As the weather turns cooler, pot lucks begin and then finally a wonderful gathering of family at Thanksgiving. This time of year always makes me think of my roots, where it all began. Family road trips can be its own adventure, but why not take one to the roots of Thanksgiving.
There’s no better place to start this journey then where the first historic gathering happened, Plymouth, Massachusetts, a 45-minute drive from Boston. At Plimouth Plantation, you can experience history brought to life with outdoor living exhibits, the Mayflower II, Plimoth Grist Mill, and traditional New England trimmings where you can talk about the 1621 feast that started it all.
Santa Fe, New Mexico
To learn more about Native American culture, head to Santa Fe for its world-renowned art galleries and museums. A three-day Winter Indian Market hosts 200 artists, native dance groups, and music for all the entertainment and history you can handle.
New York City, New York
If you’re a fan of gatherings and thanksgiving, the biggest gathering to celebrate the holiday is in the Big Apple at the Thanksgiving Day Parade with over three million spectators. If crowds aren’t your thing, cozy up with the family in an overlooking hotel room for the ultimate high up viewpoint.
