New York City is apparently the best city in America for 4th of July celebrations.

According to a study from WalletHub based on celebrations, affordability and attractions and activities, NYC came out at number one. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

San Francisco, Chicago, Minneapolis and Atlanta rounded out the top five. Most interestedly, Washington, D.C., was all the way down at eighth.

WalletHub also reported that the National Retail Federation expects people in the USA to spend roughly $7.5 billion on the holiday. That’s a whole lot of money!

I hate to be the guy who has to defend Washington, D.C., because this city is truly trash, but if there’s one thing our nation’s capital does well, it’s celebrate the 4th of July.

In fact, I’d argue that it’s the one thing D.C. does better than the rest of the country.

Every 4th of July prior to coronavirus shutting the city down, we had great parades, fireworks, parties and people packed the area to celebrate the country’s birthday.

I’ve had the same routine for several years now. I get up nice and early with a shower beer, enjoy an all-American breakfast and then head on over to my buddy’s pool party.

It’s never failed me once.

So, while I’m sure NYC is fun, nothing touches D.C. when it comes to celebrating the 4th of July, and that’s just a fact.
