We usually celebrate the 4th of July at the end of our street with a handful of neighbors and tons of good food.
We haven’t actually seen 4th of July fireworks in Maryland since Dude 1 was about two years old.
It’s the crowds -the parking, the traffic, it’s all just too much effort for a 15 minute show in the sky.
Although this year we are kinda feeling a new tradition.
Most of the kids on our street are older, some have even graduated from high school, and the block party flow we usually get up to is probably not going to happen this year.
So, we are on the hunt for other options.
If you too are looking for where to see fireworks in Maryland this 4th of July, here are some ideas.
