37 million expected to travel for Memorial Day, AAA says
(CNN) – Americans are eager for the start of summer after more than a year of COVID-related shutdowns.
For the Memorial Day weekend, AAA says it expects 37 million people to travel 50 miles or more from home.
That would be 60% more than last year, but still 6 million fewer than pre-pandemic levels.
AAA credits the expected increase in travel to rising vaccination rates and increased consumer confidence.
