Celebrating July the Fourth is great fun in Newport Beach. Whether it's the Newport Harbor "Old Glory" Fourth of July Boat Parade–you just can't help but love all the patriotic boats and happy, smiling people celebrating our nation's birth–or the exciting fireworks at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort & Marina, sponsored by the City of Newport Beach, you will feel proud to be an American!  The family-friendly  events offered by Newport Dunes throughout the day also make for great fun. And, if surfing is a favorite sport of yours, the 2018 Vans US Open of Surfing is scheduled July 28 through August 5 at Huntington City Beach. The price is complimentary to see the sport's top surfers compete in the the world-renowned challenge.

Paul Revere with Old North Church in background on Boston's historic Freedom Trail

LONG BEFORE TOM BRADY’S WINNING TEAM BECAME SYNONYMOUS WITH BOSTON PATRIOTS, THIS CITY ON THE BANKS OF THE CHARLES RIVER WAS A HUB FOR MEN AND WOMEN OF ACTION. In 1630, Puritans established a foothold along the harbor and 150 years later the American Revolution was launched. Our country's history is wrapped up in this remarkable city along with newer additions, which only add to its fascinating attraction. If Paul Revere and his fellow patriots returned to Boston today, they would surely recognize many of the brick-lined streets and likely be grateful that the city’s focus on bold ideas endures.

Historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace, including Quincy Market and North and South Markets


Old State House in downtown Boston

History lives side by side with modern life in the city. One of the best ways to kick off a visit to Boston is to follow the Freedom Trail, a self-guided 2.5-mile walking tour that leads to important sites of the American Revolution, including the Old North Church and the Boston Common, the oldest city park in the country. Of course, the waterfront is what led the city to prominence. Boston Harbor looks very much as it did in 1773 when protestors threw crates of tea overboard in protestation against England’s taxation during what became known as the Boston Tea Party. Visitors can climb aboard 19th century ships and learn about the rebellion or take a harbor cruise. Visitors can also explore the small wooden home that belonged to Paul Revere and from where he launched his famous Midnight Ride in 1775, when he warned, “The British are coming,” saving Samuel Adams and John Hancock, among hundreds of others. Faneuil Hall has been a market since the 18th century, but it has also served as a political rallying spot. It’s here that the colonists established their creed, “no taxation without representation,” and George Washington celebrated America’s first birthday. Today, the market is home to kiosks selling everything from artisanal food to hand-crafted jewelry. It’s also a popular gathering spot to catch acrobats, magicians and other street performers. More recent history continues today as fans of the 1980s sitcom “Cheers” can make a pilgrimage to the Bull & Finch Pub, where the exterior, which has remained unchanged since filming, makes a perfect selfie backdrop. Inside, good pub grub and Cheers merchandise are for sale. CONTINUED >

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, housed in an early 20th century version of a Venetian palace

Newbury Street's milelong strip of designer clothing stores, five-star spas, prominent galleries and gourmet cafes

Boston’s important place in history fuels its reputation, but this city is in near constant evolution, thanks, in part, to its many universities, such as Harvard, MIT, Boston University and Boston College. It is also a significant art center, including the Isabella Steward Gardner Museum, which showcases Rembrandt, Matisse, and Whistler, as Boston's famous July Fourth Fireworks on the Charles River/Photo Kyle Klein

well as the Museum of Fine Arts and its half-million works, including Copley's classic portrait of Paul Revere. The city is also studded with quality art galleries and upscale stores and restaurants along iconic Newbury Street. If you are lucky enough to be in Boston on the Fourth of July, begin the day at the Old State House for a 10 a.m. reading of the Declaration of Independence in the very same spot it was read in 1776. By sunset, head to the Charles River, where a blaze of fireworks is accompanied by music from the Boston Pops.

KOOL & THE GANG AND THE VILLAGE PEOPLE, WEDNESDAY, JULY 18, 7:30 P.M.

For those of us who enjoyed our youth in the 1970s and 1980s, we have a great opportunity to reminisce while enjoying the funk and R&B rhythms from the iconic Kool & The Gang. The band was formed in 1964, adopting its current name in 1969. They are known for number one hits such as “Celebration,” “Get Down on It,” “Joanna,” “Cherish,” and their smash hit single, “Ladies Night.” The Village People are for those of us that like the more upbeat disco sound with its catchy tunes, suggestive lyrics and on-stage colorful costumes. The band has entertained audiences for generations with their hit singles “Macho Man,” “In the Navy,” “Go West,” and its biggest hit, “Y.M.C.A.”

Earth, Wind & Fire is one of the top-selling and most prolific musical groups of all time. They have produced 23 albums since they were formed in 1969. With titles such as “Devotion,” “Let’s Groove,” “Boogie Wonderland,” “After the Love Has Gone,” “Got to Get You Into My Life” and “Shining Star,” they have been entertaining audiences for five decades. Maurice White, the band’s founder, composer and producer, stated, “I wanted to create a library of music that would stand the test of time. ‘Cosmic Consciousness’ is the key component of our work. Expanding awareness and uplifting spirits is so important in this day. I hope our music can give them some encouragement and peace.” Don’t miss their magical performance that evening.

Royal Hen: A Local Seaside Gem THE FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE AND QUALITY LIBATIONS AND CUISINE MAKES IT A LOCAL FAVORITE ARTICLE JESSICA ROY

THE ROYAL HEN, NESTLED INTO THE IDYLLIC VILLAGE-ESQUE LOCATION ON BALBOA ISLAND, OFFERS VIVID RED IRON GATES THAT DRAW YOU INTO A STYLISH BISTRO-LIKE SPACE THAT HAS THE FEEL OF A CLASSIC ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE. A perfect spot for a night out, Royal Hen greets you with hospitality and welcoming service as soon as you walk through the door. Owned by a doctor and operated by “Boss Hen” Cynthia Shafer on a daily basis, the concept and vision of the restaurant is simple: “We provide excellent quality food and unique wines in a casual, comfortable atmosphere. Our customers become our friends and return time and time again,” Shafer says. Their hard-to-find selection of esoteric grower-to-producer California and French wines is truly special and shines through their offerings. If you are in the mood for a cocktail, the Hen has distinct signatures. Head bartender Nat Weaver has a true passion for his craft and stands by his philosophy of “European style libations with an American flair utilizing fortified wines and handmade cordials.” The food at Royal Hen reflects a worldly past with European, Mexican, and Asian influences. One inspired dish in particular on the menu is the prosciutto-wrapped asparagus. “This dish was inspired by the years I lived in Europe,” Shafer says. “We would go to the fields and pick asparagus, go to the butcher and get freshly sliced prosciutto, and then go to the baker and get freshly baked bread.” Royal Hen's Main Bistro/ Photo Royal Hen

When visiting Royal Hen, expect to hear staff calling and remembering guests by name, taste exceptional wines and enjoy an exciting modernized version of creative pub-style food.

ONLY YOU

CAN PREVENT RATTLESNAKE BITES! 7 Easy tips to be aware to keep your pups happy and healthy! 1. While out walking, controlling your dog with a leash may be your best safety device.

6. Off-trail hiking with an unleashed dog may stir up a snake and you may be as likely a victim as your dog.

2. Do not allow your dog to explore holes in the ground or dig under logs, flat rocks or planks.

7. If your dog seems unusually curious about “something” hidden in the grass, back off immediately until you know what it is.

3. Stay on open paths where there is an opportunity for snakes to be visible. 4. Keep nighttime walks to a minimum: rattlesnakes are nocturnal most of the year. 5. If you hear a rattlesnake, keep your dog at your side until you locate the snake: then move away.
