In the USA, July is the apex of the frenzy that is summer. Vacations are in full swing, and life is good.
The 4th of July (our Independence Day) kick-starts the month with parades, barbecues, picnics, family reunions, baseball games, and sunburns.
Holiday fireworks give pyromaniacs the opportunity to start all kinds of trouble, and there’s still enough summer left that no one even thinks about the fun coming to an end.
In honor of this All-American month we’re featuring our “Slice of Americana Series” – from the West, to the Heartland, to the East. We’ll start with our country’s newest members, Hawaii and Alaska, then move on to the states in the Pacific Northwest and across the country, hopscotching our way across the nation. From bears and buffalos to wigwams and weathervanes, we’ll share snapshots of this country we love. And on Saturdays we’ll give you lots of juicy links to some great bloggers and their stories about destinations in the USA. It should be a hot month!
See you there!
