Concord Point Lighthouse July 4th Celebration – Havre De Grace, MD

1. Havre de Grace, MD

You may have already seen the photo, but I went to Havre de Grace last year for the 4th of July fireworks and couldn’t have loved it more!  Not only are you on the beautiful waterfront, but if you’re sitting in the park, the fireworks explode beautifully behind the Concord Point lighthouse.  Not only are there fireworks, but you can also enjoy the little carnival set-up, great food, and more.  Best of all, they celebrate for multiple days!  Click here for more information.

2. Washington, DC

Of course, Washington DC puts on a great fireworks show to celebrate America’s independence.  There is so much to do in DC anyway, that during the day you wouldn’t be bored waiting for the main event.  You’ll also see parades, music, and so much more for the 4th of July.  Click here to see more information.

3. Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia has more than just cheese steaks.  It is also the nation’s birthplace.  For Independence Day, there are tons of events such as free movie screenings, block parties, parades, and of course – excellent fireworks.  Get your cameras ready and take a look back at history in Philadelphia.    Click here for more information.

4. Baltimore, MD

It might be because I live in Baltimore, but I think there are so many great things to do here for the 4th of July!  Get a spectacular view of the fireworks from any angle, whether you’re up high in the World Trade Center or floating on a boat in the Inner Harbor.  Click here for more information.

5. Atlanta, GA

Georgia has so much going on – from road races to pub crawls, you’re sure to find something exciting  this holiday!  And once again, what would an independence day celebration be without the awesome display of pyrotechnics?  Click here for more information.
