Planning on getting away for the long Memorial Day Weekend? The predictions are out about how many people will be traveling over the long holiday weekend.
AAA says it is going to be super busy--possibly a record number of people traveling for the holiday. They're predicting that as many as 41 1/2 million people (which is 2 million more than last year) planning to get out of town. 36.6 million will be heading out on a road trip, while another 3.1 million will be flying to their vacation destination. AAA says the busiest travel days will be late Thursday (May 24th) and Friday May 25th.
And, if you're planning a trip via I-4 to take advantage of the fun at all the theme parks, plan extra travel time because Orlando is the top Memorial Day Weekend destination.
