States with least coronavirus cases.

After a four year run, New York City has been dethroned as the top turkey holiday in the U.S. Now, Seattle, Washington has recently been crowned as the No. 1 Thanksgiving destination in the U.S.

In a recent report, Allianz Partners, an insurance company, reviewed travel plans around Thanksgiving for outbound flights scheduled between Saturday, November 21 and Tuesday, December 1, 2020. The company went through the online booking process of airfare for partners offering Allianz Travel Insurance to generate itineraries for roundtrip flights. In total, 632,757 itineraries were analyzed, and Seattle was ranked as the No. 1 Thanksgiving destination in the U.S.

Here’s the top 10 domestic destinations for Thanksgiving holiday.

  2. New York
  3. Los Angeles
  4. Dallas
  5. Boston
  6. Orlando
  7. Phoenix
  8. Fort Lauderale

  10. Las Vegas

For month, New York City has enforced a 14-day quarantine. Also, the wildly popular Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been canceled this year. These are two reasons why New York City could have dropped in its ranking.
