New Jersey residents will travel that far for Thanksgiving, study says
There are a lot of things to be thankful for in New Jersey:
⚫ Our amazing pizza and bread
⚫ Distinctive coastline
⚫The truth is that we don’t have to get out of our car to fill our gas tank
Thanksgiving though? Many Garden Staters seem grateful for their mothers’ home cooking.
According to a recent study by Gunther Media, New Jersey residents are willing to travel hours for their family’s Turkey Day cookout. Just how long on average? I’ll get to that….
The main motivating factor was turkey, with 62% of participants saying this was what interested them most.
Research has also shown that what appeals to those traveling on holiday is the pumpkin pie (my personal favorite, along with 24% of respondents) and the filling (the favorite dish of 10% of those surveyed, and much better than the odd-looking canned cranberry sauce). ).
Gunter surveyed 3,000 participants to come to their conclusion. According to the study:
The results paint a vivid picture of American devotion to family and feasting: The average American is willing to embark on a 4.6-hour trip to get a taste of home.
We New Jerseyans are, on average, willing to travel 3.7 hours to attend a homemade Thanksgiving feast.
Beyond the nutritional aspect:
The survey also revealed that Americans’ favorite after-dinner pastimes include sitting on the couch to play some soccer, lining the streets for parades, taking a well-deserved nap, or plotting the best routes for Black Friday sales — all of which are a favorite act in the great Thanksgiving pageant. .
No matter how far you travel this Thanksgiving, I hope you have a great one!
