Crowded Air Travel

We’re a week away from the 4th of July, but at Tampa International Airport it’s already one of the busiest travel times. Between today and Sunday they once again anticipate record number of people flying, and already had delays on Wednesday that were weather related. Call ahead for flight information and it’s always a good idea to reserve parking at TPA.

AAA is out with travel advice for the 4th of July holiday. Once again, it’s going to be very crowded with some 71 million planning to head out. If you’re driving, the heaviest traffic on the 4th will be between 2-7 pm. Lower gas prices help, but tropical weather could change that.

There’s a little activity in the tropics. From the Dove Hurricane Guide and 10 Tampa Bay Weather, the National Hurricane Center is tracking two systems that are moving toward the Mexican coastline. They do think that Invest 95L has a a good chance of being the next named storm on the list, and that’s Beryl.

The Florida Department of Revenue has published the list of items that will be available tax-free starting Monday for what they call “Freedom Summer”. The entire month of July will be dedicated to giving us a chance to buy the things we love to use, well, all year long! There is everything from electric scooters, event tickets and state park passes and more. Check for what qualifies here.

The costs for the expansion of the Tampa Riverwalk have risen from an initial estimate of $30 million to a now City Council approved 56.8 million. Council will hold a final vote July 18 on the west Riverwalk plans for a six-mile pedestrian and bike path.
