As the Fourth of July approaches we wanted to take a moment to reflect on our country and how far we have come from “the rockets red glare.” Our country was founded on an entrepreneurial and opportunistic spirit. We embrace challenges, no matter how small or large, and take them head on with great zeal! That spirit lives on today and is evident in the vast amount of technological advancements spearheaded by the U-S of A.
With the patriotic spirit at an all time high around the 4th we decided to highlight some of the Most American Websites, but we wanted to stay true to our own roots as Drupal Developers so we compiled the Top Ten Most American Drupal Websites. So as the Red White and Blue majestically waves in the gentle summer breeze and as fireworks explode into the night sky on Thursday you might think about how far our country has come, how lucky we have it and how awesome these American Drupal Websites are!
