Resort Thanksgiving Deals

Thanksgiving is often a traditional holiday spent at home, together with the family. But for those looking for new Thanksgiving traditions, Destination Hotels & Resorts is offering several Thanksgiving packages at their resorts around the country.

Terranea Resort outside Los Angeles is arranging a Thanksgiving Feast on Nov. 28, where guests can enjoy a buffet-style dinner of traditional Thanksgiving menu items, for the price of $90 per adult and $45 for children ages 5 to 10.

The luxury resort Eden Roc at Miami Beach, Fla., offers a special "spa to bar" hotel package for the holiday season, available until Dec. 1, 2013. The package includes a "Hot Roc" massage — a combination of hot stone and Swedish massage — at the resort’s Elle spa, followed by a complimentary Hot Toddy cocktail.

In Charleston, S.C., Wild Dunes Resort offers guests a "luxury experience with [a] Southern hospitality twist" for Thanksgiving, according to a press release. From Nov. 26 to 29, a Thanksgiving Festival will be held at the resort, with events such as oyster-shucking, live music, and live viewing of the holiday classic A Charlie Brown Christmas. At the resort's spa, a "Pumpkin Enzyme Peel & Latte" offer includes a facial of pumpkin pulp purées, paired with a pumpkin latte for a feeling of fall.

Wild Dunes Resort also offers a Thanksgiving dinner delivery service with food for eight to 10 people, including a whole roasted turkey, cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans with toasted pecans, glazed baby carrots, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes with brown sugar and marshmallows, dinner rolls, and pumpkin and apple pies — all delivered to the guest's lodge or house for $250.

20 Best Places to Go for Thanksgiving in America

These towns may be small, but they're big on holiday charm.

At this point in 2020, we all have a serious case of wanderlust. Many of us will forgo the annual trip to Grandma's house for Thanksgiving, but that doesn't mean we can't dream of traveling to some picturesque destinations! Whether small town charm, big city lights, or something in between are your thing, we've rounded up a list of locations for everyone. If you can't get home this year or you and your immediate family need some time to decompress outside of the same four walls, there's a spot for you on this list. Sure, you don't want to miss the Thanksgiving menu with Grandma's pumpkin pie recipes and all the traditional Thanksgiving side dishes, but a short road trip, when done safely, could be just what you need to clear your head. And if you rent a house or condo, you can stop at a local grocery store and cook up your own feast. Treat your family to a brief escape as an early Christmas gift, or sneak off with your sweetie for some quiet time. Seeing someplace new often gives you perspective and helps you reconsider all the blessings you do enjoy in your life. We promise you'll be grateful you explored one of these charming Thanksgiving towns. If you do decide to travel, we suggest you make note of your destination's cancellation policy, just in case something unexpected arises. Here are our top picks for quick getaways this Thanksgiving.

Lake Placid isn't just picturesque, idyllic, and peaceful (hence the name!) it's also a lot of fun around the holidays. Fish, hike, bike, or camp in the area, or visit the Lake Placid Olympic Museum (the Winter Olympics were held here in 1932 and 1980). While snow isn't a given, it is a possibility here this time of year, so pack your winter coat and gloves!.

It's not exactly a tiny town, but Park City still boasts all the appeal of a town half its size&mdashand the Utah city is where it's at come Thanksgiving time. Take a bobsled ride, enjoy window shopping, or curl up by the fire at one of the town's amazing resorts.

It may be known as the "Christmas Capital of Texas," but it's also a heck of a lot of fun around Thanksgiving. Grapevine offers beautiful holiday decorations and a Light Show Spectacular for kids of all ages.

Learn the history of this working seaport, explore the local boutiques, or visit Strawbery Banke Museum, which covers 300 years of American history on ten acres. Don't forget a lobster dinner while you're in town!

How does a tropical paradise sound for Thanksgiving this year? The temperatures have settled down so it's balmy and lovely this time of year. Go diving and snorkeling, kayaking, swim with the dolphins, or just walk around and enjoy the ambience of this charming town.

Known as the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is a stunning destination! With pretty beaches, mountains, and nearby vineyards (yes, please!), it has everything you need for a relaxing, romantic weekend getaway, any time of year.

This scenic valley has plenty to offer every member of the family: Cavern tours, historic attractions, museums, and antiquing. If you're in the mood for pampering yourself, stay at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs for the ultimate luxury experience. They've been welcoming guests to this mountain retreat since 1778.

