If you haven’t made your Thanksgiving plans yet you may want to consider finding a travel date and escaping the traditional family frenzy. Swap the tiresome meal preparation and football for a vacation exploring somewhere new. Here are a few Thanksgiving Travel Date Destinations that are sure to be memorable.
Enjoy sun, sand and surf during a relaxing island getaway. These few extra days off work need to be used at your utmost advantage and Maui is the perfect place. Try a fun activity such as swimming with the sea turtles or snorkeling. It’ll make for a great story upon your return, not to mention the fun underwater social media pictures.
New York City
There’s something extra festive about seeing the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in person. Bundle up with your travel companion and find a good viewing spot along the route to enjoy the show! Each year, Macy’s brings out surprise celebrities, Broadway stars and performing artists for an over-the-top spectacle.
If you aren’t a fan of crowds, consider staying at one of the hotels along the parade route so you can watch from the comfort of your own room.
Santa Barbara, California
This city has been hailed the crown jewel of the American Riviera. The city has one of the best year-round climates and an abundance of local experiences, perfect for a travel date! There are multiple restaurants offering traditional Thanksgiving dinner, and plenty that aren’t as well, whatever your preference! Take a leisurely stroll along the beach or venture to State Street for some shopping to conclude your trip.
Vegas can be a great place if you’re wanting to escape families. With tons of luxury accommodation options and world-class restaurants, you don’t even have to leave your hotel for anything. Many properties and restaurants offer inexpensive full course Thanksgiving meals and the shows offer two-for-one tickets during this slower than normal tourist season.
No matter what Thanksgiving Day plans you decide on, the most important part of the holiday is to spend it with someone special!
