Have I mentioned lately how much I love the 4th of July? It's definitely one of my favorite holidays. It's hot out, you're grilling, everyone is festive and you get to enjoy fireworks! Seriously, what's better than that?

Us Minnesotans have it pretty good, too! Minneapolis, MN was just named the 11th best city to celebrate Independence Day!


WalletHub recently compared 100 of the largest cities in the United States to create the list of the best for celebrating the summer holiday. Each city was judged on their average beer and wine prices, duration of firework shows and overall July weather forecast!

Atlanta, GA snagged the top spot on the list followed by San Francisco, CA and Buffalo, NY. Minneapolis just missed the top ten behind Seattle, WA.

By the way, if you didn't know...the 4th of July is next week already. But, you're from Minnesota, so you've probably been planning your Independence Day celebration for months now!
