As part of our 4th of July celebration here at Like A Boss, we thought we’d compile a list of the 15 most American things ever created by the Heavens (or maybe the American people).
#15: Coca-Cola
Based on a brand study done in 2011 by Interbrand, Coca-Cola is the most valuable brand in the world. Originally marketed as medicine, Coke is now the most popular soft drink on the planet.

#14: Walking on the Moon
No other country has sent people to the moon. Period.

#13: Harley-Davidson
Founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin over 100 years ago, the Harley-Davidson Motor Company is still going strong. Which red-blooded American wouldn’t want to ride a Harley?!

#12: The Statue of Liberty
Located on Liberty Island in the middle of New York Harbor, in Manhattan, New York City, the Statue of Liberty is enormous. The massive sculpture of Liberta, the Roman goddess of freedom, was a gift from France in 1886. The statue symbolizes freedom, which is about as American as anything gets.

#11: Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon whiskey, by definition, has to be made in the United States. It’s a barrel-aged distilled spirit made primarily from corn. No alcoholic beverage is more American than straight bourbon whiskey. Whether you prefer Maker’s Mark, Jim Beam or Jack Daniels, you’ll still be an American patriot drinking it!

The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) is known around the world as an extremely American racing sport business. Turn left!

#9: Ford
Ford introduced the large-scale manufacturing process of cars (i.e. the first moving assembly line in 1913) to the world. These methods were known as Fordism around the world by 1914 and arguably led to establishing Detroit as the Motor City. Henry Ford’s path to greatness in the automotive industry is a great symbol for the American Dream.

#8: Route 66
The most iconic road through the United States, Route 66 is often referred to as the Main Street of America or the Mother Road. There are too many attractions to list along this legendary route.

#7: Bacon
Bacon is delicious, nutritious, and very American. It’s part of an American breakfast and also a staple with typical ‘Murican foods like bacon cheeseburgers. Bacon should have its own food category (at the top).

#6: Guns
Americans love guns almost as much as they love freedom. Good thing a gun is a great way to secure your freedom, if you know how to use it!

#5: Baseball
America’s favorite pastime has been extremely popular in the United States since a baseball craze hit New York in the 1850s. Today, it remains the most popular sport in the USA.

#4: Donut Cheeseburgers
Combining two foods responsible for driving obesity rates through the roof into one is definitely American!

#3: Bald Eagle
A bird of prey found in North America, the bald eagle is both the national bird and national animal of the USA.

#2: Uncle Sam
Named after Samuel Wilson, who provided meat for soldiers during the War of 1812, Uncle Sam is the national personification of the American Government.

#1: The Constitution
Nothing is more American than the constitution. It’s the supreme law governing the United States of America. Since it was put into effect in 1789, it has only been amended 27 times. Ever. With seven articles and 27 amendments, the United States constitution is the shortest written constitution in force like a boss.
