According to AAA, travel is expected to break a record this year, with one-third of the country traveling for the holidays.
Millions of travelers are expected at DFW and Love Field over the next few days, with 6.7 million Americans flying across the country.
"We just went to the airport and coming back, it took forever on 635 and 75 it's a mess definitely," said a traveler.
Ninety-one percent of people will be traveling by car for the holidays so the roads won't look any better.

Even those staying in North Texas for the holiday couldn't escape the traffic as streets around North Park were filled with shoppers.
"Last minute shopping like always," said another driver. "If y'all be coming out to north park, be careful."
