AAA Expects Slight Decline In Holiday Travel

May 24, 2013

An estimated 1.3 million Ohioans plan to travel over the Memorial Day weekend.

Ohio AAA spokesperson Kimberly Schwind says it's down a little bit from last year -- and there's more bad news for businesses that depend on travelers.

Schwind says the picture should improve in the upcoming months, though.

Schwind says the annual survey shows travelers anticipate spending $659 over the holiday weekend -- down 6 percent from last year.
