Thanksgiving is a time to come together as a family, but the standard question is where? Mom and dad’s place can’t seat all the guests, and your brother is still renovating the kitchen! Why not let someone else do the cooking and cleaning. Here are five hotels that are perfect for starting a new Thanksgiving tradition.
Thanksgiving a football go hand-in-hand, and this resort knows it! Get in on the action and participate in the resort’s Turkey Bowl football game. After, bake seasonal cookies or enjoy s’mores by the fireside. Of course, you can always play a round of golf as well.
Aside from the beautiful rooms and perfect location, The Jefferson is also home to Plume, a fine dining restaurant with cuisine inspired by the harvest from Thomas Jefferson’s kitchen gardens at Monticello. Thanksgiving offers a three course meal prepared by Executive Chef Ralf Schlegel with choices that include: Seared Foie Gras Medallion with Rosehip Duck Jus, Brunswick Figs, Red Sorrel and a Butter Brioche, Organic Path Valley Farm Turkey with Apple-Chestnut Bread Stuffing, Cranberry Relish, Green Bean Cassoulet and Maple Turkey Gravy and Red Kuri Pumpkin Pie. The best part, you won’t need to clean a dish!
Much like the Jefferson, The Edgewater is offering a magnificent feast of Thanksgiving favorites, but it’s the day after Thanksgiving that has our attention. The resort will kick off the holiday season with a joyous afternoon and evening full of free, family-friendly events. The Grand Plaza at The Edgewater plays host to their Fourth Annual Holiday Tree Lighting, with a chance for families to lace their skates and take to the resorts private ice rink.
The Warwick is a beautifully historic stay in NYC. In case you didn’t know (wink-wink) NYC plays host to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Warwick sits on the parade route, and with its open air balconies, your family could have their most memorable view of all the action. All you would have to do is decide which balloon was your favorite!
As New England as it gets, The Nantucket Hotel is the only “all-season” spot on Nantucket Island. This Thanksgiving, the hotel will host their 16th Annual Cold Turkey Plunge, a fundraiser featuring hundreds of spectators and swimmers who brave the cold waters at Children’s Beach on Thanksgiving morning to benefit the Weezie Library for Children. Once everyone dries off and warms up, attention turns to the Nantucket Tree-Lighting Ceremony, featuring over 100 brightly decorated Christmas trees and festive community caroling. Did we mention the feast in between the two events? This could be your family’s new tradition!
