Denne artikel med forslag til de bedste steder at opleve 4. juli i USA er skrevet af MARTIN NIELSEN, der er et aktivt og værdsat medlem af GUIDE USA’s Facebook Gruppe, der bugner med USA rejsetips samt deling af rejseerfaringer fra over 9000 medlemmer.

Martin udtaler om sine egne oplevelser med 4. juli i USA:

“Jeg selv har været så heldig at opleve 4th of July af flere omgange, først i 2010 i Las Vegas, med et fantastisk koordineret fyrværkerishow foran Caesars Palace, til parader, BBQ og koncerter i San Antonio i 2012, inden jeg igen i 2017 vendte tilbage atter engang til Las Vegas, og oplevede det smukke fyrværkeri i symfoni fra toppen af Palms hotellet.

Independence Day er bare størst, når det kommer til fejring af den amerikanske drøm, og med denne artikel håber jeg at kunne hjælpe jer læsere til at finde den helt perfekte oplevelse. Derfor har jeg sat mig for at finde de bedste steder at fejre 4th of July, i alle 50 amerikanske stater anno 4. Juli, 2022.”

Martins oplevelse i San Antonio har han skrevet om her: Personlig blog fra San Antonio 2012

4. juli i USA - Det bedste sted i hver stat

“I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free”

Således skrev komponist og sanger Lee Greenwood tilbage i Maj, 1984.

En rørende hyldest til de amerikanske soldater, den nationale stolthed, og til det land, som vi her på siden elsker på kryds og tværs.

4th of July er en af årets største fejringer i USA, hvor uafhængighedsdagen fejres med pompt og pragt over hele landet, stort som småt.
