The roads, sidewalks and lakes were all a little busier leading up to Independence Day this year. Locals have been anticipating the uptick in seasonal visitors, and by some accounts local tourism started seeing an uptick earlier this year compared to most. Many people were out enjoying the area's open water, shops, attractions and weekend flea markets as the Fourth of July approached.
