You likely have enough data and you can do a forecast. You may also want to consider population growth/demographic data from the spatial area you cover - I've lived in two cities where the population was growing very fast during certain periods and that results in increased visits as well. I would probably start with the basics, moving averages and proc arima.

Thank you Reeza. That is  something interesting to incorporate a population growth.

Do you have anything link /articles to share. I would love to explore more.
