Going Home for the Holidays

Going Home for the Holidays

Home for the holidays is more than just the title of a classic Christmas movie from the mid 90’s. The sentiment sparks feelings of excitement, anticipation, and nostalgia that brings joy to those who think about it. This year especially, we can all use a little more joy and hopefully going home for the holidays will do exactly that for you.

Going home for the holidays might also create some anxiety for some travelers. Planning the logistics can sometimes be daunting, especially for those who are new to an area. There are plenty of reasons why people living in the Upstate area of Greenville, Spartanburg, and Anderson would be heading elsewhere this holiday season.

College Students and Transplants Make Up Much of the Upstate Population

North and South Carolina are known for their many colleges that provide great value in education for students from all over the country and beyond. The out of state population at these renowned universities continues to grow. In just 20 years, the out of state enrollment at the University of South Carolina more than doubled. Almost half of its student body is now from out of state!

Not only does Charlotte, NC and the Upstate of SC have great colleges with students who will need a way to get home for the holidays, but they have also become a destination for young families from other parts of the country. An average of 30 people move to the Upstate every single day! All of these young professionals and families are looking for a way to get back to wherever it is their extended families are gathering this holiday season.

A Transportation Service Takes the Stress Out of Getting Home for the Holidays

Fortunately, the Upstate has a great option for anyone—from college students to young families with kids—to be reunited and make it home for the holidays comfortably. A chauffeured ground transportation service like Atchison Transportation Services has multiple means of getting you wherever you need to go safely and on time.
