With the arrival of summer brings the planning of Fourth of July celebrations with family and friends. Independence day is the perfect day to celebrate the freedom we have here in America. What better place to commemorate Independence Day than in the Nation’s capital enjoying food, festivals and fireworks.
There are no shortage of ways to celebrate America’s independence from the British in Washington D.C. From the Smithsonian Folklife Festival to the special programming at the National Archives celebrating the signing of the Declaration of Independence there is plenty around the city that will fill up your day. To cap off your plans we know a very popular spot is the Fourth of July fireworks on the National Mall. Shot from the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, the fireworks light up Washington D.C. while creating a fun and festive atmosphere for families and friends to enjoy.
While you’re wandering the Nation’s Capital exploring, we here at Ristorante La Perla will be open and ready to offer unique Italian cuisine. Decide to visit the Smithsonian Folklife Festival to enjoy some live music and dance performances with the family during the day? After the festival finishes stop in at La Perla to fill up on some authentic Italian recipes like our Linguini Vittorio or Vitello Marsala. Fill your stomach’s before heading over to the National Mall to reserve a great seat for the Fourth of July fireworks beginning around 9:15 p.m.
Looking to make a date out of the Fourth of July? Start the day off by visiting the Independence Day Parade on Constitution Avenue beginning at 11:45 a.m. After the parade enjoy the view and beautiful water fountains at Georgetown Waterfront Park before a nice romantic dinner at Ristorante La Perla. Partake in some delicious wine from our extensive wine menu paired with the perfect dish to satisfy your tastebuds. Following dinner take a stroll across town to the National Mall to watch the Fourth of July Fireworks show to end the perfect date day.
