According to AAA, the following cities in the United States are the best places to celebrate the holidays this year: Orlando, Seattle, New York, Anaheim, California, Anchorage, Alaska, Ft. Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Honolulu, Denver, and Chicago.

According to Hopper, domestic round-trip flight around the Fourth of July holiday is expected to cost an average of $437, which is a 45 percent increase from 2019.

According to Hopper, the most cost-effective way to travel within the United States is to take a short weekend trip, departing on Saturday, July 2, and returning on Monday, July 4; this will get you the best pricing available.

Traveling By Car

According to AAA's projections, the most congested times on the roads will occur in the afternoons of Thursday, June 30 and Friday, July 1. This is because commuters will be leaving work earlier on those days, which will coincide with the arrival of holiday travelers.

The data analytics company INRIX suggests that if you must go on the roads on Friday, the best times to do so are either before 10 a.m. or after 9 p.m. On Thursday, the optimum times to visit are either before 7 a.m. or after 8 p.m.

INRIX forecasts that Wednesday, July 3, and Thursday, July 4, will be the days with the least amount of traffic.

Car Rentals

The standard daily charge for renting a car has been steadily climbing ever since the winter holidays of the previous year.

Because of ongoing problems with the supply chain and rising demand, these prices are expected to continue to go up as the number of people who fly increases.

When compared to pre-pandemic years like 2019, daily automobile rental rates are on average $40 higher than they were. This is despite the fact that rates have reduced by 34 percent in comparison to the previous year, with the average lowest rate coming in at $110 per day.

Hotels

There has been a rise of almost 23 percent in the rates for hotels in the mid-range category, with the average lowest weekly rate reaching $244 for AAA-approved hotels.
