AAA Holiday Travel Predictions: Travelers Out in Full Force for Thanksgiving

AAA has released this year’s Thanksgiving holiday travel forecast. According to AAA, more than 55 million travelers are making plans to kick off the holiday season with a trip of 50 miles or more away from home this Thanksgiving season. This will be the second-highest Thanksgiving travel volume since AAA began tracking back in 2000, trailing only the record set in 2005.

Overall, an additional 1.6 million more people will travel compared with last year, a 2.9% increase. AAA expects 3.2 million travelers will originate regionally, including Alabama, Kentucky, Tennesee, and of course, right here in our home state of Mississippi.
