Memorial Day Weekend crowds are upon us.

The airport will be packed, the Ubers hard to find, and the hotels buzzing with visitors for a holiday weekend expected to break pandemic visitor records. According to Travelpulse data, Miami will be one of the five most popular destinations (no surprise).

Miami International Airport is anticipating a daily average of 110,000 travelers as of Thursday, making the holiday weekend the airport’s busiest since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
