pride in the red, white and blue with the booming of fireworks and a hot dog or hamburger (whichever you prefer) at hand – some states have their own unique celebrations.

Boston Chowderfest
During the Boston Chowderfest, which takes place at the beautiful Harborfest, approximately 12,000 participants chow down to select the best chowder from Boston-area restaurants. The samples and style of chowder can vary from thin and soupy with minced clams, to hearty, thick and creamy chowder with potatoes. If you love chowder then this is a must-see event for you this Fourth of July.

Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest (Brooklyn, New York)

Marking its 95th year, contestants chomp down hot dog after hot dog in hopes of getting the famous Nathan’s Mustard Belt along with cash prizes. Also, when visiting Coney Island check out the attractions and historical sites in the great Brooklyn area.

Gettysburg Civil War Re-enactment
Marking its 147th re-enactment this year, the Gettysburg Civil War re-enactment takes place in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Pig War Picnic
Just off the coast of Washington State lie the San Juan Islands. Visit the Fourth of July Beach along Griffin Bay and don’t miss the annual Pig War Picnic, named for the so-called “Pig War” waged on the island between Brits and Americans in 1859. The picnic takes place on nearby Price Street, following the Fourth of July parade, and serves up equal parts burgers and hot dogs with good old-fashioned fun. Also, marvel at the gorgeous nature San Juan has to offer such as watching a Bald Eagle fly overhead, which is sure to put you into a stars-and-stripe state of mind.
