Memorial Day travel
AAA says nearly 43 million Americans will start their summers on a high note with a Memorial Day weekend getaway. The long holiday weekend, marking the start of summer vacation season, will see the second-highest travel volume on record, trailing only 2005. Overall, an additional 1.5 million more people will take to the nation’s roads. Stephanie Milani, Tennessee spokesperson for AAA says “Consumer spending remains strong, helped by solid job and income growth. Families continue to prioritize spending their disposable income on travel, and near-record numbers of them are looking forward to doing just that for Memorial Day.” Nationally 43 million people are expected to travel including more than 863,000 Tennesseans.
