There will be lots of exciting festivities throughout the country in national parks and heritage sites for Independence Day. One of the most popular ways to celebrate our country’s birthday is by having a barbecue out in nature, and so I’ve gathered together below a short list of the best places to enjoy a picnic with friends and family on this special day.

One of my favorites is Ein Akub (or Ein Tawfik in Arabic), located in Mevo Hama Forest, just south of Lake Kinneret. There’s an organized parking area there and you can combine a picnic with a nice hike. Water from the spring flows through a stone channel into a pool where you can get your feet wet, and there are tall eucalyptus trees that provide nice shade for picnics.
