Anyone who knows me, knows that I love ALL the Holidays. I love any excuse to dress for a theme, spend time with my friends and family, eat food that’s bad for me (but oh so good), and give or receive gifts. And Independence Day is no exception! Last year was my first July 4th with my boyfriend Lucas. Even though it was raining outside, we snuggled up on his roof in Bushwick and watched his neighbors fireworks while eating gummy worms.
In a city like New York, there are no shortages of fun things to do on the Fourth of July. Here are just a few ideas to get your Independence Day plans started.
No matter what you do for America’s Independence Day, we hope you’ll share with us your photos and stories! And don’t forget to wear sunscreen.
