Number of Travelers Over Memorial Day Weekend Expected to Increase

If you're traveling for the Memorial Day weekend, expect a ton of traffic.


Triple- A is projecting 39 million Americans will travel by plane, train or automobile.


That’s the highest number since 2005.  Drivers in New England are forecasted to exceed the national average and see an increase of 2.7 percent from 1.57 million to 1.61 million


“The expected spike in Memorial Day travel mirrors the positive growth seen throughout the travel industry this year,” said Pat Moody director of public affairs for AAA Northern New England. “Higher confidence has led to more consumer spending, and many Americans are choosing to allocate their extra money on travel this Memorial Day.”

The top Memorial Day destination this year based on Triple-A travel bookings, is Orlando, Florida.
