 DENNIS ODA / doda@staradvertiser.com Waikiki Beach was shoulder-to-shoulder in visitors Friday, a reflection of the crowding in the tourism center. Some industry experts say this year's projected visitor total of 8.5 million could max out the supply of hotel rooms, threatening the continued growth of the tourism sector.

Southern Californians traveling by air for the Fourth of July holiday are more likely to choose Hawaii than other destinations, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California.

The club found that because this year’s holiday falls on a Thursday, 0.7 percent fewer Southern Californians are expected to make holiday trips.

However, about 2.92 million SoCal residents still plan holiday travel, most of them by car.

The 343,000 expected to travel by air represent a three-tenths of one percent increase over the 2011 travel number.
