Want to go on a vacation with friends but you’re not sure if you can take enough time off work? By including federal holidays when planning your bus journeys to exciting cities in the United States, you can make the most out of your vacation time. Enjoy your long-weekends in cities like Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Phoenix. FlixBus offers you many comfortable bus rides to these great vacation destinations at unbeatable prices.
With most of the federal holidays falling on a Monday, it is easy enough to take the Friday off and extend your long weekend! However, by using four days of annual leave around Independence Day, you can turn a day off into a week-long vacation!
There is no better place to spend your free time than in sunny southern California. When it comes to Independence Day, San Diego pulls out all the stops. It’s no surprise that the city that is so closely tied to the US Navy has the biggest fireworks display on the West Coast, the Big Bay Boom. For the best views, head to Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Harbor Island or Shelter Island with all your Fourth of July picnic essentials and celebrate Independence Day with your friends! You can even rent a boat or join a harbor cruise and spend the day out on the water. History lovers want to head to the free celebration in Old Town where you can relive what the Fourth of July was like in the 1800s and enjoy various activities and games. Once the celebrations are over, you can spend the rest of your vacation exploring San Diego’s landmarks and amazing beaches such as Balboa Park and Coronado Beach.