Don't discount it based on size: There's always something going on in this town with German roots. Visit the local distilleries and breweries, check out one of the more than a dozen art galleries, or tour (and do a tasting!) at one of the nearby 100 wineries in the Hill Country.

This beautiful coastal town is delightful in fall when the sultry summer temperatures have faded. There's plenty of hospitality, too, amid the history of this southern lady. Visit Old Fort Jackson, window shop one of the many boutiques or art galleries, and stroll through the historic Bonaventure Cemetery.

You've probably used one or two of Pioneer Woman's recipes for holiday meals in the past. Why not trek to her hometown for a truly tasty Thanksgiving? While you're there, check out The Pioneer Woman Mercantile and stay at The Boarding House (a cowboy-luxury hotel!). There's also beautiful wildlife nearby at the the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve and Osage Hills State Park.

Winterset is the Covered Bridge Capital of Iowa. Meander through the countryside to see these historic gems (which inspired the book and movie, The Bridges of Madison County with Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep), and don't miss the Iowa Quilt Museum. The town's other claim to fame is being the birthplace of John Wayne, with the only museum in the world here dedicated to this Hollywood icon.

Maine is gorgeous in the summer, but it's even better in the fall and early winter. The weather's still mild, and it's far less crowded-- so you won't have to wait in line for another lobster roll or cup of chowder! Kennebunkport has tons of cute shops lining the walkable downtown area, or drive by the Bush estate and beautiful St. Ann's Historic Church. No visit's complete without a stroll on lovely Goose Rocks beach. For a cozy stay, book a room at the charming Inn at English Meadows Inn, just a few blocks from the center of everything.

Known as "The Folk Music Capital of the World," the town is bordered by the Blue Mountain Range of the Ozark Mountains. Mountain View boasts beautiful B&Bs, live folk music, and the incredible Blanchard Springs Caverns.

What better time to experience the small-town setting of HGTV's Home Town in real life than during the holiday season? Take a stroll downtown, on charming brick streets beneath string lights, stopping at storefronts, including show hosts Erin and Ben Napier's Laurel Mercantile, for Small Business Saturday (held the Saturday after Thanksgiving each year).

With its perfectly preserved 19th-century buildings, this Midwestern hamlet looks as if it's frozen in time. About 85 percent of the town is a national historic district. Fall brings an explosion of colors to the surrounding rolling hills and valleys. Visit the historic attractions, browse one-of-a-kind boutiques on Main Street, and save enough time for a stop at the local watering hole, Blaum Bros. Distilling Co .

Known for its iconic holiday celebrations, this West Coast town kicks off the festivities Thanksgiving weekend with Christkindlmarkt, a Bavarian-style Christmas Market. Visit the town's distilleries and breweries or the wineries and cideries, or check out the shopping full of unique boutiques full of cuckoo clocks, music boxes, beer steins and other Bavarian treasures.

Situated on the border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this small Southern destination is a picturesque place to celebrate your favorite fall holiday. Hole up in a cozy log cabin, chalet, or historic bed and breakfast. Burn off that turkey and stuffing by hiking to waterfalls, horseback-riding through wooded trails, or taking the aerial tramway to Ober Gatlinburg for ice skating, skiing, or snow tubing. Finally, cheers to another year of gratitude at one of the area wineries, breweries, and distilleries.

Plimoth Plantation, a re-creation of the original 17th Century colony, is the ultimate Thanksgiving destination. Walk around the English Village, the Plimoth Grist Mill, the Wampanoag Homesite, and more. You'll have a new appreciation for our history.

If you're thankful for nature, why not spend Thanksgiving in the heart of Colorado's Rocky Mountains and Rocky Mountain National Park? There's nothing more awe-inspiring than the grandeur of these mountains. If hiking's not your thing, there's also fishing, wildlife watching tours, and an aerial tramway.

This area has more than four centuries of history to explore! In the greater Williamsburg region, you'll find colonial-era town of Williamsburg, the American Revolution Museum in Yorktown, and the Historic Jamestowne. Plenty of great eateries and wineries abound in the region as well.

9 Incredible Places To Celebrate Thanksgiving If You Don&rsquot Want To Stay Home

Thanksgiving is one of the busiest (and most expensive) times of year to travel, and while going home can be nice, we&rsquore exploring different options this year. From relaxing beach getaways to historic destinations, we&rsquore about to spice Thanksgiving up.

