Normally you being there in plenty of time should ensure you are the first-came, and excess passengers would be put on after the rest of you. However, this is Greyhound we're talking about, and to further complicate, this is Thanksgiving, the day of the year rules just don't apply ;) According to one source: As the ticket policy suggests, Greyhound ...

Your best bet is to travel on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday) -- the airports won't be too crowded then, and fares are usually substantially cheaper. Tuesday might also be a cheap day, but try to avoid Wednesday at all costs -- it is one of the busiest travel days of the year in the US, if not the most. Since most people are traveling home to be with their ...

Mark's answer is good. Here's my personal experience with Greyhound. Just to be clear, the time on the ticket is completely meaningless. You show up, find out which gate your route boards from, get in that line. When the bus comes they let however many people they have room for on, if there isn't room for you that means you wait for the next bus on ...

It's a holiday shopping weekend, so you should expect traffic in any city concentrated around shopping areas such as malls, as well as heavier traffic on arterial roads. And Manhattan of course will be Manhattan, but you won't be there long. If you just follow Google Maps it will advise you to take the Holland Tunnel out of the city, which ought to be light ...

You won't find outdoor celebrations, fireworks displays, or anything like that to the same extent that you would on July 1st or Victoria Day.

Performances take place at the Official Viewing area, which is along 34th St at the end of the parade route. It is where the TV camera crews set up, the VIPs hang out and is so crowded you are better off watching the performances later on your TV.

Based on what I can see from the websites the only museum that doesn't explicitly state that they are closed on Thanksgiving Day is NYC Folk Art Museum though it is quite likely that they are. As far as car rental is concerned the major car rental companies like Avis, Hertz, Budget have offices open on Thanksgiving in NYC but most of their Manhattan ...

I'm going to answer my own question (partially) here, because I went to Six Flags Magic Mountain on Thanksgiving Day this year. It was moderately busy, almost entirely with young adults. There were very few children there. The lines on the more extreme/newer rides were long - 45 minutes or so. The lines on the more moderate rides (e.g. Revolution, an older ...

The ferry, Liberty Cruises doesn't have the schedule published for the month of November, however, you can reserve tickets for November 26th, which is this year's Thanksgiving day. And both islands: Ellis and Liberty are open every day except Christmas, so it would stand to reason that if Liberty Island cannot be reached without a ferry the ferry must be ...
