It’s summer and Americans with travel plans will increase with July fourth ahead. Suggestions with Jesse Tam are road trips from Seattle metropolitan along Interstate 5 north to Canada or head south on I-5 to Oregon along the coast and into California. Cheaper gas prices is allowing us to spend pennies saved at the pump on other activities. Travel to this destination as a one day trip, spend a weekend or longer and enjoy the cozy towns in the surrounding area.
A stronger economy and jobs is helping to boost the number of planned getaways over what is traditionally the most traveled holiday period of the summer. If the roads seem a little more congested, it’s because they are. Among those traveling, nearly 85% are hitting the highway, a 0.7% over last year. Hotel prices and airfares will increase slightly this year.
