Get Away at Home this Independence Day

- Melissa Mewdell,

With CNN reporting that Americans are likely to travel less over the July 4th long weekend due to the economy, staying close to home is more important this year than ever before. But that doesn’t mean that you still can’t “get away” from home.

We think a fun long weekend at a great hotel in your home town might be a solution to the economic woes stunting your plans for the long weekend. We’ve profiled three of our favorite hotels below – but you can find one in your area by visiting our page about the best hotels in the United States.

Jumeirah Essex House:

This landmark in New York City is the perfect location to celebrate Independence Day!

Jumeirah Essex House is right across from Central Park.

Guests can enjoy complimentary bicycles and picnic baskets, perfect for an elegant picnic lunch and tour of the park. This upscale area of Manhattan is the perfect spot to enjoy your Independence Day getaway.

The Standard New York:

The perfect place to see and be seen, the Standard New York is located in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking District.

At the Standard, you’ll have unmatched views of the Hudson River – perfect for getting a prime seat for Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks!

In celebration of the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson exploring the Hudson River, this world famous fireworks display is happening over the Hudson River this year instead of the East River. What a treat!

Trump International Hotel and Tower Chicago:

Fireworks for Independence Day actually begin on July 3rd in Chicago, so be sure to make your weekend a long one at the Trump International Hotel and Tower Chicago.

This trendy hotel boasts stunning views of the city through floor-to-ceiling windows, a fantastic spa and great restaurant.

You’ll thoroughly enjoy the Taste of Chicago, fireworks and other July 4th festivities happening all weekend in the Windy City from the Trump!

  3. Appreciate it for posting this article. I am decidedly frustrated with struggling to search out pertinent and intelligent commentary on this issue. Everybody today goes to the very far extremes to possibly drive house their viewpoint that both: everyone else in the planet is wrong, or two that everyone but them does not really understand the situation. Many with thanks for your concise, pertinent insight.
