Ka’anapali–Four days we were here. On Fourth of July Eve we are in the world’s greatest city–greatest because unlike New York it is clean and beautiful everywhere, great because of its glitz, modernity, ambiance, flower lined avenues, Millennium Park, Frank Gehry outdoor concert venue, rich architecture, spectacular events, fine art museum, great symphony, beautiful lakefront not maligned by piers or ugly structures, 21 miles of bike path on a lakefront that was preserved by the great Daniel Burnham, and more. Here is what it looked like in just a few places on Fourth of July eve.
