Should I stay or should I go?

(WTOL) - It's that week off from school that kids look forward to each year. We're talking about Spring Break.

Some families are packing up the kids to get away. "We're going to go visit some family in Pennsylvania," Carol tells us.

AAA says you can expect families to drive to their destinations rather than fly. If this holiday goes the same route as Christmas break, when travel experts say flying was down.

Money was the main reason for the shift.

"One time, we took them down to Florida. But not right now because times are a little tougher. I think everybody's traveling a little less, just tightening their belt a little," said traveler Ben Cheri.

Even Carol said, "We certainly cut back a little bit, it's just good to get away for a short time and take a little driving trip."

Many others will just stay home. Michelle tells us, "I want it to get hot out, so I can just have fun. Go swimming, or something."

Brent Bucholz is going to paint some Easter eggs.
