ATLANTApix: Happy 4th of July, America!

Atlanta has so many incredible options for celebrating the Fourth of July, America's Independence Day. 

From post-game fireworks at Turner Field, fireworks in Centennial Olympic Park, fireworks at Lenox Square, and fireworks at Stone Mountain Park, Atlanta will be sparkling for a great deal of the evening.

There are lots of fireworks observation parties too, including Georgia Aquarium, the Sundial atop the Westin Peachtree Plaza, and a rooftop pool party at Melia Hotel in Midtown featuring DJ Vicki Powell.

Another option for recognizing this national holiday, of the historical exploration sort, is a tour of the Georgia State Capitol, where a portrait of George Washington hangs in the towering rotunda (photo). The free Capitol tours are closed on the July 4th, but resume the following business day.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
