Your Thanksgiving plans are probably already set in stone, and we’re guessing the majority of you have already been driven crazy by your family.

You sound like you’re part of the 45% who would rather bail on these holiday get-togethers and go out on an adventure on your own.

A survey of 2,000 Americans conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Apple Vacations found that 45% of us would rather go on a solo vacation that get together with friends or family for the holidays.

According to SWNS Digital, a lot of us are going to need a vacation after the holidays, too.

77% of people said they are going to want to get away after the holidays are through.  And 27% say their idea of a vacation does NOT include their families.

49% of people admitted to needing a break from their partner, and 46% think they'll need a break from their own kids!
