Thanksgiving is almost here, but before you can sit down at the dinner table and enjoy tons of turkey and wine, you have to head home during one of the year’s busiest travel times.
Last year, AAA predicted that nearly 49 million Americans would travel at least 50 miles in order to make it to their Thanksgiving dinners (and to be home for the long weekend). That’s a jump of nearly 1 million travelers from the year before.
So how do you know when exactly you should leave to be in the lightest traffic? Well, what better resource to ask than internet giant Google Maps.
Google Maps recently released its traffic data and trends to help keep commuters informed ahead of their treks home.
