5 Reasons to Celebrate Thanksgiving in Destin Florida
Are you tired of the same old Thanksgiving routine? This year, try something different for Turkey Day, and take a vacation to beautiful Destin, Florida. Located along the famous Emerald Coast, Destin is the perfect destination for a late November escape. To help you make the most of your holiday, the Henderson Park Inn has put together five reasons you will love celebrating Thanksgiving in Destin Florida.
1. Comfortable Weather
While the rest of the country is cooling down, Destin’s weather remains nice and comfortable. With highs around 70 and lows around 54, the climate is ideal for walking, bicycling, or playing a round of golf. Enjoying the great outdoors sure sounds better than breaking out your winter jacket and gloves!
2. Take Advantage of Vacation Time
Although many people don’t think of it this way, the Thanksgiving holiday provides a four day weekend that is ideal for traveling. Most Americans get Thursday and Friday off without having to tap into their vacation time. Rather than just staying at home, you can use this extra long weekend to take a romantic getaway with the one you love.
3. Leave Your Thanksgiving Meal to the Professionals
Preparing a traditional Thanksgiving meal requires a lot of time and effort. When you spend Thanksgiving in Destin Florida, you can skip the hassle and let someone else do the cooking. Beach Walk Cafe, the area’s top destination for fine dining, serves a wonderful holiday meal with all of the trimmings. Guests will enjoy a turkey carving station, fresh herb stuffing, honey glazed ham with pineapple chutney, shrimp and grits, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, pumpkin cheesecake, and many other delicious items.
