AAA: Nearly 1.3M from state to travel for Memorial Day
DEARBORN — AAA says nearly 1.3 million people from Michigan are expected to travel during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
The auto club said the projection is a nearly 5 percent increase from last year’s travel for the holiday and the most in more than a decade. AAA says the increase is expected despite higher gas prices as strength is seen in the economy.
AAA says 2018 will mark Michigan’s sixth consecutive year of growth in Memorial Day travel.
More than 1.1 million travelers from Michigan will be driving to their destinations while nearly 70,000 will travel by air.
