Poll: Where Will You Head This 4th of July?

With the Fourth of July holiday falling on a Wednesday this year, are you staying close to home for a barbeque, or heading out?


For the chef or the person preparing the food, it can be a long day, sort of a Thanksgiving in summer.

But with the Fourth of July falling on a Wednesday this year, there's no day after on which to recover, as there is after Thanksgiving. So do you take an extra day to relax?

What are your plans? Do you take the whole week off - for those of you that have vacations - if a holiday like the Fourth of July falls mid-week? Or do you hold off, and work all other days of the week?

And if you only take one day off, do you travel, or is it best to set up camp in the backyard, and enjoy the idea that's no one's going to cut you off in traffic, at least for a day?

Let us know in the comments. Then take the poll below.
