Nine Specials to Take in This Fourth of July

View as Map

The Peachtree Road Race begins the Independence Day festivities this Friday, meaning runners can burn plenty of calories in the morning to make room for a celebratory meal. We gathered a list of restaurants around the city offering free beer for runners, famous fried chicken, and a corn dog eating contest, among other options. Take a look at where to eat patriotic specials, catch a view of fireworks, and take a day trip outside the metro area. Have a suggestion you'd like to add? Let us know in the comments.
