It’s March; have you started to plan a vacation yet?
Nearly 90 percent of Americans will be hitting the road for at least four days during a time not associated with holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas.
That’s according to the latest AAA Consumer Pulse Survey.
The top three vacations named were visiting a city, visiting a beach and taking a cruise respectively.

Seventy-two percent of those polled said they planned to take a trip within the next three months.
“Whether it’s to see something new, visit family or just blow off steam, travel is important to Americans and a vital stimulus to the economy. People are even more likely to travel in 2015 because gas prices are a dollar lower than this time last year,” AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said.
Most Americans will be staying within the U.S.; only 20 percent of those polled say they will be traveling abroad.
The findings of this poll are based on more than 1,200 people in Georgia, Florida and Tennessee.
