With Texans gearing up for the upcoming holiday travel season, now just weeks away, TripAdvisor has released a new survey on travel habits.

According to the survey, nearly 80% of Texans plan on visiting family and friends with nearly 60% watching sporting events during their stays. Rounding out the survey, 45% plan to take a Black Friday shopping trip, up from 12% this past season.

However, getting there is half the battle. KTRH travel expert Linda de Sosa says despite rising airfare costs people still plan on flying, “in Houston, it takes a long time to get anywhere; which is why I assume many people choose to fly.”

In the digital age, more and more travelers are turning to mobile devices to book flights and accommodations. Results of the TripAdvisor survey show 57% of Americans now use their tablet computers and phones to make reservations.
