Although they experience the rush in the holiday season as well, Thanksgiving is an occasion that is coupled with different events such as Halloween, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, and New Year. So you can only expect the chaos. But when you plan every detail, you can always avoid such issues with little effort.

Otherwise, you will face long queues and crowds heading back almost everywhere.
