Independence Day has arrived! If you chose to stay close to home for the holiday weekend, there are still many possible was to spend your day. For those of you who have not yet finalized your plans for the Fourth of July, here are some ideas that will make for a fun holiday, but will not break the bank.

1. BBQ with friends and family.

Tye-dye a shirt or sew stars and stripes on an old pair of shorts to wear out on the fourth.

3. Enjoy America's pastime.

Since most people spend their day at family gatherings, you can find discounted MLB tickets. So, you could catch a baseball game for half the price. Just try to avoid costly food while you're there!

4. Go camping.

Take your family to local campgrounds or even in your own backyard, pitch a tent, or a camper, and enjoy your weekend outdoors.

5. Go out on the lake or river.

If you do not have a boat or know someone with one, you can take kayaks or paddle boards out on the water.

6. Watch your local firework display.

Sit up some lawn chairs and enjoy a firework display, free of charge, to celebrate your freedom.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Fourth of July! God bless the USA.

XO & best wishes,
