This holiday season, more Michigan families are staying closer to home.

Triple-A Michigan estimates one point two million Michiganians will travel more than 100 miles from home during Thanksgiving week. That's down from last year.

Auto club spokeswoman Nancy Cain says she suspects the economy is behind the drop in travel.

Meanwhile, Michigan State University's Tourism Center projects an increase of eight percent in holiday-season visitors to the state from surrounding areas.
