When it comes to holiday travel, the later it gets the busier it gets; on the roads and at the airport. If you’re looking to beat the crowds, those who know say there’s one simple rule to follow; the earlier the better.
“I always travel in the morning on Thanksgiving so I never have to experience what happens in the afternoon.”
Peter bono is what you might call an experienced traveler.
“We decided to come 2 hours early. Usually we come about an hour and twenty or thirty minutes. This time we decided to give ourselves another 30 or 40 minutes and the lines aren't bad. ”

“My grandma. She actually is taking everyone. It's going to be a fun trip. ”
Carrie Hanshaw says as fun as it will be to visit the Bahamas, she's most thankful to be spending time with her family; the very reason people brave long lines and waits in airports across the county in the first place.
