For a summary and for your comfort, read on:

If you are driving out of town for the holidays, start driving on Tuesday (if possible), you will avoid more traffic prone Wednesday. For the drive back home choose Sunday instead of Saturday, which tends to be more busy.

Holiday Hours are here! Google Maps now has holiday hours for businesses. Be sure to check the business hours when searching for last minute needs, be it pies, ham or liquor! Check the closing time, it is much more convenient than getting there to find out it is closed and then having to search for another one.

  1. People searched for buffet restaurants most on Thanksgiving Day, in fact it was numero uno search term on Google Maps for past years. But, in Chicago….we searched for bars, indeed holidays are too much for many to handle plus Wednesday before Thanksgiving is a very big night our here (Chicago)…maybe the searches just used after midnight trend and got those results?
  2. Electronic stores, malls and outlet malls, appliances and Christmas trees are all on the Black Friday shopping list, according to the Google Maps statistics from past few years.
