6 Philadelphia: Where better to celebrate America's independence than its birthplace? Following a week-long celebration, July Fourth kicks off with a mega parade, continues with food and entertainment on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and crescendos with a concert featuring Boyz II Men and Mary J. Blige. The evening caps with not one, but two wow-worthy firework displays in separate locales.
7 Nashville: Country music fans can enjoy the best of both worlds on July Fourth. Where else can you watch 35,000 pounds of fireworks explode after listening to an evening of greats from Chris Young to the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band?
8 Lake Tahoe: Lake Tahoe actually offers numerous firework shows for the holiday, including four in North Lake Tahoe. While all are crowd-pleasing, the 25-minute Lights on the Lake in South Lake Tahoe is the real show-stopper. Join a cruise for the best unencumbered views.
