Science tells us the Universe is traveling. Where's it going if the Universe is all there is?
Science tells us that the Universe is all that there is, that it is traveling and expanding at all times since the Big Bang.
It is believed that the universe is infinite, (although there is no actual proof) because scientists have discovered that the furthest part of the universe we can see today is not in fact how large the universe is. This is a question scientists are wondering as well and are having difficulty to find the answer too. We know for certain why the universe is expanding because it is seen from galaxy to galaxy but there are only theories to why it is expanding.
What was is the context of this question? The universe can only travel in the relative context of other universes if one accepts the multiverse idea. If however, it is cosmic acceleration being discussed, that is a far different idea. Parts of the cosmos are traveling relative on each other. Where is the universe traveling can be answered by contraction locally and expansive acceleration generally.
I take it you're referring to the "Dark Flow" study of a few years ago: http://news.discovery.com/space/dark-flow-universe.html
If this is true - and this study seems to show a motion of the universe in the directions of Centaurus and Hydra, from our perspective - it would indicate that the universe is not all there is, and that we indeed live in one universe of a multiverse.

Multi-verses: what are these, including our universe, expanding or sitting in?Even if ours is the only verse, it has to be expanding in something. If there are multi-verses, they must be sitting in something, some space...
