Over 110,000 South Dakotans Expected To Travel For Memorial Day

Over 110,000 South Dakotans Expected To Travel For Memorial Day

About 110,300 South Dakotans are expected to travel over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, a slight decline from last year.  AAA says that mirrors an expected drop nationally. Officials point to high gas prices as the main reason. AAA South Dakota spokeswoman Marilyn Buskohl says the gas prices are cutting into people’s budgets.  State tourism officials still expect a good summer season. Tourism Department spokeswoman Wanda Goodman says there is strong demand for vacation guides and e-newsletters from a digital marketing campaign, and traffic on department-run websites also has been strong.
