My wife and I are planning a trip with another couple. They seem bent on going over the July 4th holiday because of the free day off it will give them. I realize all the hotels are way more expensive, so we will probably be staying at Doubletree with a jacuzzi room instead of Embassy or Sheraton, which would both be about a million dollars for that timeframe.
My question is, does the July 4th holiday cause significantly more congestion and reduction in enjoyment of the whole scene? I mean, nothing extra special happens, right? There are fireworks a couple times per week. Are the crowds on the 4th large enough to be obviously bigger than, say the end part of June?
If it seems like the difference will be major, I might make a much firmer stand about going some other time. Thanks
