More than 28 percent of American families plan to take three or more vacations this year, a 13 percent jump over 2016.

About 70 percent of families say they will take one or two vacations, and more than a third will take a vacation at least 50 miles from home, according to a AAA travel survey.

The most popular vacations are road trips (79 percent), national parks (51 percent), theme parks (40 percent), international destinations (33 percent), guided tours (22 percent) and ocean cruises (20 percent).

Although gas prices are 47 cents higher than they were at this time last year, 10 percent more families said they expect to take road trips this year.
