MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- The number of Tennesseans hitting the roads for Thanksgiving this year is up significantly, but holiday travel has still not returned to pre-recession levels.
AAA says about 46.3 million Americans will travel this holiday season. That’s up more than 4 percent over 2013, but still better than 4 million travelers below the 2007, pre-recession peak.
AAA says about a million Tennesseans will be on the move during the holidays. Spokesman Mark Jenkins says it’s going to be crowded on the nation’s highways.
