5 things to do this Independence Day

Party like it's 1776!

If you don't have any set plans for 4th of July yet, don't worry, we're here to help. Any of these ideas will lead to a grand old time, celebrating the grand old flag.

1. Have a BBQ

Hotdogs, and hamburgers, and corn on the cob...oh my! Gather round with family or friends and cook up some food. If you need recipe advice or a last-minute playlist to make your party complete, we've got you covered.

2. Head to a lake or river

There is no better way to celebrate your freedom than laying out by the water and enjoying the sun. You can spend a whole day at the water and not even realize it. Bring along a book, some headphones, and friends and you'll be occupied all day long!

3. Volunteer

Celebrate the great country that is America by giving back to her. Whether it be at a soup kitchen helping feed the hungry, or helping animals find a home, get out there and help!

4. Have a chill day

Celebrating isn't for everyone, and there's nothing wrong with that! Netflix has released so many great movies recently. You can spend your day in bed or on the couch catching up on the newest movies and shows. You can make it a binge-watching party, or just do it solo. Either way, if you feel like you should make it LOOK like you were doing something on social media, that's what stock photos are for.

5. Watch the fireworks

No matter what you plan to do during the day, you should end your day with the fireworks. I'm not sure what it is about watching charcoal and sulfur shoot up into the air and explode into color, but sign me up. My personal favorite is the kind that shoots up and then slowly falls down into the sky, like a weeping willow.
