This summer is an exciting time in the nation's capital with the debut of the CityCenter complex, a brand-new, 10-acre, $700-million luxury retail center that The New York Times dubbed the "Rockefeller Center of DC."

A Capital July 4th celebration wouldn’t be complete without the nationally televised concert featuring the National Symphony Orchestra followed by fireworks from the National Mall. This year’s celebration will be bigger than ever as the nation’s capital commemorates the 150th anniversary of Arlington Cemetery and the 200th anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner.
