Fourth of July is all about family fun. In our latest A-Z #welltraveledfamily challenge in F is for Festivals, we shared how much we love to explore festivals. When we travel as a family in the towns we visit, we get a sense of the local culture and people. It doesn’t get more festive and family friendly than a festival to celebrate our country’s Independence. So grab your red, white and blue and check out some of these favorite family Fourth of July celebrations across the country!
