I’ve seen firework displays all over the country; but nothing beats the show on the National Mall. Make it easy on yourself and your wallet this Fourth of July and score one of Kimpton Hotel’s cheap rates during the 72 hour “Red, White and Boom” sale which begins at midnight (Thursday, June 21st 12:00 a.m.). Rates start at only $109 at their D.C. hotels* and many are within walking distance of the Mall. My pick is the Hotel George which is close to Union Station and has Bistro Bis, a first rate spot for easy French fare and tasty bloody maries.

*Hotels in Arlington and Alexandria are participating and have easy access to D.C. The Hotel Monaco in Baltimore is also available if you’d rather see your pyrotechnics over the Inner Harbor.
