Traveler in Miami

In this Friday, June 29, 2012 photo, Pat Burns, of San Diego, prepares her luggage for check-in at Miami International Airport in Miami. Burns, after an overnight stay in Miami, is traveling to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador for the Fourth of July holiday. For the first time in five years Independence Day falls on a Wednesday, leaving travelers unsure when to celebrate and worrying those who make a living off tourists. Those who sell vacations say this year's calendar gives Americans more options: Tack on Saturday through Tuesday or Thursday through Sunday to the holiday, or just take the entire week off.
