Where to Go: Boston Harborfest
Boston, Massachusetts (nearby Best Western hotels)
Those looking to celebrate Independence Day in true patriotic fashion can revel in the festivities offered at the Boston Harborfest. This six-day celebration includes Revolutionary-era reenactments, concerts, historical tours and fireworks cruises in the famous harbor. To round out the celebration, attendees can sit down to a nice heaping bowl of chowder -- or two, or three -- at the Chowderfest.
How to Get There: 2011 Ford Mustang
The Ford Mustang is as American as apple pie, so why not drive to one of the biggest Independence Day parties around in something that screams red, white and blue? The new 2011 Mustang is available with an all-new fuel-efficient 305-horsepower V6 or a 5.0-liter 412-horsepower V8, Ford's revolutionary SYNC system and a 500-watt Shaker audio system so you can pop in your Lee Greenwood CD and let everyone know that you're "Proud to be an American."
