The 4th of July is coming up quick. Are you ready? If you don’t have plans, travel expert Jeanenne Tornatore has you covered! She reminds that even though big cities like Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and even Chicago come to mind when thinking about where to go for the holiday, there are a lot of towns that offer a cool experience.
Independence Day is the third most traveled holiday of the year and that means families are figuring out where to go. Besides those big cities you can try Nashville, Baltimore, New Orleans, Charleston, South Carolina and more. Travel blogs can help you pick that perfect place. And you’ll even find affordable hotels.
Since the holiday falls on a Wednesday, you can even turn what would be a short holiday into a nine day family fun fest. Plan it out well, though. Some towns will hold festivities before the holiday and some after, with only a few planning them on Independence Day itself.
