School has been in session for almost a month now, plenty of time to settle back in to a routine, and to miss the lazy days of summer vacation. What did you do over summer break? A 25-city, four-week tour of Europe? A week-long trip to a sunny beach? A day-long road trip? Share your photos on Barrow Patch!
Turns out those staying home this summer are in the minority, because AAA travel club reports that the number of Americans traveling has been on a slow and steady increase for the last two years. AAA's travel data from July 4 of this year showed a 4.9 increase from last year for people trekking more than 50 miles from home to celebrate.
"Americans are still in love with their vacations and they are finding ways to finance those vacations despite the slow-growing economy," said Cynthia Brough, director of public relations for AAA's national office. Brough said travelers these days are looking for value and economy, however they personally define it.
