There are few holidays that say “celebrate” more than the 4th of July. Good food and extravagant fireworks displays are hallmarks of Independence Day, and the atmosphere is jubilant. If you really want to do it up right this year, you can celebrate the 4th of July in style in a beach house rental.
A Cookout Without Compare at your Beach House
Any good 4th of July party includes grilling or picnicking. Independence Day is just not the same without hotdogs, hamburgers, and s’mores. If you are a Cookout King or Queen, you may think that nothing can improve your holiday spread—but that means you have never had a cookout on the beach. Your 4th of July beach house will likely come with a grill on a deck overlooking the water, which is the perfect backdrop for social food preparation. You can eat your 4th of July feast on the deck, or take some chairs or blankets down into the sand. You can’t beat the feeling of a having a hamburger in one hand, a glass of lemonade in the other, and your toes in the sand.
Rocket’s Red Glare Over the Beach
As evening falls, you can bank the fires of the grill and get ready for the most spectacular fireworks show of your life. Many beach homes for rent are within sight of a local fireworks display, and the view of these rockets exploding in the vast coastal sky and reflecting in the waves is unforgettable. If you check local regulations, you will likely find that personal fireworks are also allowed, and you can light up your own stretch of sand with your pick of pyrotechnics.
Beach House Bash
In your 4th of July beach house, you can host a house party without the inconvenience of using your own house—but you still have all the necessary components for a great bash. This means a kitchen for food prep and cold drinks, couches to lounge on, a stereo system for mood music, a patio for sitting under the stars, showers for rinsing off after a swim, enough bathrooms to go around, and a bed for everyone at the end of the night. And a beach home rental affords your guests experiences that they couldn’t get at your home—chiefly the delights of the beach. You can spend the weekend playing beach and water sports, or simply sunning yourself on the sand. You may even have a hot tub on the property, depending on which 4th of July beach rental you choose.
This Independence Day, gather your family and friends at a beach house for the ultimate summer celebration. It is sure to be a 4th of July you will never forget.
