As Biden’s disastrous financial policies and record-high inflation continue to cause chaos – many Americans have been reining in their spending.
But one thing is certain – it isn’t stopping Americans from traveling during the holidays.
In fact, Thanksgiving travel is predicted to be at an all-time high – and here’s where people are headed.
Yet again, Orlando ranks as one of the top Thanksgiving destinations.
While there are “those people” who love the snow…
… there are the rest of us who can’t stand the cold.
So what better way to spend Thanksgiving than a weekend in the Sunshine State.
In addition to the perks of warm weather and sunshine, many families flock to Disney World and Universal Studios to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year…
… surrounded by thousands of other tourists who have the same idea, ha!
Theme Park Center reported:
“Thanksgiving at Universal Studios Florida is one of the busiest days of the year.
In fact, Orlando consistently ranks in the top five Thanksgiving destinations each year and Universal Studios is certainly near the top of many people’s to-do lists.
Holiday decorations will be already be displayed come Thanksgiving and Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s will also be performing daily, making Universal Studios a popular Thanksgiving day destination for tourists and locals alike.”
New York City, New York
I know, we’ve knocked New York City pretty hard over the past few years.
However I will say – if you ever wanted to visit New York City, even if just to check it off your bucket list – the holiday season is the perfect time to do so.
Truly – New York City is the city that never sleeps.
If you want the ultimate kickoff to your holiday season – you won’t be disappointed in NYC.
Of course, there’s the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade – a tradition that has held strong since 1924.
While more than 50 million viewers watch it from the comfort of their home – you can see it firsthand!
From the Rockefeller Tree Lighting Festival to ice-skating in Central Park – there is something magical about spending Thanksgiving (and Christmas) in New York City.
But be prepared – it is COLD!
And don’t expect the sweetness of hospitality like you’d get in places like South Carolina. The people in New York are … well… let’s just say they are blunt and tell it like it is.
While the glistening lights and massive Christmas tree displays may be beautiful – nothing beats visiting home and sitting around the family table eating grandma’s famous cranberry and sage stuffing.
There’s something nostalgic about visiting family during the holidays and reliving childhood traditions.
All the wonder and beauty in the world doesn’t compare to the love exchanged between family members – and yes – that includes even your crazy liberal uncle who always fights with your “anti-woke” aunt who still wears her Trump hat with pride.
But whatever you do this Thanksgiving – whether it’s ice-skating in Central Park, basking in the Florida sun, or popping a cold one with your liberal Uncle Steve and bonding over the football game – make it a good one!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families from all of us at Proud American Traveler.
