Zeke Hilback, 2, played in the grass in front of his family's camper in Jay Cooke State Park in Duluth on Wednesday.

A road trip is in Scott McBride's plans for Memorial Day weekend, and he can't wait.

Some 37 million Americans, many of them vaccinated and weary of being cooped up as the COVID-19 pandemic ebbs, are taking to the roads, rails and skies this holiday weekend - the unofficial start of summer.

The fully vaccinated McBride is driving to Decatur, Ill., to visit his parents (also vaccinated) for the first time since the COVID outbreak struck. "It's a slice of freedom we haven't had in some time," he said.
