AAA Projects Big Uptick In Travel Over Thanksgiving Day Holiday Weekend

AAA projects 54.3 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more away from home this Thanksgiving, a 4.8 percent increase over last year. The 2018 holiday weekend will see the highest Thanksgiving travel volume in more than a dozen years (since 2005), with 2.5 million more people taking to the nation’s roads, skies, rails and waterways compared with last year. Jim Lehman, President of Triple-A East Central says the thriving economy is one of the reasons for the uptick in travel.
