July 4th, Independence Day, is just around the corner and there are some fun things going on in Raleigh. Many travel this time of year for the holiday and are at the beach. This year with Independence Day being on a Tuesday, it might not be so easy for some and work out to travel. No worries there because there is plenty to do right here in town.
