Jul 4, 2018

Ah the Fourth of July. The day when the land of the free becomes the land of the fireworks and home of the barbecues. While GoPro loves to travel, there is nothing that we like more than the beauty of our own backyard.

Check out our favorite shots from across the USA in honor of today.

Also, since we can’t tell you where (or where not) to put your fireworks, we can tell you where to put your GoPro, so we’ve also included some tips to help you up your content game this Fourth.
