Boston 4th of July Overview

More than 200 years ago, a wise American predicted that his country’s Independence Day would forever be celebrated with “pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports… bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”  

That man was none other than Founding Father John Adams, who guessed that America’s most patriotic holiday would land on July 2, when revisions of the Declaration of Independence were completed. Though he was two days off, Adams should be commended for a dead-on rumination of future July 4 events.

There’s arguably no better place to celebrate Independence Day in 2018 than Boston, birthplace of the American Revolution. Beantown offers a healthy offering of red, white, and blue Fourth of July parties like the scenic Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, which can be taken in anywhere along the beautiful Charles River.  

Before looking to the sky to see the rockets’ red glare, Bostonians can take a stroll along the aptly named Freedom Trail, which whisks them past historic American venues like the Boston Common, Faneuil Hall, and the Paul Revere House. Along the way, thirsty patriots can stop off at bars oozing Americana – like Bell in Hand Tavern – for a Samuel Adams.

Chock-full of Fourth of July celebrations, bars, and parties, Boston gives the nation’s capital a run for its money on Independence Day 2018.
