"What if, today, we were grateful for everything?"
Thanksgiving is literally less than 48 hours away. The mad scramble to get a turkey and all the other food accessories for the feast has been well in motion since last week. People are excited to have some time off to share with their friends and families, maybe watch some football and yes, eat! Every one of us, I'm sure, has their plans in place and are pushing through this short week as fast as they possibly can. That's because this year most Southern Californians are said to be travelling according to the Automobile Club of Southern California, who are predicting that there will be a 3.1 increase in Thanksgiving excursions. They announced that 3.65 million residents are expected to take holiday trips and stated that this is "the highest number of travelers for Thanksgiving since 2007, when 3.99 million Southern California residents took holiday."
More Traveling Residents....We All Know What This Means!! Traffic!!!
A high percentage of people will be driving to their holiday destinations this week. So, be prepared to be stuck in some traffic if you cannot get out of town before everyone else. But, more traveling residents should be seen as a good thing, as well. Why, you might ask? Well, it is nice to see more and more people feeling good about making the decision to travel because it is a sign that we all may have a bit more spending money than we have had in the last decade. Although gas prices are averaging what they were this time last year, prices have still dropped since last week, which is another great incentive for folks to get out of town for the holiday weekend. Jeffrey Spring, a spokesperson for the Southern California Auto Club stated, that "price drops are good news for more than 3 million Southern Californians who will drive 50 miles or more to Thanksgiving holiday destinations and probably pay the lowest price since 2008, when Thanksgiving gas prices averaged about $2.20 per gallon."
So Where Is Everyone Going?
According to most survey's, the top 5 Southern Californian destinations are:
- Santa Barbara.
- San Francisco (number 2 destination nationwide).
- Grand Canyon.
- San Diego (number 3 destination nationwide).
- Las Vegas (number 1 destination nationwide).
