Happy Fourth of July!
I love seeing all the photos on social media of parades, festivities, fireworks, flags, and red, white, and blue! That said, I’m so glad that we did the crazy busy 4th of July in Washington DC thing last year, because this year I barely have the energy to make the trek to the neighbor’s pool and watch some fireworks on TV tonight. What a difference a year makes!
However, I do have the energy to browse airfares, and I saw one this morning that seemed fitting to share given that today is Independence Day. Via Fare Deal Alert, you can fly on United from Houston to Philadelphia from September to mid-November on select Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays for as low as $161 round trip. That is a good price for that route on United out of Houston. I love the idea of booking a flight to see Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell on Independence Day. Tip: Make sure you request a timed entry ticket ahead of time if you do go to Independence Hall.
You do seem to have to connect in Chicago to get the lowest price on the dates I searched, though some dates had nonstop flights for only a slightly higher price. I recommend using a flexible date search in order to quickly spot the cheapest dates to travel.
Hope you have a great July 4th wherever you are celebrating!
