Of all the meals Americans take to mark Independence Day, hot dogs top the list. The 4th of July can never be fun unless hot dogs grace the dining table. The best part about hot dogs is they are easy to make. If you have no time to prepare, we recommend ordering takeout from Star’s Drive-In or Pink’s Hot Dogs.

If you are a lover of nature, a backyard camping experience can make your July 4th weekend worth your time and effort. Assuming you have been booking camping trips in the previous years, it makes perfect sense that you would set up a tent in your backyard. Start with preparing a wonderful meal for your family. Then, get prepared to watch fireworks fill the air while lying in your sleeping bag. 

Create the perfect outdoor movie theater

Independence Day is all about patriotism. Now that the summer season is here, it is the ideal time to set up an outdoor movie theater. Choose from films like Miracle, Independence Day, or Dandy. Like any other movie setting, all you need is popcorn, a cozy chair, and your loved ones.
