Contact Us About Your Fundraiser

Let’s face it — after missing out on all of the festivities and get-togethers of the 2020 holiday season, many of us can’t wait to hit the road and head over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house (or whoever else’s house you might be visiting this Thanksgiving).

We certainly won’t be alone on our 2021 holiday road trip as, according to AAA, 48.3 million people are expected to travel by car. And even with gas prices expected to be around $3.35 a gallon on Thanksgiving Day, that’s not going to stop most of us from traveling. We’ll just have to budget for it.

With all that traffic on the road, however, it also increases the chances of something literally putting a dent in your travel plans. With that in mind, Stuckey’s wants to offer these road-trip tips to help you have a safe and enjoyable trip over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Before You Go

Become a Morning Person

As much as possible, you should try to avoid driving during peak hours of holiday travel. Experts suggest driving on Wednesday after 9 p.m. and in the mornings over the holiday weekend. What’s the worst time to travel? Between noon and 8 p.m., the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

But Give Yourself a Break

Take regular rest stops if you’re traveling long distances. (We suggest stopping a certain iconic roadside stop famous for its fine pecan candies.) Get out of the car, stretch your legs, grab a snack, and enjoy the fresh, crisp fall air! This will help keep you awake and alert during your trip. (Well, that, a cup of coffee and a pecan log roll.)

Patience Is a Road Trip Virtue

You can be as patient as Job, but heavy traffic can be frustrating for just about anyone. What’s important is to not let that frustration turn you into a turkey. Don’t speed, tailgate, or make unsafe lane changes.

Don’t Drink and Drive

These are just a few simple tips that can help you have a safe holiday road trip. In the meantime, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving from Stuckey’s!
