The best destinations to spend a dreamy Thanksgiving Weekend
November 4, 2020
Thanksgiving is traditionally a time to enjoy your loved ones at home. You spend the day cooking turkey, baking pies, and watching football, then you sit down around the dining table with your family and friends to express gratitude. But after almost nine months of sheltering at home and making most of your own meals, why not let someone else do all the work for a change?
Traveling for Thanksgiving doesn’t mean giving up all of your traditions. You can still have the delicious turkey, the pies, and play or watch football, but from a luxurious and sustainable destination. Here are our favorite Thanksgiving weekend escapes in the middle of nature and far from the crowds!
