Posted: Updated:

People are hitting the road to make it to their Thanksgiving destinations, but this year is one of the busiest for travelers.

According to AAA, more than 55 million people will take a trip of 50 miles or more away from home this Thanksgiving. This is the second highest Thanksgiving travel volume since AAA began tracking in 2000.

A Westport man says it took three hours to get to Darien from John F. Kennedy International Airport Tuesday.

"You have to have patience," says Baxter Urist.
