Happy Independence Day, America!

Americans love to eat, and love to eat well. We explored July 4th recipes around the United States by using our realtime geographically-aware search service (more on this coming soon) to take a tour of how the United States cooks for independence day.

We found alligator ribs in Florida, tequila watermelons in Georgia, and a national love for classics, like corn on the cob, potato salad, and anything involving strawberries. Read on and let us know your favorites in the comments!

You can also explore each recipe in this handy bitly bundle.
