This 4th of July, we help you chase the best free public events (read: fireworks) in your area. If you’re like us, you’re itching to get out of town, but don’t want to miss out on the explosive festivities. Plus, you should never pay for fun Independence Day activities, since so many cities have amazing festivals for free. Instead of flying around the country—which is expensive and overcrowded—we’re taking short road trips in our own neck of the woods.
