Close to 112 million Americans are hitting the road, skies and rails this week, according to a travel survey from The Vacationer.

Below you’ll find a bevy of new opportunities to excite even the most stressed of seasoned travelers. So take a deep breath, stop refreshing your boarding time and peruse this week’s offerings.
