If you haven’t made plans for the weekend, it isn’t too late to snag a great last-minute deal and partake in a slightly adventurous getaway. This 4th of July, our president, Henrik Kjellberg, suggests exploring off-the-beaten-path destinations like Oakland or Lake Tahoe. From Oakland, “the drive along Highway 1 is stunning, especially in the summer months. And there are lots of great July Fourth activities in towns along the way, not to mention amazing hiking opportunities,” he says. If you make the trip to Lake Tahoe, you won’t be disappointed by the impressive Lights on the Lake fireworks display.
