AAA says, the number of Georgia travelers hitting the road this holiday weekend will jump 7% from last year.
Nearly 6 million people are expected to travel in the South Atlantic region next weekend.
Vacation-friendly Tybee Island already is at 90% occupancy for the Labor Day weekend.
Amy Gaster of the island's Tourism Council says, Tybee is having a record summer for vacation and room rentals.
"And we are seeing visitors with license tags from places that aren't as typical," Gaster says. "I think people are coming from a little bit further away than normal, such as Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama."
Tybee hotel stays are up 17% from last summer.
Gaster says, she thinks, a rebounding economy and the BP oil spill both played a big part.
AAA says, overall travel in the US should be up by 10% Labor Day weekend, with travelers spending more but staying closer to home.
