I think tomorrow after work I'll be heading home and relaxing on the back deck and watching the fireworks from there. Fireworks are everyone's favorite part of July 4th and in South Philly they are EVERYWHERE! I don't need to wade through the crowd to get a good show. If you are brave enough there is always the Art Museum Firework show just make sure you take a cooler and stake out a spot extra early because it is an absolute madhouse out there each year.
Please everyone have loads of fun whether you are staying in the city, heading to the burbs, or taking it to the beach. And above all be careful and responsible.
Happy Independence Day!!
