PHILADELPHIA -

Nearly 80 percent of people in our area say Hurricane Sandy didn't change their summer plans, according to a new survey by AAA.

However, some travelers say they may visit a different town, if their usual spot still isn't open.

And half of New Jerseyans say they will make a conscious effort to support shore tourism and local businesses.

As for the approaching Memorial Day weekend, AAA estimates that 404,000 Philadelphia area residents will travel 50 miles or more from home, unchanged relative to 2012.

Of those traveling in the area, 90 percent plan to drive to their destination. And 22 percent of those Memorial Day weekend travelers plan to visit the Jersey Shore.
