While it’s no secret that traveling over festive periods is a nightmare – delays, crowds of people, long queues at check in, it’s all to be expected when people just want to get home to their families.

However, travel doesn’t have to be a nightmare, and there are some great destinations for Thanksgiving travel that allow you to escape the crowds if that’s what you want.

Best Destinations for Thanksgiving in the USA

Whether you want to stay in the USA or go overseas, here are the best destinations for Thanksgiving travel!

New York City, NY

NYC is full of iconic attractions – most of which are unique, involve gorgeous views, and so worth doing. Plus, it has those more local experiences you love as well. There is no city like it in the world.

Seattle, WA

You’ll find some of the best art, culture, music, coffee and spectacular views in the country. Plus it is surrounded by many extraordinary places of natural beauty like Mount Rainier, Olympic National Park, and North Cascades National Park.

Boston, MA

Travelers for Thanksgiving this year agree. Don’t let the slightly colder temps deter you from exploring the incredible history, culture and uniquely European feel of Boston.

Atlanta, GA

Historical Atlanta is worth visiting to get a greater understanding of eras such as the civil war and the Civil rights movement. Outside of the city we loved Stone Mountain Park and a little further out Amicalola Falls makes an incredible day trip and is one of our favorite waterfalls in the US.

Dallas- Fort Wort, TX

Melt-in-your-mouth Brisket, big league sports, bustling art scene, cultural vibrancy, outdoor fun, interesting history and affordability make Dallas and nearby Fort Worth a worthy destination to check out.
