Every year, the 4th of July is one of the biggest travel and tourism weekend in the United States of America.
Every year, the 4th of July is one of the biggest travel and tourism weekend in the United States of America. Every year travelers are enjoying the beaches of Hawaii, the Virgin Islands or Florida, tourists are visiting U.S. national parks and big cities like New York or San Francisco. The long 4th of July weekend in the United States is a day for families, for travel and tourism and to explore the nation.
Federal authorities have warned local law enforcement officials across the country about a heightened concern involving possible terror attacks targeting the July 4th Independence day holiday.
The warning comes days after three deadly attacks in Tunisia, France, and Kuwait, in which scores of civilians were killed. Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) has claimed responsibility for the three attacks.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said: “We will adjust security measures, seen and unseen, as necessary to protect the American people. We continue to encourage all Americans to attend public events and celebrate this country during this summer season, but always remain vigilant.”
