People’s travel habits and interests on Thanksgiving vary by state.
Google Maps recently compiled data for a report about people’s plans for the holidays. The new report revealed what people are searching for during the holiday season, including entertainment and food trends across major cities.
The report also revealed the locations people search for on Google on Thanksgiving.
According to the report, Utahns will often search the phrase “scenic spot” on turkey day.
For comparison, Nevada will search for “ranch,” while Colorado searches for “car stereo store.” Idaho residents often search the phrase “tourist attraction.”
Department stores lead the entire nation, likely because they offer some of the best discounts on Black Friday, which is the day after Thanksgiving.
But according to Google, department stores searches are common throughout the year, not just on Thanksgiving. Ham shops are the second-most popular on the map.
The United States is expected to see the highest amount of travel volume for Thanksgiving since 2005, according to data from AAA.
In total, AAA expects 50.9 million Americans to travel 50 miles or more from home for the holiday, which is a 3.3 percent increase from last year.
“Thanksgiving kicks off the start of a busy holiday season, and more thankful Americans will travel to spend time with friends and family this year,” Bill Sutherland, AAA senior vice president, Travel and Publishing, said in a company press release. “A strong economy and labor market are generating rising incomes and higher consumer confidence, fueling a strong year for the travel industry, which will continue into the holiday season.”
