    May 23, 2017 No comments

    AAA Hoosier Motor Club LogoIndianapolis, IN – May 19, 2017 – AAA projects that 39.3 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more away from home this Memorial Day weekend. That is one million more travelers than last year taking to the roads, skies, rails and water, creating the highest Memorial Day travel volume since 2005.

    In Indiana, 850,713 residents will be on the go, 2.5 percent more than in 2016.

    “The expected spike in Memorial Day travel mirrors the positive growth seen throughout the travel industry this year,” said Greg Seiter, AAA Hoosier Motor Club public affairs manager. “Higher confidence has led to more consumer spending, and many Americans are choosing to allocate their extra money on travel during this time.”

    The Memorial Day holiday travel period is defined as Thursday, May 25 to Monday, May 29.
