Happy Fourth of July!!!

Washington DC is one of the best places to celebrate American Independence Day!

So put on your best American flag cap…

Ditch your American gas guzzler and jump into the Metro…

Grab some burgers from DC’s Matchbox

and stake out a patch of grass on the National Mall between 14th and Capitol to watch the greatest  tax-dollar-paid- fireworks display ever!

Happy 4th!

1. Where: National Mall- Fireworks launched at Lincoln Memorial and flies overhead Washington Memorial.

2. Time: Starts when it gets dark around 9:15pm.

3. Suggested: Stake our a seat early in the day! Better yet, make a day out of it and watch the Independence Day Parade:

  • Parade Start Time: 11:45 a.m.
  • Parade Route: Constitution Avenue and 7th to 17th Sts.

4. Getting there by Metro: Easiest way to get there. Parking is always rough in the District. Be green and take the metro to the Mall. Remember, the Smithsonian stop is closed on the 4th of July, but you can still get there by getting off at: Metro Center, Gallery Place-Chinatown, Judiciary Square, Federal Triangle and L’Enfant Plaza.
