Itching to take a road trip for 4th of July weekend but not sure where to go? Don’t worry. We got you. We put together four holiday-specific suggestions for you to enjoy with your Holiday Rambler. Check ‘em out!
Experience the biggest fireworks display in America Yes, you can see fireworks pretty much anywhere on the 4th. But if you want a major fireworks experience, you need to travel to the Big Apple for the annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks celebration. Everything we’ve read says it’s THE biggest fireworks showcase in the country, and it’s in one of the best destination cities ever. Win-win! Learn more
Visit the city where the Continental Congress declared independence If you’re looking for a little history with your 4th of July celebration, point your Holiday Rambler towards Philadelphia, PA. That’s where delegates from the original 13 colonies declared America’s independence from British rule, and where you can now tour many of the historic sites and landmarks connected to that epic moment, including Carpenters’ Hall (where the first Continental Congress met) and Declaration Hall (where Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence). Plus, it gives you a great reason to visit Philly in general. Read this to plan your trip
See the actual Declaration of Independence Why not celebrate America’s independence by reading the actual declaration of it? The National Archives in Washington D.C. is home to the original Declaration of Independence document, as well as other pivotal historical documents that shaped our nation. You’ll want to reserve tickets early, as it’s only open for a limited time each day. But your ticket gets in you into the rotunda as well as the connected galleries and vaults to explore an endless collection of relevant, historic documents. Learn more
Stay home because it’s one of if not THE biggest travel holidays of the year Here’s the thing: EVERYONE is taking a road trip during 4th of July weekend. Instead of scrambling for last-minute reservations and fighting massive crowds everywhere you go, park your Holiday Rambler in the driveway, fire up the grill, and enjoy a night under the fireworks from the luxury and comfort of your own (mobile) home.
