With the economy improving, more than four out of five respondents (83 percent) said they plan to take an overnight leisure trip of more than 100 miles roundtrip this summer, up from last year’s survey (78 percent). In fact, the majority of these travelers (53 percent) expect to take two or more leisure trips this summer.
