4 Reasons Why You Must Spend Thanksgiving in Destin This Year

Are you looking for a new place to come celebrate Thanksgiving this year? How about trying something different this year and come vacation in Destin, Florida. We are located on the Emerald Coast and Destin is the perfect location to take your family vacation in late November. And to help you decide if staying in a Beach Front vacation rental is what you need, we have 4 amazing reasons why you must spend Thanksgiving in Destin this year.

Perfect Weather

If you live in an area where it may be cold during Thanksgiving, then coming to Destin is the best remedy. The highs during the day are usually around 70 degrees with the lows around the 50’s. This can be perfect if you want to go for a bike ride, walking on the beach or maybe even going to play a round or two of golf. We feel that taking a Holiday vacation to the beach is better than spending it in the cold with your winter coat and gloves.

Thanksgiving Day Meal

When you are at home, preparing the traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner can take all day long to get ready. But when you vacation in one of our vacation rentals, you can either prepare the meal yourself or why not take advantage of someone else cooking for you. In the morning you can watch the Thanksgiving Parade on the television, take a nap, go eat your Thanksgiving Day meal and come back to your vacation rental and take another nap! You need to be well rested if you want to go shopping the next morning. Some of the great restaurants that you can take advantage of getting a meal from would be Cafe Thirty-A, Harbor Docks and Dockside Cafe. If you still want to have your Thanksgiving meal at your rental but don’t want to cook, then try out Publix.  You will be able to order a fully-cooked turkey and all the classic side dishes to go along with it.
