Watching the stunning red, white, and blue colors of fireworks explode in the night sky is a sight that we all look forward to on July 4th. From stars and stripes to every shape and pattern in between, nothing is more breathtaking than seeing these sparklers light up the sky, then fall gently to the water below as patriotic music plays in the background.
If you want to start your 4th of July celebration off with a bang, why not consider packing up the family for a dazzling pyrotechnic display in Rock Hall, MD? This waterfront town in Kent County, Maryland, called the “Pearl of the Chesapeake” is a true jewel to its residents. The laid-back charm of this town inspires visitors and locals alike to explore the serene nature preserves, walking and biking trails, and the wonderful Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge. With the inviting waters of the Chesapeake beckoning the adventuresome types, kayaking and canoeing excursions are also highly recommended.
