The turkey's eaten, the stuffing's finished, and the pumpkin pie is a memory. Thanksgiving is finally over, and you're ready to move on to Christmas. But that doesn't mean you can't start thinking about your Thanksgiving plans for next year. For tips on where to travel, take a look at our top celebrations.
- Governor Jefferson's Thanksgiving Festival, Charlottesville, Virginia
The Cambridge of the South is proud of its colonial history. Every year, when they ring in Thanksgiving, they celebrate with a festival replete with petticoats and cannons. For a reenacted debate, pay a visit to Ye Olde Courte House.
- Chusok Festival, Seoul, South Korea
“The second most important festival in South Korea,” Chusok lets Koreans chow down with their extended families. For the local equivalent of turkey, get a taste of authentic songpyeon.
- Macy's Thanksgiving Eve Balloon Inflation, New York, NY
Sick of the parade? Unwilling to wait for hours just to see the Sonic float? If you're like our own KDKerr, you'll prefer the run-up to the madness: “Some people consider this better than the parade itself due to the much smaller crowd and an up-close and personal glimpse of old favorites and new character additions,” he says. “Plus, inflating these dynamic dirigibles is quite a process to behold.”
