We seemed determined to have a good time this Memorial Day weekend. AAA projects more than 3.5 million Californians will be taking road trips. That's an increase of 1.5 percent over last year.

While more of us are driving fewer of us are flying.

Air travel will decrease by more than 5 percent. Still, just shy of 400,000 Californians will take to the sky.

Another quarter million will be traveling by train, boat and buses, that is an increase of nearly 12 percent over last year.

If you aren't traveling, consider getting into that hot new restaurant. With so many leaving town, there are reservations available.
