Nobody does Fourth of July fireworks quite like tha nation's capital. Thousands gather each Independence Day to take in a one-of-a-kind spectacle with the Washington Monument and the Capitol Building providing a stunning backdrop.
Organized by the National Parks Service, the annual display culminates a day-long celebration dubbed as "America's Biggest Birthday Party."
Some of the best spots to take in the fireworks include the US Marine Corps War Memorial and several points along the Mount Vernon Trail. Priceir options include taking a fireworks cruise along the Potomac River.
