    Lake Arrowhead Resort has some special plans for Fourth of July 2010.

    Your job: Decide to get out of town and fast. Our job: Help you find where you're headed. This week, NBCLA's Worth the Drive takes us to...

    Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa: It's the large and lodge-y getaway just steps from one of SoCal's most famous mountain lakes.

    Fourth of July in Lake Arrowhead: Fireworks over the lake. Classic. Plus a concert in the village and other traditional goings-on, like a firefighters' pancake breakfast.

    Fireworks viewing: The resort has 21 rooms that face the lake, all with private terraces. Could you watch the sky show in your pjs? Why not?

    Other options: If you don't snag a room with a private terrace, there's the barbecue buffet party. Music, dancing, kidly to-dos are on the bill. And then, a place to watch the pyrotechnics. A lakeside deck ticket is $85 for an adult, the lakeside lawn is $60 adult. The price includes two beer/wine tickets, note.

    Rooms: There is a two-night minimum, and prices start at $289 a night.

    Arrowhead Americana: If you haven't been up the mountain, it's a fine (and bustling) weekend to do so. Bet the small town will have its red-white-and-blue-iest best on, too.
