A few years ago my father-in-law came for a visit, and flew home from Dulles on the Fourth of July. After dropping him off, as we drove home, we must have driven past at least ten fireworks displays! It was great!
The wonderful thing about living in this part of the country is the choices we have when it comes to celebrating the Fourth. You can go small town, or you can go BIG town. It's all up to you.
Here are some sites to consider (Just click them. They are links):
