Forget about an autumnal nip in the air: Americans are looking for sun this Thanksgiving.
Florida and California are the most popular destinations for Americans flying for the holiday, according to data provided to CNBC by travel website Priceline.com. Almost half of the states don't appear on anyone's top five.
Priceline.com ran the numbers on the top five flight destinations for residents of each state over the week of Thanksgiving to see where people are headed. Residents departing from local airports in different states were excluded (so New Yorkers flying out of Newark aren't counted as spending the holiday in New Jersey).
Forty-seven states and Washington, D.C., have California as a top-five destination, according to the data, and travelers from 43 states made Florida a hot spot.
