1. Honolulu, Hawaii
If you want to get away from your family and spend some quality time chilling in a warm place – Honolulu is a great choice. It’s warm, it’s sunny, your family is nowhere in sight and you can still get a Thanksgiving feast at a quality restaurant if you wish.
2. Tuscon, Arizona
If a Thanksgiving feast if what you’re after – Tuscon, Arizona is the place for you. Most restaurants here offer an incredible Thanksgiving dinner, and some even have Thanksgiving buffets. Can you image? An all you can eat Thanksgiving buffet – yum!
3. New York, NY
New York is a great place to go with friends or to make some new friends. I mean, there’s a reason the TV show ‘FRIENDS’ was set in NY. It’s a place you’ll always have fun, plus you’ll get a chance to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade IRL instead of watching it on TV as per usual. This parade is a tradition stretching back to 1924 and never disappoints with excitement.
4. Fairbanks, Alaska
If you’re done with Fall and are already in the Christmas mood, you might want to go to Alaska. By the time it’s Thanksgiving it’s usually covered in snow and here’s the best part – you’ll get to see the Northern Lights. I’m in!
5. Fort Lauderdale, Florida
If you want to hit the beach before your Thanksgiving dinner – Fort Lauderdale is the place for you. And if you’re worried about gaining some pounds at the Thanksgiving gathering – consider taking part in the annual Fort Lauderdale Turkey Trot beforehand. Get up, meet the sun, go for a jog or walk on coast highway A1A; it assuages one’s guilt beautifully for the huge amount of food you will eat later on!