Feel like a kid without being totally surrounded by your family when you spend Thanksgiving at Disneyland. The world-class chefs at the Disneyland Hotel will prepare an all-you-can-eat feast worthy of giving thanks featuring Thanksgiving classics and a variety of starters and desserts. When you&rsquore ready to start digesting, venture down to the park (since it&rsquos open year-round) and hit your favorite rides. But maybe avoid the spinning tea cups&hellip

From politics to your relationship status, Thanksgiving with the family is always a gamble, but you&rsquore guaranteed to hit the jackpot by spending Thanksgiving in Vegas. Visiting during the off-peak season means you&rsquore sure to find great deals on hotels and resorts. Come Thanksgiving day, dine at some of the world&rsquos nicest restaurants and burn off the calories by shopping luxury goods on Black Friday.

Whether you want to hit the slopes or just enjoy a book by the fire, the charming mountain village of Keystone is the ideal winter wonderland destination for the long weekend. For a unique Thanksgiving meal, book a reservation for a dinner sleigh ride or take a cozy gondola to the mountaintop for a four-course fondue fiesta. Boasting the longest ski day in Colorado, Keystone&rsquos slopes stay open until 8 p.m. and are even open on Thanksgiving Day, so you can sneak in a few runs before the feast and give yourself a well-deserved extra serving of mashed potatoes at dinner.

Sometimes a healthy break from family during the holidays is a good thing, and if you&rsquore not going to be home helping set the table, you might as well pick a beautiful destination to supplement the inevitable guilt trips. Spend your days hiking through exotic rainforests, traversing active volcanoes, snorkeling with sea life, or just lounging on the beach like a seal, with the seals on Hawaii&rsquos Big Island. Rates for accommodations typically taper off by this time of the year, so you can score a great deal and still enjoy your Thanksgiving meal at your beautiful resort&rsquos restaurant. Aloha, family!

A hot spot for bachelorette parties and girl trips is probably the last place you&rsquod think to spend your Day of Thanks, but Miami just might surprise you. With off-peak season in full swing, you can snag reduced rates for luxury accommodations and some much-needed R&R poolside without having to fight for a chair. Whether walking along Ocean Avenue or just lounging on the beach, satisfy your Turkey Day appetite at some of the city&rsquos best restaurants (just be sure to make that reservation in advance). We&rsquore thankful for many things, and a beach Thanksgiving is definitely one of them.

Sure, we love Bourbon Street, but New Orleans has so much more to offer than daiquiris and brutal hangovers. The city&rsquos culture revolves around food (hello, beignets, étouffée, and gumbo!), and what could be a better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than by eating a Turducken in the city where it was created? Literally spice up your Turkey Day and celebrate as the Cajuns do&mdashover a Turducken and jazz. When you&rsquore ready to move your food around, take a stroll through the Garden District to see some of the city&rsquos historic mansions and iconic architecture.

Trade your family history for real history and spend Thanksgiving where it all began. The Berkeley Plantation (AKA the site of the first Thanksgiving) celebrates the holiday with historical reenactments, parades, craft vendors, and, yes, plenty of food. Other historic locations across the city offer full Thanksgiving spreads for dinner so you can have a traditional meal, even if the settlers didn&rsquot.

With its crisp fall weather, vibrant foliage, and charming restaurants and markets, the Hudson Valley is the scenic Thanksgiving you didn&rsquot know you needed. Local restaurants will be open on Turkey Day and serving full feasts made with fresh ingredients sourced just a few miles away. On Thanksgiving Eve (AKA the biggest party day of the year), local resort Shamrock House celebrates accordingly with leather jackets and hairspray at their 80s-themed dance party. After the festivities, carve out some time in your trip to visit a few wineries while you&rsquore there, the Hudson Valley is the oldest wine-producing region in the country after all.

There&rsquos typically a direct correlation of alcohol consumption to family time, and given the choice, we&rsquod rather be drinking in stress-free wine country. Santa Barbara&rsquos beautiful Santa Ynez Valley is dotted with wineries and local restaurants that are happy to provide you the anxiety-free holiday you deserve. While the city doesn&rsquot have a Thanksgiving parade, you can still get your animal fix at the zoo during its &ldquoPumpkin Smash&rdquo event where you can watch animals play with pumpkins.


Once the turkey is gobbled up, have some Black Friday deals for dessert

Waiting until Black Friday to do all of your holiday shopping? Spoiler alert: You don't have to. Plenty of retailers have already announced their best deals:

  • Shopping secrets retailers don't want you to know: Insider tips for Black Friday, Cyber Monday.
  • The best products that are already at their Black Friday prices.
