Be in a Boston hostel for Independence Day
Independence Day kicks off in the US next month, so why not visit the country and celebrate it with them on July 4th?

People might like to book a hostel in Boston and check out Boston Harborfest 2010, which features a range of activities to celebrate the biggest day in the US calendar.

The event - which is currently in its 29th year - takes place in and around Boston City Hall and the extravaganza now features more than 200 things to do, compared to the 35 it used to have when it first started out.

Those who want to catch all of the celebrations might like to note they go on until July 5th, so it could be a good idea to reserve an extra night in a Boston hostel.

Sticking around until the final day could be worthwhile because of the 29th annual Chowderfest. Individuals who want to taste a bit of the US might love to indulge in some of the delicacies from an array of New England's best restaurants. It takes place between 11:00 and 18:00 local time on the Plaza at City Hall.

Moreover, the festival aims to "honour and remember the past, celebrate the present and educate the future with re-enactments, concerts, historical tours and much, much more", according to its website.

But people planning on visiting the city on August 3rd might like to check out The Black Eyed Peas, who are set to perform at the TD Garden arena. Tickets are currently still on sale for the gig.
