Day Tripper -- July 4th Edition
It's only about a 45 minute drive from Granada Hills to the enchanting town of to Fillmore, home of many lovely farms, fruit stands, and this time of year, plentiful safe 'n' sane fireworks. Buying and transporting such fireworks back to your Granada Hills backyard might make you a scofflaw, but it also means you're supporting of organizations like the Vernon Police Officers Benefit, Rotary Club, AYSO, and Future Farmers of America. Oh, and did I also mention that it makes you a patriotic American? Yep, it's true. City slicker types might prefer to head to the El Monte area, not too far from Pasadena, where you can stop for a lovely lunch in the Old Town shopping district, thus further stimulating the American economy.
