Las Vegas has been ranked as one of the top Thanksgiving destinations, according to a recent release by the AAA. Among other sunny destinations like California and Florida, Las Vegas will see some of the highest traffic numbers, which are up by 2.3 percent since last year. And most people are expected to be driving to their Thanksgiving destinations.
“The day before Thanksgiving is notoriously one of the most congested days on our roadways. Travelers should be prepared for long delays, especially in and around major metros,”
said Bob Pishue, transportation analyst at INRIX.
The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) has some tips for motorists this Thanksgiving week to avoid the worst of the typical Thanksgiving traffic, complete with a helpful infograph.
Looking at the infograph, Wednesday, traffic is the worst from 12am-2pm for people trying to reach their destination by Thanksgiving day. Saturday you should be avoiding the road from 12am-5pm and Sunday from 9am-5pm. Other times should see regular traffic, so plan accordingly.
If you’re looking to stay local, there are plenty of restaurants, buffets, and more doing Thanksgiving dinner, from Caesars Palace’s buffet which offers a huge array of international cuisine, to Virgil’s Real BBQ doing their smoked take on turkey.
Whatever you decide to do, we hope you have an amazing Thanksgiving.
