April 20 is like a second Christmas or New Year for cannabis lovers. It is the biggest and the most exciting event of the year, a day of celebrating cannabis culture, having fun with friends and like-minded people, and enjoying a marijuana-friendly atmosphere to the fullest. If you want to get the most out of this year’s 4/20 celebrations, you need to pick the right place for the party. And we have some bright 420 ideas for you.
Here is the list of the four best places for celebrating 4/20.
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Amsterdam is like the Mecca of marijuana. The legendary coffeeshops and the brightest parties wait for you in the old and fascinating city in the northern part of the Netherlands. If you are lucky, you can make your way to one of the local 4/20 parties.
One of the biggest events will be the Elite Cup Festival. On April 20, there will be lots of various entertainment options: from a large expo to live music to delicious foods and drinks. Plus, Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, so this trip will be a total win-win for you.
Statue of Louis Pasteur in San Rafael, California
If you want to make the history of the 420 movement a part of this year’s celebration―visit the birthplace of the international pot lovers’ holiday. A small Californian city San Rafael is where everything began.
Decades ago, locals used to meet at the Statue of Louis Pasteur, looking for a rumored weed patch nearby. The important thing is that they used to meet at 4:20 p.m. Later, 420 became a code word for cannabis, spreading the 420 movement not only across the country but across the world.
Hippie Hill, San Francisco
Hippie Hill is one of the most popular gathering spots for marijuana activists and enthusiasts. And since California has recently legalized cannabis for recreational use, this place is probably going to be overcrowded by marijuana fans.
Hippie Hill is definitely one of the best places for celebrating cannabis culture and meeting new friends.
Mile 419.99, Stratton, Colorado
There are not many roads with a Mile 420 marker in the U.S. A few years ago, Colorado had one of these markers on its I-70 highway. After the state had legalized cannabis for recreational use, the Mile 420 marker became a desirable trophy for cannabis tourists. So, there were nothing left for the local authorities to do but to move the marker down one-hundredth of a mile and put a Mile 419.99 marker instead.
