More than 47.7 million Americans plan to travel July Fourth weekend, a movement topped only by the pre-pandemic record for Independence Day set in 2019, AAA reported Tuesday.
Florida travel figures are also rebounding. Nearly 2.6 million Floridians are forecast to travel during the holiday weekend. That’s the second-most on record, and 36% more than the 2020 holiday period.
Orlando tops travel destinations nationwide. Based on advance air and tour bookings, AAA projected fellow Disney host city Anaheim, California will be number two. Other top destinations include Denver, Las Vegas, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Boston and Hawaii.
