Top 5 Family-Friendly Fourth of July Activities

The Fourth of July is a wonderful time for families to get together and celebrate. There are a wide variety of things to do for this holiday and there are several that are great family friendly activities.

Picnic Time

One of the first things that comes to mind for many people when they think about Fourth of July would be having a family picnic. With this, there are many options depending on what the family is looking to do. This can be a simple family picnic at home or can be a large community gathering where multiple families get to together.

Grand Fireworks

In addition to the picnic, seeing a fireworks display is often on the agenda. Depending on the area, there may be different options for fireworks viewing. Some locations may be free public events, while others may be private and require an admission fee. With most events, having lawn chairs or blankets for the family to sit on are ideal.

Surf, Sun and Fun

Since many families will have vacations or holiday time around this date, getting away is a great idea. The beach is a wonderful family getaway for the Fourth of July. Whether this is renting a beach house for several days or simply going to the beach for a day, children and families will always have a great time.

Rides, Games and More

Depending on the age of the children and the family, a trip to the amusement park is a great family activity. Many parks will have special promotions and activities for this holiday. There may even be a fireworks celebration. When taking a family trip to an amusement park, there are two main considerations that will make it more enjoyable. The first would be to get group tickets or family bundled tickets. This will often be the easiest and most economical way to have family members enjoying all of the rides and attractions. Secondly, the park should be one that is appropriate for every family member. This includes the youngest child and the adults as well.

The Great Outdoors

If looking for something on the more rustic side of things, a family camping trip for the holiday is a great idea. This can be as simple as pitching a tent in the backyard or can include a trip to a National Park in a large RV. To ensure a great time for all family members, there should be activities and options for entertainment for all of the children.

The Fourth of July is a great for families to spend time together. No matter what activity is chosen, the family will hopefully have a wonderful and memorable time.
