Nearly 37 million Americans are expected to travel at least 50 miles from home this Memorial Day holiday weekend, according to AAA. That would set a record.

The Travel Industry Association of America says leisure travel is expected to climb three-point-two percent nationwide, despite higher fuel prices and the threat of terrorism.

Most travel industry experts say travelers might juggle budgets, stay fewer days or travel a shorter distance, but won't cancel trips, figuring most people put a priority on enjoying leisure time.
