Celebrate America’s Birthday in the Last Best Place: Montana. The city of Billings does not hold back one bit on Fourth of July weekend.

From the amazing local food that includes everything from brats to root beer floats, live music at Castlerock Park, and of course, the ceremonial fireworks display which can be seen from practically anywhere in town.

But rather than fight for a place to park near most of the hectic action, where is your favorite place in Billings to pick a plot, plop down and relax on a blanket for a perfect view of the fireworks? Do you have a secret place away from all the crowds to enjoy Independence Day? We are curious and would love to know where you like to enjoy the holiday with your friends and family.

Have you found a somewhat not-so-well-known area in the city that is the best place to see the big show under the Big Sky? Maybe on top of a local area building? Billings International Airport? High atop the Crowne Plaza?

Let us know in the comments below! It's the patriotic thing to do.

Happy Fourth of July, Billings!
