With Thanksgiving weekend only a few weeks away, many people will be thinking about where to spend the holiday. If haven’t already booked your apartment rentals, here are some of the best locations for a great Thanksgiving experience.
New York City
The Big Apple is renowned across the globe for its Thanksgiving parade and festivities. The spectacular parade features huge balloons, decorated floats, marching bands, cheerleaders and the odd celebrity. You can also pick up some bargains during the Black Friday sales here.
This city might not be the warmest place to spend Thanksgiving, but it offers plenty of free attractions and activities throughout the long weekend. It begins with the lighting of the city’s Christmas tree and is followed by one of the biggest Thanksgiving parades in the country. On Friday, you can experience the Art Institute of Chicago’s wreathing of the lions, where the two statues are festooned with wreaths made of evergreen.
What better place is there to spend Thanksgiving than in a city that is steeped in American history? There are many attractions dedicated to commemorating some of the most influential people from history, including Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Every year, the president pardons one turkey at Mount Vernon.
Car aficionados will relish the opportunity to visit the San Francisco Auto Show, which runs from November 21 through 29. When you spend Thanksgiving here, you can also take a ride on one of the trolleys, go shopping at Fisherman’s Wharf, or see the Pier 39 sea lions.
