It is that time of year when you have to discern whether it is fireworks or something more sinister.

In my research of finding the best place to view the beautiful firework displays, WalletHub came across my searches.

The website put together a list of the 2022's Best and Worst Places in the country to celebrate the Fourth of July. According to WalletHub, Detriot (the whole of Michigan) is only #65 out of 100 on the list.

I shall not stand the blasphemy. I will not let them take the joy of fireworks away from Michigan. Here is how you can watch fireworks every single day leading up to the national holiday.
