What to do about protecting some of Arizona’s formerly hidden gems.
Thanksgiving Travel Expected To Increase Nationwide, Decrease In Arizona
Nationwide, Thanksgiving travel is expected to increase. According to the Triple-A travel forecast, approximately 47 million Americans will travel for Thanksgiving.
That is a 0.6 percent increase compared with last year, and the largest number since 2007. Compared with last year, 15 percent more Arizonans are choosing to fly, according to Linda Gorman from Triple-A.
“However, the majority of people are still choosing to drive,” Gorman said. “So I think that also speaks to low gas prices. We have not seen prices this low for the Thanksgiving holiday since 2008.”
In Arizona there is expected to be a 6.4 percent decrease overall in travelers, which goes against the national trend.
