Are you traveling for Memorial Day?
Memorial Day is fast approaching which means many Americans are packing bags and planning a road trip. According to AAA, 11% of Americans will take a trip this weekend. That is up from last year, but AAA notes that a lot of people are cutting back in other ways. For example, the distance people are driving is down drastically, 150 miles less than last year. Also, the majority of travelers over the holiday weekend are visiting family and friends, possibly saving money on lodging.
What are you doing this weekend? Are you flying somewhere? Driving? This is a big camping weekend...maybe you're headed into the woods. Leave your comments below and tell me where you're going. Was it easy to find a camping spot? Are gas prices holding you back? Personally, I'm headed to Central Oregon for the holiday weekend, but I will be back in plenty of time for a holiday edition of Portland's Afternoon News!
