∇ Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
What better place is there to celebrate July 4th than in the city where our country was born? Fourth of July festivities run from 5-11 pm and include a parade through the historic city center and a concert on the Parkway. To finish off the day, the city’s fireworks are displayed over the Philadelphia Museum of Art. And if you’re looking for somewhere to eat do not just go right for the cheesesteaks. Even though this is a quintessential Philadelphian food, the city is serving up way more than just cheesesteaks. Check out Ant Pants Cafe, they are the reason Philadelphians love brunch. You must indulge in The Bacon Stack: a tower of bacon, tomato, and arugula with a sunny side up egg to top off it off!
