For many of us, July 4 is a day we are out and about, heading to the beach, having cookouts with family and friends, celebrating independence.

But for 2020, those activities are likely to be curtailed.

Beaches are closed in some areas and it may not be the time to have a crowd at your home. For those who enjoy a meal in a restaurant, options may be limited.

While some restaurants are open on July 4 with limited seating, many are not. Restaurants that have stayed open during the pandemic, offering takeout and delivery services, will continue to do so this weekend and many are offering special deals for July 4th.

Note: Not every restaurant in a chain may be honoring the deals, so be sure to check with local restaurants to confirm which deals are available before you go.


New York City will reopen 100% on July 1, Mayor Bill de Blasio says

New York City will fully reopen starting July 1, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday.

"We are ready for stores to open, for businesses to open, offices, theaters, full strength," de Blasio said in announcing the date on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

It's the first time the city will be fully reopen in more than a year. The first shutdown began March 2020 when the city became the U.S. epicenter in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he would like to see the city reopen before the date pitched by de Blasio. "I don't want to wait that long. I think if we do what we have to do we can reopen earlier," Cuomo said, according to NBC New York.

Restaurants, gyms, shops, hair salons and arenas will open at full capacity. Smaller theaters could reopen over the summer and Broadway is on track for opening by September. Schools will be back at "full strength" in the fall.

New York City has recorded 923,953 coronavirus cases and 32,461 virus-related deaths as of Wednesday.

Also of Wednesday, more than 6 million doses of Covid vaccines have been administered in the city, and about 36% of its adult population is fully vaccinated, according to city data. More than half the city's adult population has received at least one dose.

"What we're seeing is that people have gotten vaccinated at extraordinary numbers," de Blasio said. "This is going to be the summer of New York City. I think people are going to flock to New York City because they want to live again."

It wasn't immediately clear whether mask mandates will stay in place through the summer.

On Wednesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that the state will lift dining curfews statewide and a ban on bar seating in the city starting in May. Seating at bars will be allowed in New York City starting May 3, while outdoor dining curfews of midnight are set to end by May 17. Indoor dining curfews will expire May 31.

Freedom Trail

For the average Bostonian, life in the New England colonies during the 17th century was, as you might’ve guessed, not exactly one of ease and leisure. Before they were built by stone or brick masonry, homes were small, dank, drafty and made entirely of wood. This building practice was abolished toward the advent of the 1700s due to the susceptibility of fire. Most of the population subsisted as farmers, the drinking water was unsafe, medicine was still in the Dark Ages, and the average lifespan was just shy of 40 years. These were arduous and challenging times and living under the yoke of an oppressive foreign monarchy would eventually prove too much to bear and, thus, a revolution was born. Comprised of 16 places of interest, each one a milestone in the evolution of Boston from English colony to independence, the Freedom Trail is an essential component of any trip to Boston. This historic attraction literally lays out Boston’s colonial history before you on the very streets where the city’s most transformative events unfolded several hundred years ago.


What Stores Are Open on the 4th of July 2020?

Unexpectedly ran low on ketchup at the 4th of July cookout? Here's where to go.

Fire up the grill and bust out everything red, white, and blue you can get your hands on&mdashit&rsquos officially America&rsquos birthday! There&rsquos so much to celebrate during the 4th of July, first and foremost being our nation&rsquos hard-earned independence. The patriotic occasion also marks a much-needed day off from work to relax with family and friends, an opportunity to show off some good old American pride with patriotic quotes (and brush up on proper American flag etiquette), and time to (hopefully!) soak up some Vitamin D in the great outdoors.

But no matter how you&rsquore spending the long-awaited summer event this year, you might (unfortunately) find yourself in need of a last-minute necessity on the holiday itself. Perhaps an item on your grocery store shopping list somehow fell through the cracks, and you&rsquore now missing the key ingredient to your grilling barbecue side dish. Maybe you&rsquore even trying your hand at a few new 4th of July crafts to decorate your home, but the hot glue gun&rsquos impossible to track down. Or, you might have squeezed the last few drops out of your sunscreen bottle and need to stock up before you hit the pool.

Whatever the case, as with every federal holiday, it's always a guessing game of which nearby convenience stores and supermarkets will be accessible, should you need to make a quick errand run. Never fear, though&mdashyou won't be left completely in the dust this year.
This year, prepare to party in the U.S.A. this July 4 with everything you could ever need, thanks to spots like Target, Kroger, Walmart, and more. Not seeing some of your local favorites on the list? Check back here for more store updates as the holiday draws closer. (Also, here are the restaurants open on July 4.)
