"It's a lot of people that are traveling so we'll see," one local traveler said. 

But this holiday season some are choosing to stay put.

"I've finally smartened up and realized what a gift this is to be here in south Florida and I treasure every moment," Lynn Chvotkin said.

Instead her friends and family will visit south Florida for the holidays. Margo Kack says she will have visitors too.

"So, the fact that we can stay here and have our family come here and experience what it's like to have a south Florida Christmas is really awesome," Kack said.

AAA says the best time to travel is early in the morning the worst time to start a trip this holiday season is in the evening, specifically Dec. 22 from 3 to 5 p.m.
