Memorial Day is coming up on May 27 and for Americans across the country, it's a day for reflecting about the ultimate sacrifices our servicemen and servicewomen have made for our freedoms.

For many Americans, it's also one of the busiest weekends for traveling.

Time to get out of town!

According to AAA, an estimated 43.8 million Americans are expected to travel for Memorial Day weekend. That number also includes the "nearly 262,000 Idahoans" who are expected to head out of town for the weekend - that's more than the entire population of Boise!

A lot of vacationers are choosing to fly as their means of traveling but AAA says that the most popular method of travel this year (and years past) is driving.
