AAA estimates that more than 2.8 million Floridians will take at least one 50+ mile trip between this Friday, June 30 and Tuesday, July 4. That is an increase of 87,000 over last year’s previous record high.
“Independence Day weekend appears to be the continuation of what has already been a very strong summer travel season,” said Debbie Haas, Vice President of travel for AAA – The Auto Club Group.
“Although airfares and hotel rates are more expensive than last year, Americans are still eager to travel. So, expect to see congested roads, busy hotels and long lines at airports and attractions.”
