More than 5.9 million people in Florida are forecast to travel between Dec. 23 and Jan. 2, according to AAA. Although that’s 4.5% fewer travelers than the record high set back in 2019, it’s still 1.5 million, or 35%, more than last year. Nationally, 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, and just 8% shy of 2019 – which was the highest on record, AAA reports.
