Which U.S. cities will be the busiest this Thanksgiving, when should you travel and when should you avoid going to all those holiday sales? Travel website TripAdvisor has all those answers and more in its Thanksgiving Travel List.

The top three Thanksgiving destinations?

  1. NYC
  2. Las Vegas
  3. Chicago

The full Top 10 list is available online.

When will travelers be leaving for Thanksgiving celebrations? Most will actually be heading out Monday, Nov. 24 this year, with Wednesday, Nov. 26 coming in a close second. Nearly two-thirds of travelers will be coming back that Sunday, Nov. 29.

What about shopping? More than 6 in 10 of those surveyed said they’d be out on Thanksgiving day, but only 4 percent said they’d be shopping on the holiday. The rover team finds that latter number a little hard to believe, given the crowds it’s seen on TV the past couple years. We think some people just won’t admit to shopping on Thanksgiving for fear of being judged.

Of course, you could always just shop on Small Business Saturday and support local businesses, but a $9.99 waffle iron at Kohl’s. OH. MY. GOSH.
