The 4th of July is right around the corner and, for many places around the country, the standard outdoor festivities just aren't an option. Not because of rain or storms, but purely because of record-setting high temperatures. With temperatures well above 90 degrees in many places, frantically searching for things to do on the 4th of July if it's too hot to go outside might be priority number one. If you live somewhere where temperatures make being outside a life threatening endeavor (or at least a highly unpleasant and sweaty one), you don't have to cancel all of your festivities just yet.
Instead, consider bringing the festivities indoors this year. Believe it or not, you can have just as much fun inside (where there are air conditioners and you won't feel like melting the second you walk out your door), as you can outside.
Maybe you're looking for fun (and cool) ways to kill time until the temperatures drop low enough for fireworks that evening, or maybe you're hoping to avoid all outdoor activities altogether. Either way, these indoor 4th of July festivities are sure to be just as fun as your annual grill out or pool party — red, white, and blue everything included.
