BOSTON (TheStreet) -- Fourth of July festivities usually lead travelers down two routes: the obvious and the obscure. This is a good year for both.With major cities like Chicago cutting back on Fourth of July fireworks displays and Detroit and corporate partner Target ( TGT) holding fireworks any day but the fourth, holiday travelers are torn. Do they attend big-budget blowouts sponsored by Macy's ( M), Liberty Mutual or Bank of America ( BAC) with millions of their closest friends or smaller events that enjoy steady, if not always substantial or even stateside, support? With the patience of a station-wagon driver who's endured nearly 1,776 recitations of "are we there yet?" TheStreet has put together a list of familiar and far-flung festivities. Here are 10 Independence Day destinations that range from the nation's biggest birthday party to a friendly little picnic:
1. Washington, D.C.
2. New York
6. Rebild, Denmark
8. Austin, Texas
