Who's ready for a spectacular show in the sky?

Before you know it, Fourth of July will be here. To me, this holiday is the halfway point for summer which makes it feel like this season is flying by. Don't let our nation's holiday sneak up on you and start putting some plans together now. Some things to think about include company, food, and even location.

Recently, Travel and Leisure compiled a list of the Best Fourth of July Fireworks in Every State. They looked at stunning displays from sea to shining sea to create this list. So where should be be headed in Louisiana?

New Orleans.

According to Travel and Leisure, the Big Easy is ranked among the best when it comes to celebrating our nation's independence. Louisiana knows how to party and New Orleans' Go 4th on the River has throwing a red, white and blue party for nearly 30 years. Plus, the annual Essence Festival is held during the holiday weekend which means there will be plenty of celebrities in town.
