The holidays are knocking on our doors, and before we can decorate our Christmas tree, we need to do Thanksgiving justice and celebrate this important day for the American nation. Thanksgiving is a family holiday, meaning you get to spend the entire day with your loved ones at home and enjoy the precious moments together. You’ll cook a delicious meal and bake the famous apple pie only to watch football before you indulge in the dinner you’ve prepared.
However, maybe this year you don’t feel in the mood to organize a large family gathering, and you’d prefer to spend the day with your closest family members or friends. Maybe you’d prefer to use your free time to recharge your batteries and escape the city jungle for a couple of days. Naturally, that doesn’t mean you’ll skip the holiday—it simply means you’ll celebrate it differently. Going on a trip with your partner or children allows you to relax and create memories you’ll cherish forever. So, if you’re ready to make a new tradition this year, keep reading as we list four places you could visit this Thanksgiving.
The Newbury Boston
Of course, when talking about Thanksgiving, we can’t but mention Boston. The luxury hotel is located in the bustling district of Back Bay, and it’s famous for being the emblem of Boston’s modern heritage. The hotel is a perfect blend of the old and the new as it honors history while keeping up with the latest trends in the industry. The best time to visit the mesmerizing palace is fall because the leaves turn crimson, and you get to enjoy the breathtaking view from your cozy room.
As it’s located in the city Center, you’ll get to explore Boston and take advantage of all the amenities the hotel has to offer. Don’t miss the chance to visit The Street Bar and taste the fine selection of wines and cocktails. You can also check out the menu and enjoy the culinary treats of some of the best chefs in the world.
Blackberry Farm, Tennessee
One of the most famous retreats in America is the perfect place to spend Thanksgiving and get away from the city traffic. The calming surroundings and fresh air will clear your mind and help you forget all your worries and troubles. This Great Smoky Mountains gem will provide you with a one-of-a-kind experience that you’ll keep coming back to every year. The farm was founded back in 1976, and throughout the years it has become a haven for those looking to enjoy some good wine and food away from the crowd.
The farm offers a wide range of activities you can participate in. For fitness lovers, you can enjoy a yoga session or a hiking trip through the mountains. However, if you prefer to lay back and relax, a group whiskey tasting might be a better option for you.
McCormick Ranch, Scottsdale
“At the crossroads of everything Scottsdale”—the resort’s slogan speaks volumes of this place’s significance. If you want to absorb everything Scottsdale has to offer and take part in some of the most engaging activities, then the McCormick Ranch is the place for you.

After a long day of sightseeing, you’ll get to treat yourself to a relaxing evening at the ranch’s Spa or to unwind near the pool while sipping your favorite cocktail. The resort has the tradition of organizing a Thanksgiving Buffet at the Vista Verde Restaurant, so you won’t have to worry about missing out on the delicious turkey this year.
Thompson Seattle, Seattle Washington
Located near the Pike Place Market, the luxurious Thompson Seattle allows its guest to enjoy the magical beauty of Seattle and bask in the city’s atmosphere. The hotel is famous for its floor-to-ceiling windows designed to break down barriers and provide the guests with a unique stay.
As the hotel overlooks the harbor, you’ll get to drink your morning coffee while enjoying the beautiful waterfront. Once you’ve completed your morning routine and you’re ready to start your day, head to the Catbird, the rooftop restaurant, to treat your buds to some finely prepared dishes.
