Top 4th of July Fireworks in U.S.A.

fire1

Every year, the 4th of July brings people together for hot dogs, cold beer and to celebrate the founding of the United States. No celebration would be complete though without an awesome fireworks show! That’s why the guys and gals down here at eimports4Less have put together our top five list of must see shows.

Number 1: Chicago. In my opinion, this is the best show on Earth. The Windy City is also my hometown…so maybe I’m a little biased! Watch the show from Navy Pier or Oak Street Beach.

Number 2 is New York City. Watch this show from the NJ side of the river for the best views and backdrop for your photos.

Number 3 is Philadelphia. This is one of the best shows in the country and for good reason…it is the birthplace of our nation after all! The show at Penn’s Landing is always great and you’re just steps from cold beers on South Street.

Number 4 is New Orleans. This city knows how to party and they go overboard for their July 4th celebration. The city puts on a great show over the Mississippi river starting a little after 9pm, so get to Woldenberg Riverfront Park early and find yourself a riverside seat. The live music and food trucks start at 4:30.

Number 5 is St Louis. This city does fireworks right…and that’s just the beginning! St Louis puts on a three day festival filled with live music, cold Budweiser air shows and a parade! Here’s a link to all the St Louis festivities:

Summer Time Check Up

06071906

Keep your ride rolling during the warmer months by giving it a quick once-over. The key to limiting your car being in and out of the shop is fixing potential issue before they become a problem. Here are a few tips that will hopefully keep your vehicle on the road:

Quick under the hood check:

06071909

When it’s hot out, everything wants to be a little cooler, same goes for your motor.  Once a month, do a quick check over of your engine bay.  The big 5 fluids include: oil, transmission, brake, power steering, and coolant.  Keeping these levels properly topped off will help your motor on long hot days. Getting in the habit of regularly opening up the hood gives you the opportunity to spot if something has gone askew.

Air Conditioning:

06071908

The air conditioning system in your vehicle is there to keep you and your passengers comfortable. Low and steady will help your body more-so that turning it on and off. While there is nothing wrong with enjoying the windows down and the fresh air, heat exhaustion is a risk on longer trips.

Staying hydrated:

Thirst can affect your driving ability in the same way as alcohol or a lousy night’s sleep.  When you do not keep hydrated, you’re more likely to make mistakes such as lane drifting and late breaking. These problems are compounded on longer drives, as well.

Road Trips

06071901

With summertime finally here, it’s time to take some time off.  The open road is a great place to reconnect and spend quality time together, or disconnect from everyday life and reground yourself. From short day trips to longer excursions, there are many reasons to get out and explore. Here are a few travel ideas:

Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park Virginia.

06071902

With 75 scenic vistas over its 105 miles from Front Royal south to I-64, Skyline drive can be done as a day trip. The Blue Ridge Mountains are the backdrop for this cruise, and is home to part of the Appalachian Trail. Some of the rock formations along this stretch date back over 1 billion years. Due to the topography of the area, a phenomenon known as “fog ocean” can occur, where the valley is covered in dense fog and some of the peaks poke above like tiny islands. This trip can be lengthened by picking up the Blue Ridge Parkway and ending in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina.

 

Overseas Highway, Miami to Key West Florida.

06071903

Dubbed “The Highway That Goes to the Sea”, the southern section of US Route 1 is best enjoyed over a long weekend. Connecting Miami and Key West, the Overseas Highway crosses 42 bridges. The roadway dates back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s and was originally a rail line.  The Overseas Highway follows along the only living coral reef in the continental United States, which spans over 170 miles. Be sure to soak in the sunsets at Mallory Square and visit mile marker 0. Key West is a major hub for cruise ships.

Pacific Coast Highway, California.

06071904

Just over 659 miles, the Pacific Coast Highway is a decent trip for five to seven days. Starting near Leggitt, the PCH runs thought the home of the largest trees on the planet.  Californian Redwoods can grow over 350 feet high, nearly 30 feet in diameter and live an estimated 1,200-1,800 years. The PCH’s course winds the coast and serves as major thoroughfare for several areas such as San Francisco, the Monterey Bay area and Los Angeles. The PCH ends at Dana Point in Orange County.

Great River Road, 10 states along the Mississippi River.

06071905

While not a single road, but a cooperative collection of roadways spanning 2,340 miles between Minnesota to Louisiana following the course of the Mississippi River.  While the distance can be Conquered in several days, this trip is best had over weeks time. With so much between the two, there are many points of interest and is sure to have something for everyone.

 

With an endless amount of possibilities, prudent planning is the best foundation for a memorable road trip. A few key necessities include a paper map, first aid kit and provisions for communication. A cell phone will suffice in most areas but more remote locations could do better with a 2 way radio or CB radio.  Additionally, keeping up with your vehicles maintenance and making sure it is up for the journey. No one wants to cut a trip short over something that could have been avoided
