Tampa, Fla.-(Newsradio WFLA)-Nearly one hundred million Americans are expected to take a family vacation this year according to a new AAA travel survey. The auto club says 4 in 10 adults say they plan to hit the road.
The survey shows that two-thirds of all family travelers will take-off for a summer getaway. Some 53 per cent of the people surveyed say they'll pack up their vehicles for an actual road trip.
Travelers in the South are more likely to be making plans for a family trip than those who live in the Northeast U.S. according to the people who took part in the survey.
Florida, with Disney, Universal, Busch Gardens, Sea World, Legoland and more is expected to be a prime destination this year.
