July 4th is rapidly approaching and you may still have time to grab a luxury break and really celebrate this special day. However, instead of opting for the usual choice of destinations you may like the idea of visiting somewhere different and taking the time to really appreciate the importance of Independence Day; even if it’s away from the usual crowds.
Of course, having a military discount will make the following deals even more attractive:
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
If you fancy the outdoors then this could be the place to go. Try a traditional horseback ride or simply slip on your hiking boots and march into the hills. You can even marvel at the military discount which gave you the opportunity to march on your own terms for a change!
A good place to aim fir is the luxury retreat of Amangani, where you’ll feel part of the American West and perhaps spend the most appreciative July 4th ever. The excellent firework display should help.
The Smokies, Tennessee

You can opt for luxury at the Ted Turner ranch or keep it simple with your own tent. To really appreciate the landscape you should take a hot air balloon ride where you’ll see the border to Mexico.
