3 Thanksgiving Holiday Destination Ideas

Planning to get away and looking for Thanksgiving holiday destination ideas? After lockdowns and travel restrictions of the last year-and-a-half, why wouldn’t you want to pack your bags?

Heading to the beach or lakeside is a long-time favourite for many Americans.  But there are those that enjoy non-water recreational activities. 

With that in mind, CheapOair have provided some of the best Thanksgiving holiday destination ideas to consider if you are thinking of a Thanksgiving break away from home.

New York City

New York

After a tough 2020, New York City is back.  Most of the Big Apple’s  renowned attractions, from the Met to MoMA, from Macy’s to the Empire State Building…are once again open for business. 

And Central Park has always been there waiting for exploration. Visit NYC: The Official Guide for updates on what’s open in New York City.

Mystic, Connecticut

This small, laid-back town is an affordable option for a weekend escape.  If you’re a seafood lover, you’ll enjoy the sea-to-table restaurants located around the coast. 

There is also the famous Mystic Pizza, seen in the 1998 film of the same name.  Things to do include the Mystic Seaport Museum, the Mystic Aquarium, or just strolling around this charming, historic town.

Palm Springs, California

Book a cheap domestic flight to California, grab your swimsuit, and enjoy the magical ambiance of Palm Springs.  If fitness is your thing, head to the Indian Canyons to spend the day hiking or biking through the desert. 

“It’s gratifying to see people get excited about travel once again,” says Werner Kunz-Cho, CEO of Fareportal, the company behind online travel agencies CheapOair and One Travel.
