July 4th will Mark Huge Increase in Travel

AAA projects shows there will be a significant jump in travel this 4th of July by both car and plane. An estimated 34.9 million people will be traveling 50 miles or more over the busy holiday weekend.

The 4th of July is always a busy travel time because the weather is nice, the kids aren’t in school and it’s the perfect time to visit new cities and exciting destinations. There will also be a ton of July 4th celebrations all over the US. Some large-scale celebrations include Fourth of July in New York City, Chicago and San Francisco.
