Take in a traditional Independence Day parade in the small Staten Island community of Travis, which hosts its 101st annual promenade. The enclave is also known for festooning its houses with elaborate, patriotic decorations for its Home Decorating Contest; arrive early so you can check out all of the red-white-and-blue, white and blue finery. Then grab a set at the viewing center (4108 Victory Blvd between Melvin and Wild Ave).
