ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Vacationer posted a survey on June 1 and 2 asking questions to 531 Americans over the age of 18 what their Fourth of July plans are.

51% of participants said they plan on traveling for the fourth of July which is pretty surprising when 65% say they still view COVID as a concern. Participants were also asked, out of all the major holidays in 2020 what holidays did you travel? Fourth of July came in at the lowest at 15%.

The Vacationer also reported that 32% of American adults said they will spend more than $500 on the fourth of July which the Vacationer says is a pretty substantial number.

The data shows that Americans are more excited this year to celebrate the Fourth of July as COVID restrictions begin to go down.
