July 4 is Wednesday — which makes it hard to take a long weekend and get out of town for Independence Day. But you can feel like you’re on vacation when you celebrate America’s birthday on Lake Erie.
Looking for some nautical spots to watch the fireworks? Or maybe a red, white and blue parade? Here are events on Ohio’s lakeshore, from Put-in-Bay to Fairport Harbor.
