Single on the 4th of July this year? Don’t worry about it! You can still have a great time celebrating and we’re here to show you how.
Get away from it all
The 4th of July weekend is the perfect time to get away for a few days. If you don’t have plans yet, why not grab your BFFs and set off on a long weekend road trip? Book some rooms at a motel or bed and breakfast, pack up the car with great tunes, cold drinks and your GPS and have a blast on the open road. Whether you make it a weeklong adventure or simply a few days away from the city, a 4th of July trip is a great way to enjoy the weekend.
Have a movie marathon
Gather up all of your favorite cheesy, funny or must-watch movies, stock the fridge with your favorite treats and invite a few friends over for a 4th of July movie marathon. Add to the fun with movie trivia, dish on the latest Hollywood gossip and create some fun cocktails based around your movies of choice. Movie nights are a great option for anyone who isn’t into big parties or who wants to save some money this summer.
Host a singles soiree
Not everyone is attached. If you’ve got a few friends, co-workers and family members currently sans significant other, we suggest getting them all together for an unforgettable 4th of July bash. Get on Facebook or send some emails and invite everyone over for some burgers, hot dogs, beer and lemonade. Have some games on hand (bocce ball, horseshoes) and play in your yard if you have one, or head to the closest park after dinner to get competitive. Having fun on the 4th doesn’t require a boyfriend or girlfriend — all you need are good friends, good food and good music. Bonus: Maybe some of those singles will find a love match!
Plan a patriotic potluck
Even if you don’t feel like cooking for a crowd, you can still host a great party — just make it a potluck. Whether you invite family, friends or everyone who’s in town without plans, all you need to do is choose a theme (Mexican fiesta, Hawaiian luau) and ask everyone to bring something that relates to your chosen culinary theme. Supply fun (themed) decorations and drinks and get ready to have a relaxed, but fabulous 4th of July soiree.
