Cue the fireworks: Vrbo reveals where vacation homes are still available for July Fourth

AUSTIN, Texas – June 15, 2021 – In a banner year for summer travel, Vrbo® identified top destinations with vacation homes still available for a family getaway this Fourth of July weekend.

“If you’ve been scouring for a last-minute vacation home where you can barbecue, spend time with family and maybe even catch a firework show this Fourth of July, there are still options available, but you’ll want to book soon,” said Melanie Fish, Vrbo’s travel expert. “Your go-to beach house is probably already taken for the Fourth, but Vrbo pulled its data to see where there were still 30% of its vacation homes available for holiday booking and that make sense for a family getaway.”

Homes in Vrbo’s top summer destinations were scooped up earlier this year than ever before, but a few locations remain with Vrbo homes still available for the long holiday weekend. Ranging from beach destinations to locales nestled near lakes, rivers and mountains, these destinations include:

  • Scottsdale and Phoenix, Ariz.

  • Joshua Tree, Calif.

  • Naples, Fla.

  • West Palm Beach, Fla.

  • Broken Bow, Okla.

  • Poconos Mountains, Pa.

  • Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

  • Canyon Lake, Texas

  • Park City, Utah

  • St. George, Utah

These highly-rated Vrbo vacation homes in the featured destinations are examples of what was still available for this Fourth of July as of June 15, 2021:

If planning to travel for July Fourth, families should check the property’s house rules before booking their stay. House rules are found in the policy section of each listing and dictate important information, including the maximum number of guests, whether events and gatherings are allowed, and whether guests can bring pets. It is also important to review and understand a property’s cancellation policy before booking. The most flexible option allows travelers to cancel their reservation up to 14 days before check-in for a full refund.

Families should check for travel advisories and restrictions in their vacation destination and always follow health and safety guidance from health officials and local authorities. Visit this help article for more resources and information.
