Every year, I find myself scrambling at the last-minute to plan a fun Fourth of July gathering to celebrate with friends. If you're anything like me, and are totally stressing trying to figure out what you and your crew can do on this upcoming Independence Day, here are six last-minute Fourth of July getaways 2019 you should definitely consider.
The best part of this list? All of these destinations are by the beach, so you can soak up the sun, splash in the waves, stream a chill playlist, and maybe get a little picnic (and some day drinking if you're 21 or older) in before you catch the fireworks at night. From Long Beach Peninsula, Washington, to Montauk, New York, you and your crew can catch a flight or a train (or even rent a car and hit the road) to one of these spots for the best kind of July 4 celebration.
Make sure you pack your favorite swimsuits, sunnies, extra sunscreen, and a Polaroid camera to document it all. Oh, and don't forget to pick up sparklers when you get there. You'll have the absolute best time and make unforgettable memories with your favorite people by your side.
