Economy not expected to spoil holiday plans
Travel experts predict most people will travel this Memorial Day weekend, but they say that the trips are likely to be shorter, and less expensive, than in years past.
A survey conducted by AAA indicates 5.4 percent more people will travel over the holiday weekend this year as compared to last year.
AAA Travel Services Director Glen MacDonell says that some of the holiday weekend bargains available last year may not be so readily available. "Last minute deals and bargains were very rampant last year," Macdonell says. "The increase in travel this year will also mean decreased availability."
Metro-North is offering increased service for the unofficial start of summer.
