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 Colorado?

Denver.

According to Travel and Leisure, Denver goes all out with a two-day celebration on the 3rd and 4th, and yes there are lights in the sky both nights. The Independence Eve Celebration takes place at Civic Center Park with a concert and fireworks. On the actual fourth of July, the fireworks are held at Elitch Gardens Theme and Water Park.
