If you are not a fan of crowds, this weekend might be a good one to just stay home.

Las Vegas has been named the top travel destination in the United States for the Thanksgiving weekend.

According to AAA, we can expect about 300,000 visitors in Las Vegas this year. That is slightly up from last year.

That means that the airport and local roads are likely to be packed.

More than one million travelers are expected to pass through McCarran International Airport this week and Sunday is expected to be the busiest day.

Many of the visitors will likely be staying on the Las Vegas Strip or visiting it.
