Holiday Travel Expected To Be Up This Year

"I love driving the interstate no stopping just putting the pedal down and go,” says traveler Will DeWit.

Whether you’re from Canada or North Dakota, people are loading up their car and hitting the roads, it’s time for this year’s Christmas vacation.

"At Christmas we don't usually travel but this year we decided to head out and visit family down in Kansas,” says DeWit.

"The weather has been wonderful we've had great roads and we hope to continue,” says Vicki Cubat from North Dakota.

"This year is probably a little bit different because the weather is so different this year we've made different plans,” mentions Orval Gladback.

According to Mark Madeja the travel numbers have been low overall this year, but with Christmas approaching, numbers are expected to rise.

"I think that the weather is going to play a part, I also think we might see stronger numbers than what were originally predicted due to the fact up in the Midwest at least were going to be in pretty good shape,” explains Madeja.

Holiday travel is expected to be slightly up this year in the Midwest but this also includes people coming to South Dakota.

Orval Gladback is on his way home from Minneapolis headed to Rapid City for the holidays, and when the weather is supposed to be mild in South Dakota why not stay here for Christmas rather than risk it elsewhere.

"Well hopefully, the weather there is better than it is in Minnesota, so we're going to go back home and stay there for Christmas,” says Gladback.

Another Christmas vacation, another family road trip, with some saying, they just can't wait to get back on the road again.
