The best place to watch fireworks on America’s birthday is on the water. So why not do it? Outdoor Adventures will be traveling down to Mobile Bay to make it happen. Every year the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park puts on a spectacular fireworks display and we will have the best seat in the house to watch it on.
