Families are planning to get away in 2019!
According to AAA, nearly 100 million Americans will go on a family vacation this year. That number is slightly up from last year. AAA says spring and summer road trips are tops on the list. According to a survey, 4 in 10 adults in the United States plan to take a family vacation this year.
Here are the results of the survey, according to AAA:
68 percent will go on a summer getaway, while just under half plan to travel as a family this spring.
About half of traveling families (53 percent) expect to pack up their cars for a road trip this year.
Travelers in the South are more likely to be making plans for a family trip this year (62 percent) than travelers in the Northeast (35 percent).
“The great American road trip is still one of the best ways for families to relax and reconnect with one another,” said Carol DiOrio, vice president of travel at AAA WCNY. “This is quickly shaping up to be another busy year for family travelers, both on the roadways, as well as other popular travel destinations and attractions. To make the most of their vacations, AAA recommends families plan and research as far ahead as possible to avoid missing out on popular activities and fun.”
