Independence Day Travel May See Slight Decline

aaa

With Independence Day coming up next week, travel experts are analyzing what tourism interests might expect in the days ahead.  AAA Auto Club is projecting nationwide; 40.8 million people will be traveling 50 miles or more from their homes for the holiday – down slightly from last year.  Specifically, the western states will see a ½% decline according to the forecast, but the region will still outpace the rest of the nation.  Once again, the value of a national park trip over other attractions like theme parks is seen as a draw for the region here.  Moreover, AAA points out that the tourism industry in the Mountain region, as measured by leisure and hospitality industry output – that is the value of goods and services produced by the leisure and hospitality industry – has been growing since the second quarter of 2012. Thus, the Mountain region’s tourism industry has been mostly outperforming the national tourism industry over that same time span.
