Last Minute Fourth of July Plans

It’s easy to let time get away from you with work responsibilities and day to day life going on. If you’ve just realized that the 4th of July is coming in a month and you’ve got some time off coming, don’t worry, there’s still time to plan something terrific and exciting to do for your July 4th holiday.

There are a few questions that you can ask yourself that will help you pick the perfect 4th of July holiday.

Do you want to go out of town or stay in your area? – Some people love to travel no matter what time of year it is and others like staying home. You need to decide whether you want to go out of town for a few days for this 4th of July or if you will be looking for things to do in your own city or town.

What kind of Budget are you working with? – If you have both time off and extra money you’re in a really great position to plan a really terrific 4th of July and go somewhere new at the same time. What you can plan will be determined by your budget so set one that you want to stick with and look for options that fit within your budget. You will have quite a bit of variety that you may not have considered. With a month to work with, you have plenty of time to do a bit of research to figure out what you want to do.

Are you more Outdoorsy or Do you want something Traditional? – Do you love being outdoors? July is a great month to camp, even though it can be hot. If you find the right campgrounds, there will be plenty of amenities to combat the heat. There are some phenomenal outdoor festivals and 4th of July celebrations all across the U.S. so finding something great to do is not going to be hard at all.

What are you Looking to do? – What type of 4th of July holiday are you looking for? Do you want something with tons of activities for the whole family? Do you like the idea of the events that last several days rather than just on the 4th? Make sure you know what you’ve got a hankering to do and that will help narrow the choices.

Some possible Ideas for you to Consider

If you’re having a bit of trouble deciding what you’d like to do for the 4th and don’t have a ton of time to plan, here are some great ideas that may appeal to you.

Go Camping at an all Inclusive Campground Close to a Bog Festival – there are so many festivals and 4th of July celebrations all across the US. Choose one relatively close to home and go to an excellent campground that includes a lot of amenities like swimming, game rooms, bicycle rentals and more. Not only will you have a fabulous time watching the fireworks together, you will love relaxing and getting away from the hustle and bustle of your daily life.

Go on a 4th of July Cruise – If you have vacation money saved up and can afford it, why not take a 4th of July cruise with the family? Cruises can last anywhere from 4 to 8 days so depending on how much time and money you have, you can find a great and different thing to do this year on the 4th. Remember to do these things before you go on your cruise:

  • 1. Make arrangements for your pets if you have any
  • 2. Make packing lists so you don’t forget anything
  • 3. Make arrangements to have mail stopped while you are gone
  • 4. Research the areas the cruise will be stopping at so you can make some plans on what to do and see
  • 5. Know of any extra costs associated with the cruise ahead of time

Taking care if these things will alleviate a lot of stress from your vacation and allow you to enjoy it thoroughly.

Have a Staycation – Do you know what awesome things your town does for the 4th of July? Many people forget to check the places they live, getting so used to the day to day that they forget their town or city may have some incredible activities that they have never heard of or tried. Even if you don’t leave town, with some planning and research (and a month is plenty of time for both) you can plan a staycation that will be fun AND relaxing.
