More Nevadans expected to travel for Labor Day
A new travel survey from AAA Nevada predicts nearly an 11 percent increase in the number of people expected to travel over Labor Day weekend in the region.
AAA’s latest travel forecast predicts more than 2.6 million Mountain West residents, which includes Nevada, Colorado and Arizona, will travel 50 miles or more from their homes this upcoming three-day Labor Day weekend.
“Despite the continued mixed feelings regarding the economic recovery, a strong comeback in travel is anticipated for this holiday weekend,” said AAA Nevada spokesperson Michael Geeser.
Nationally, AAA projects just over 34 million people will travel 50 miles or more.
