Happy Friday everyone! It’s arguably the greatest weekend of the year. This weekend we will celebrate Independence Day and I for one could not be more excited! Unfortunately this year it lands on a Monday so that means fireworks and celebrations will be spread out throughout the weekend! But that also means if you can hang you can have a weekend full of celebration. Especially with the eastern shore having so many amazing little towns and cities all doing their own thing. With just a little travel in each direction you can see some amazing fireworks throughout Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. It’s supposed to be a sunny weekend with temps in the low 90’s and no rain in sight so hopefully you’re ready to get out there and have some fun! If you are hosting or going to a party make sure to check out my past posts about the best food and games to have at a cookout! But if you’re looking to find somewhere to go and watch some fireworks then continue to read below and I’ll go over some of the best options I’ve found.
