Happy 234th Birthday, America! (Psst, we don't think you look a year older than 230.) If you have your red, white, and blue outfit all coordinated, your miniature flag at the ready for waving, and nowhere to take that irrepressible American spirit, you might want to take a look at our pretty darn spectacular list of 4th of July Events that has all the pool parties, BBQs, fireworks shows, parades, and hootenannies you might be yearning for. Whatever you decide to do today, Angelenos, be safe, designate a driver, surf with caution, and have fun.
