See America lit up, not by lights, people having sex, McDonalds nor any of those other crazy metrics but this time, by travel in America during Thanksgiving with the Foursquare travel infographic. The chart by Foursquare was made by calculating people's check-ins across the nation, resulting in this beautiful depiction of America's frontiers. Flying, train and automobile were used and although differentiating normal car rides with vacation travel is difficult, it still gives a neat visual of the country's major highways.

The Foursquare travel infographic also shows a time line. Interestingly enough, there is a higher spike before Thanksgiving than there is before Christmas time, according to the Foursquare data. This is an amazing piece of work done by the social media company and will be extremely interesting to see all country's lit up by holiday spirited travel!
