Independence Day is nearly here—and we’re absolutely lovin’ it. We’re sure you’ve been busy thinking about 4th of July party ideas, even if it doesn't mean the big backyard bash you're used to. You've been putting the finishing touches on Fourth of July party decorations, cute 4th of July crafts—such as a handmade wreath or DIY Mason jar—and a playlist of patriotic country songs just waiting to be queued up. You've also been making an 4th of July menu filled with all your favorite 4th of July recipes. Whatever you choose to serve, it’s all bound to be downright delicious. And of course, we're already hoping to end the evening with a stunning fireworks display.
Now, with so many tasks already done and so many things still to do, you’re definitely going to be in the mood for a bite to keep you going. (Especially if you’re hosting all the events this year!) Because you’re doing so much cooking already, you should let someone else make a meal for you. Out of the many options available, where can you go for a quick, affordable, and tasty meal? McDonald’s, of course!
But before you grab your keys, jump in your car, and head out to the Golden Arches, you’re going to need to know the answer to a very important question: Is McDonald’s even open on the 4th of July?
Well, here's the thing. The fast food chain has yet to officially reveal whether their doors will be open or not on the 4th. However, the home of the Big Mac has been open for other major holidays—including Christmas Day and Easter Sunday—so there's a chance McDonald's will be open on the 4th of July.
As a company spokesperson previously told CountryLiving.com, "Ninety-five percent of McDonald's restaurants are independently owned and operated, so the holiday business hours will vary by location. The best way to determine hours for your local McDonald's is to call ahead of your visit to confirm their hours." Keep in mind that many locations are currently operating under limited schedules due to the COVID-19 pandemic and, depending on your local regulations, the dining room may be closed, so you may have to hit the drive-thru. The safest bet is to check the restaurant locator to find the hours of the McDonald's near you.
Well, there you have it. Whether you're craving a McFlurry, Chicken McNuggets, or an order of French fries, simply double-check with your local restaurant before heading out. (You can also swing by these restaurants and grocery stores that will be open on the 4th of July too.)
