  1. Now those are destinations to be grateful for! My kids have the week of Thanksgiving off from school, so it’s a perfect time to get away to a gorgeous beach.

  2. If we were to travel during Thanksgiving, I’d pick any of these locations. The Bahamas sounds nice this time of year.

    1. Every year I try to convince my extended family that we should skip exchanging gifts & go on a multigen trip somewhere instead. And every year I fail. I hope you’re more successful convincing your family!

  3. I love this so much! We take a trip up to the Smoky Mountains every year for Thanksgiving. The entire extended family goes. I’m thinking beach next year!
