The government tells us more people travel for the holidays than at any other time. But do our readers agree? Is “home for the holidays” still a thing? Complete our holiday travel survey to let us know – and we’ll thank you with an entry to our Ricardo luggage giveaway!
Is Home for the Holidays Still a Thing? Complete our Holiday Travel Survey!
“It’s beginning to look a lot like….” Well, you know how that goes. Yes, we’ve just started raking leaves, planting mums and watching football games. But here at TravelingMom, we’re looking ahead to the holidays….and of course that means holiday travel!
According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, the holidays (the time between the day before Thanksgiving and the day after New Year’s, as defined by the web site) are the busiest travel time in our country. In the six days (from the Wednesday before to the Monday after) of the Thanksgiving holiday period, travel to destinations 50 miles or more from home increased by 54 percent in 2016. And despite the crowded airports we see on TV, 91 percent of the holiday travel is done by car or other personal vehicle. That’s a lot of people hitting the road to share turkey with family!
