    If I were coming from the UK and wanting to experience the 4th of July, I would probably head for New York City, New York or Washington, D.C. I'm sure there are many other wonderful places, but New York City really knows how to hold celebrations. They have great fireworks displays and great New Year's Eve celebrations. T.here is probably more history in Washington, D.C. or Boston On a personal side, I no longer attend fireworks live, I prefer to watch them on television. Columbus, Ohio holds fireworks on the 4th of July along with activities for families all day long. Their fireworks are called, "Red, White and Boom". It all depends on whether you want the big city experience or would rather go to a small town for their celebrations. Smaller fireworks and a smaller town experience can be just as rewarding. If you are going with friends, go along with them, wherever they are going and share the experience. If you hate large crowds and heavy traffic, watch it on television and keep changing the channels to see what all is happening in different cities. I hope you have success in making your decision, and welcome to the USA.

    I have spent a lot of time in Oxford and have stayed in both of these hotels. You can't go wrong with either. Location is the main difference. The Downtown Oxford Inn is just a block off the Square, which is the main hub of restaurants, shops, and bars. You can also walk into the campus from here, but it is a longer walk. The Inn at Ole Miss is on the campus, and is right off the Grove, the central tail-gating spot on football weekends. When it's not a football weekend, the Grove is a park-like spot that's perfect for walking in or a picnic. You can walk to the Square from here, but it is a longer walk. The main thing, no matter which you decide on, is to book early. Both of these hotels are surely already filled for football weekends and other special events. But it's worth giving them a call to get on a wait list. Or, if you're going on an "off" weekend, then you're sure to get a room and enjoy a fabulous weekend in charming Oxford. Go Rebels!

    Amtrak is very expensive. I would recommend renting a car. Since you are alone, you can get an eco car from Budget rent a car for super cheap. You can drop it off at a different location. Gas in America is much cheaper than Europe. It ranges around 3-4 US dollars per gallon. If you want a genuine American experience stay away from the big cities. Locals are very friendly. City people are generally rude and in a hurry. There are so many routes you could take. I would recommend seeing Florida's white sand beaches on the Gulf coast, Tennessee, Colorado Rocky Mountains (Particularly the west area of Colorado from Durango to Ouray on US hwy 550, also known as the million dollar highway), California's Giant Sequoia trees. Get a National Park Pass and look at all the national parks. Then visit the ones that interest you. Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park are also gorgeous. Personally I would avoid Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama. Ugh.
