AAA estimates more than 2.8 million Floridians will take at least one 50+ mile trip between Friday, June 30 and Tuesday, July 4. That is an increase of some 87,000 trips over last year’s previous record-high volume.
“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.”
