Roadtrip June/July 2023
Save

Hi everyone, in latter stages of planning our 6 week roadtrip next year. 2 weeks in the South, 3 weeks NYC,Boston and Nova Scotia and 1 week in San Francisco and LA.

My question is..... I've just realised our domestic flight from Boston to SF will be on July 4th. Will it be ridiculously busy on this day? Should we change it? Nothing is booked yet, doing all that the start of October.

It's hard to know. July 4th falls on a Tuesday in 2023; some folks will make it a 4-day weekend and travel on the 4th; others might just decide to take off the whole week and won't be flying that day. I would try to fly earlier in the day rather than later, though.

The annual Fourth of July Fireworks in SF may be from a barge off Aquatic Park. We flew from Dallas to SF to watch the Fireworks in SF years ago. It was so foggy at Aquatic Park on the July 4th. We could not see the fireworks. We were really disappointed.

most people have already arrived so airlines should not be that busy on the 4th.

If you go to San Francisco, there are fireworks, Try to stay in the fisherman wharf area and you can walk from there to see them.
