Join The Capitol Steps as they skewer all things political on the Fourth of July Edition of Politics Takes a Holiday. With musical political satire poking fun at all sides of the issues, it's the one new thing in Washington sure to earn bipartisan support. If you're looking for a fun way to enjoy your Independence Day, you've come to the right place!
If you're packed and ready to take a trip for the Fourth of July, you'll be in good company. AAA projects 41 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home for the holiday weekend. AAA Corporate Public Affairs Manager Cheryl Parker says that's a 1.9 percent increase from last year and a 14 percent increase compared to the Memorial Day travel period.
"The majority of travelers, as we've see in in the past, will be traveling by road--8 out of 10-- 34.8 million Americans traveling by automobile," says Parker. "This is the highest number of travelers since 2007."
No better way to celebrate Independence Day (and weekend) than a community parade, carnival, food trucks, kid events and music! Chris Nascimento sits down with Robyn Carey-Allgeyer with a preview of the upcoming Fourth of July Rock n’ Roll Carnival in Northside.
If you're among the 1.7 million Ohioans AAA says are taking a vacation this Independence Day holiday, you're in good, but likely crowded, company. The auto club estimates 1.4 million Ohioans will drive more than 50 miles from home between Wednesday, July 3 and Sunday, July 7.

Pack your patience, a majority of the top destinations listed by AAA are along the I-75 corridor.
