Stats: Florida Holiday Travel

 Florida is known as being a top-notch tourist destination for winter getaways, spring breaks, as well as year-round Disney getaways. As many people can assume, travel is up this year due to loads of people making up for lost time and canceled plans last year because of the pandemic.

According to AAA Florida’s busiest influx of tourists is forecasted to be between Dec 23. and January 2 with an estimated 5.9 million travelers. The number of expected travelers is only 4.5% less than the record-breaking number of travelers set in 2019. As reported by AAA, “more than 109 million people — an almost 34% increase from 2020 — will travel 50 miles or more as they hit the road, board airplanes or take other transportation out of town between Dec. 23 and Jan. 2. That dramatic bounce-back — 27.7 million more travelers than the 2020 holiday period — brings this year’s numbers in line with 2017 figures”

Debbie Haas, Vice president of AAA says “Americans who canceled their vacations in 2020 want to gather with family and friends for the holidays this year, although they will still need to be mindful of the pandemic, conditions are much different and many people feel a greater level of comfort with travel this year.”
