4th of July in Philly!

Independence day conceptHappy Birthday, America! Spending the 4th of July in Philly is the way to go and there are so many ways to celebrate this weekend, it can be a little bit overwhelming. So whether it's fireworks that rock your world, or you prefer something low-key on your yoga mat, we've rounded up some activities by neighborhood to make it easy-breezy.

Whatever you do, have fun, be safe, and Happy 4th from the Somers Team!

To start, there will be fireworks, and who doesn't love that? Here's a handy fireworks map from Visit Philly that shows when and where to get your fireworks action, from Penn Treaty Park and Sugarhouse Casino in Fishtown all the way to South Philly's best viewing spots. The fireworks kick off tonight with Wawa Welcome America's Philadelphia Orchestra Neighborhood Concert at Penn's Landing.

Here's the forecast for the weekend. Let's hope for the best!

Now, for a few alternatives.

Old City: History buffs and hoagie lovers should head to the All-American Celebration on the Mall and Wawa Hoagie Day. And don't miss the annual Independence Day Parade from 5th & Chestnut to Front & Market Streets.

Northern Liberties/Fishtown: Escape the Center City and Old City crowds for the 4th of July Jam at the Piazza with headliners the Roots. Or kick back with some brews at Yards Country & 'Cue Celebration for beer, food truck grub, live music, and brewery tours.

Center City/Art Museum: How about some yoga followed by beer? Join Maha Yoga's Jake for Brewmaha, a fun class that ends with beer tasting from Dock Street Brewery on the 3rd. Something more traditional? It's an all day Party on the Parkway on the 4th.
