Independence Day is just around the corner, and this one is a biggie: America will be turning 240 years old (even though she doesn’t look a day over 150!) In the good old United States, you can’t throw a cowboy hat without hitting a barbecue, fireworks display, or other celebration — but in the rest of the world it’s not so easy.
Thankfully, ex-pats everywhere have joined together to throw a few big bashes, and we rounded up some of the best ones. Don’t see a get-together in your corner of the world? When in doubt, just check your local American embassy’s website, Facebook, or Twitter pages for embassy-hosted shindigs.
Please note, the dates of these various events are July 4th, unless otherwise noted. Visit the links provided for more details.
So, without further ado, here are 8 places to live the American dream around the world this 4th of July.
