Record Number Of Californians Expected To Travel For Memorial Day


The summer travel season is kicking off with one of the busiest Memorial Day weekends since AAA began tracking travel data in 2000.
Nationwide, more than 43.8 million Americans are projected to travel over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. That figure is 4 percent higher than last year and comes close to matching 2005’s record of 44 million Memorial Day travelers.

AAA projects a record 38.4 million people will travel by car over Memorial Day weekend, up 4 percent compared to last year. In addition, AAA expects this will be the most crowded Memorial Day weekend at airports since 2005 with 3.51 million air travelers this holiday weekend, an increase of nearly 5 percent over last year.

“We’re expecting Memorial Day weekend numbers like we haven’t seen in almost 20 years,” said Brian Ng, Senior Vice President of Membership and Travel Marketing for AAA Northern California. “It’s not just a return to pre-pandemic levels but also foreshadows the robust summer travel season ahead.”

Given inflation and family budgets being squeezed, thinking their estimate is high.
If nothing else, go down to a nearby boat launch ramp and watch the drunks try to keep their vehicle from floating and person on the boat closing one eye in an attempt to figure out which of the three trailers is the right one.
It’s great fun.

I will stay home. To many fools will be on the road.
