Will you travel for the holidays to see friends or family this year?

Travel looks different for everyone this year, and we’re sure some of your plans have changed. We’ve heard from many of you the last few months about canceled trips and postponed trips. What about the holidays, which are quickly approaching?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, the time we travel to see friends or family (or both) and celebrate the holidays. What do your holidays look like this year? Will you still travel (perhaps you’ll drive instead of fly?) Will family still travel to you?

Please tell us in the poll below and leave a comment too, telling us about your travel plans. We appreciate it!

I’m a UPS driver so we never get to travel in December.

Although I answered that we will be sticking to home this year, we will actually be in south Florida as snowbirds. So I guess you could say we will be sticking close to the RV. We will see family (but not as a big group) prior to heading south and will be there for the holidays.

Having to make a long 3 day drive in the RV since I don’t want to fly this year. Will probably go without water since it will have been winterized. Bummer!

For over ten years now I am Santa Claus at a local Christmas tree farm with a steam train that runs each day from Thanksgiving to December 24th. And I do venues all around the Central Valley of California.
We travel all year until November when I return to calif. to don the red and white uniform of Santa once again. Over the years we have picked up a large following of regular families that depend on us for making their holiday a bit brighter.
So in essence we do travel to see family and friends each and every year and will continue to do so as long as the man upstairs allows it!

I’m staying home because my whole family is here. 7 brothers and sisters, 3 kids, 7 grandchildren, my mother and a passel of nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews.

Just a short trip to celebrate and visit with family while staying in RV

We’ll be home for the holidays but will leave shortly thereafter for the Valley in South Texas, where we park host at a state park. Since we live in our fifth wheel, home is where we park it!

we will be in our motorhome and will definitely travel to stay at places where we have other RV friends. We will be mindful of social distancing but that can be easily accomplished and still enjoy. We will not see as many family members as it is a little harder to do so when on the road under these conditions.

Sorry to say we have a very small family left, thankfully our son bought the house next door so we see him often.

Rammer, It is interesting that we have a very similar circumstance. Very little family left and we have our daughter living next door.

We are leaving warm sunny S/W Florida in the beginning if November to cold and dreary S/E Pennsylvania. We plan to return to our home in Florida the first week of January. I would rather stay and be warm, but her sisters and brother live up north and a happy wife is a happy life. So we will be spending the holidays there.

Wll be home and with our family because we all live near each other. As far as extended family, no we never travel to see them or visa versa during the holidays. We left the cold and snow decades ago and have no desire to go back to it. We were supposed to go to a wedding in the Fall and up in the NE but it has been postponed due to the travel restrictions in that state.

Yes we will drive to them, that’s better than them coming here.

To Kansas for Thanksgiving. Possibly to Colorado for Christmas. Who knows for sure where we will be.

We will fly back to the Great White North this Christmas season, but will likely stay at a nearby hotel instead of with family. Pretty much as of now, things are still up in the airas to when and where. Strange things indeed

We will travel to see family, just not near the holidays.

I realy don’t like people for the Holidays. Haven’t been fond of Christmas since I was a kid. Do not do well in the days with short day light,

Will be at home, as usual with family. Will head south after New years day for about 4 months.

We never travel for the holidays as the majority of our families live nearby.
