When we think of the 4th of July, we think of long weekends spent grilling outdoors, enjoying leisurely evening picnics under fireworks displays, and digging our feet in the sand to perfect our summer tans. But with Independence Day falling in the middle of the week this year, and temperatures expected in the high 80’s, it can be hard to justify tackling the traffic that AAA predicts will be the worst of the year. We think perfect solution is a 4th of July staycation. Below are some of our favorite ideas for celebrating indoors. Grab a cocktail, tune the TV into the local fireworks, sit back and relax to the hum of your air conditioning.
