It's Memorial Day Weekend and that means a lot of people will be traveling.
 
Memorial Day weekend is one of the busiest times of the year for summer travel. In fact, today is considered the 4th busiest of the year for the nation's airports.
 
 
AAA says more than 38 million Americans will head out this weekend. That is up from 700,000 last year.
 
 
Many of those people will be coming to Las Vegas. According to Orbitz, Las Vegas is in the top 10 destinations in our country for Memorial Day.
 
It's not a bad idea to show up a little extra early if you are traveling by air. Chicago's airports are recommending that people show up 3 hours before their flight is scheduled to leave.
