The Fourth of July celebrates the signing of the Declaration of Independence, whose principles are cherished by democratic and progressive people everywhere. In the United States, we are blessed with abundant liberty and opportunity. Our pursuit of social justice inspires world leaders and influential thinkers and propels history forward.
No holiday brings together more people than the Fourth of July. Every city and most towns have big celebrations. Flags and red, white, and blue banners fill public places. Parades fill the streets and bands play patriotic music. Americans enjoy sports events and have family barbecues. Beach-goers stream to the shores and land-lovers gather for picnics at historic and scenic locations. Fireworks light up the evening skies. Independence Day deserves thoughtful analysis. Children take to this holiday with much enthusiasm. The Fourth of July is a day when adults can encourage children to learn about and participate in civic duties.
Tourism is popular on the Fourth of July. Tourists visit national monuments and historic places. Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., are popular destinations. These cities have buildings associated with the nation’s early history and dramatic events. The Declaration of Independence was adopted at Independence Hall, Philadelphia, and in 1787 the U.S. Constitution was written within its walls. Independence Hall offers tourists a wonderful destination to commemorate the birth of our nation.
Colorado, nicknamed the Centennial State, joined the nation as a full-fledged state in 1876, a hundred years after the signing of the Declaration. Rocky Mountain National Park is called America’s favorite playground. Tourists to the state’s capital, Denver, enjoy the city, which has antique shops selling souvenirs that make ideal gifts and are treasured collectibles.
American fine art, American folk art, portraits of the presidents, American antiques, American history books, stamps, maps, instruments, coins and medals, furniture, silverware, ceramics, textiles, quilts, jewelry, dolls, toys, mementos, and other items purchased for the holiday promote and instill national pride.
The popularity of the Fourth of July grows every year, and its far-flung celebrations take on a greater importance of what being a free and democratic nation means. Have a grand holiday!
