Where to go, what to see and what to do in and around the Emerald City.

The Fourth of July commemorates the day we declared independence from Great Britain–all over America we celebrate with music, food, and fireworks.  It may fall on a Wednesday this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go out and have a good time.  Here are some of the best places in the Seattle area to check out the fireworks.

Where will you be when the Fourth of July sky starts booming?

The July 4th festivities that will commence this Monday afternoon/evening/night are a time-honored American tradition. Nothing quite says summer in the States like laying out a big blanket under the sun, flinging around a Frisbee and consuming exorbitant amounts of fried chicken, Waldorf salad and refreshing microbrew (or Miller High Life, if that’s your poison).
