Boulder
Travel + Leisure named Boulder one of the five  “America's Best Towns for July 4th” two years in a row, so you know the mountain-backed town is worth the visit. Packed with fun patio restaurants, two dozen breweries, and a stone throw's away from unforgettable mountain trails, we can see why. Check out what to do with your off-time using Bon Appetit's city guide, but also catch the annual 4th of July highlights like Bands on the Bricks music festival, Boulder Farmers Market, and the Independence Day fireworks show that's been an annual tradition since 1941.
