AAA: Thanksgiving travel to be busiest since 2005

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

This year's Thanksgiving weekend travel will be the busiest since 2005, according to AAA.

About 51 million people are expected to travel this year, with many of them beginning their journeys on Tuesday.

AAA says the number is in part due to wage increases and more days off from work.

AAA says the best time to leave for your Thanksgiving destination is the morning of, and the best time to return is Sunday morning.
