Whether you’re planning to fly solo, a company of 2 or traveling with family in tow, Thanksgiving is all about creating lifetime memories. As the Thanksgiving is around the corner, we have chosen 7 Best places to spend Thanksgiving that will guarantee to serve you a stress-free experience.
1. Plymouth, Massachusetts
This is a place that symbolized the conventional tradition of giving thanks. Here in this town, you can spend your day at Plymouth Plantation with role-playing pilgrims who re-enact events from 17th-century life. This plantation is open from March to the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
2. Motu Teta, Tahiti
If you want to spend your Thanksgiving as far away from your relatives as possible, better to book Tahiti’s Motu Teta, a private island located in the center of the South Pacific Ocean on the Rangiroa atoll. In this island, you would just be enjoying the serene peace and natural aquatic beauty doing absolutely nothing which might be one of your favorite pastimes. Or else you may go for a more adventurous midnight lobster hunt. But don’t get too close to crusty because your private staff would prepare and serve him as your Thanksgiving meal beachside.
3. Plantation Vacation
On the occasion of Thanksgiving, you may opt for a seated dinner or a serve-yourself buffet as the reservations start in June. If you not able to get any table there are still plenty of things to do at Plimouth Plantation. You can enjoy a ride on the Mayflower II, which is a replica of one of the ships that landed at Plymouth in 1620. Or you can also visit the Wampanoag Homesite, a living museum where you are hosted and welcomed exclusively by Native People descended from Wampanoag and other Native Nations.
4. Casa Marina, Key West
Casa Marina hosts the International Sand Art Competition and also has introduced a unique Thanksgiving tradition befitting of the quirky town that is also called home to Ernest Hemingway. Every year artists from all over the world form breath-taking sculptures right on the sandy shores of the Waldorf Astoria property.
5. Castles of Sand
The renowned veteran sculptor Marianne van den Broek started the competition, which assembles artists from places such as Mexico, the Netherlands, the United States, and Canada. You can watch the sculptures taking shape all weekend long from the beachfront balconies of Casa Marina.
The Thanksgiving Feast at this Farm is one of the most exclusive holiday excursions we found. Located on the island of St. Kitts, Belle Mont Farm hosts a farm-to-table dinner with over 90 percent of the meal’s ingredients coming directly from the farm. One- to four-bedroom cottages are also available where you can stay and this experience is all-inclusive. The Belle Mont Farm Feast is organized at a fascinating table in the center of the property’s organic farm. Guests are welcomed and encouraged to forage for the meal’s bounty alongside the chefs, farmers and other travelers.
7. La Posada, Santa Fe
La Posada in Santa Fe is few steps from the capital city’s Historic Square and it is designed as a structure dating back to the 1880s. You can expect menu offerings with a southwestern flare. You will not only like the idea of having someone else doing the cooking, but you will also like the thought of spending your holiday in a place known for its peaceful surroundings.
