Here they are, only partway through enjoying Independence Day celebration anywhere. That designation, awarded this year by several tourists on Ramshorn Street who were obviously delighted and astonished at their good fortune to be here, arises in large part due to the nature of the town that creates it, year after year.

I second the nomination, of course. It’s just the kind of July 4 we kept wandering around New England hoping to find for our children, back when they were small. We had no idea back then that we were thousands of miles too far to the east.
