Ten Last Minute Thanksgiving Getaways for 2013
Monday, November 18, 2013
Whether you are escaping a family Thanksgiving or realizing that your place is a little too small for this year's gathering and it's time to quickly find a destination vacation home to host everyone, you are in luck! It's not too late to find a great vacation home for Thanksgiving. East coast, west coast and everyone in-between can easily find a fantastic Thanksgiving vacation home on Vacation Rental Connection. Check out these great suggestions:

1) San Diego - The weather is amazing, perfect for walking or jogging off that enormous meal. It also makes it easy to get outside for a family game of football or a hike to enjoy some peace and quiet. The scenery is gorgeous and no one will forget this Thanksgiving trip.

2) Galveston/Texas Gulf Coast - Another weather winner for a pleasant Thanksgiving weekend. Plan a fishing excursion, take a stroll on the beach and enjoy the coastal beauty without the summer crowds.

3) Las Vegas - This location is perfect for both a Thanksgiving escape and a large gathering. It's got weather, golf, loads of entertainment, 1 bedroom condos to 6 bedroom houses and great restaurant options if everyone wants to take a break from cooking this year.

4) Branson - Neat housing options from condos to amazing log cabins, tons of entertainment, beautiful views of the water, Thanksgiving dinner cruises (who will forget that one?), and easy to travel to from points across the midwest.

5) Outer Banks, NC - Have a really big crowd this year or just need a place for two? From 10+ bedroom homes to one bedroom condos, you can find the perfect size vacation home on the Outer Banks. Although the off season rates increase just a bit for the holiday, they are still very reasonable even for oceanfront locations. The Outer Banks are the perfect destination for a relaxing Thanksgiving getaway.

6) Poconos - Find a cozy condo or a fantastic home and pack up the car for a great Thanksgiving trip. Enjoy the great lake and mountain views, a multitude of Thanksgiving buffets and activities from which to choose, and scout out houses and condos for your next ski trip!

7) Adirondacks - Outdoor beauty will surround you this Thanksgiving with a trip to the Adirondacks. It might be cold, it could be mild, but it will definitely be away from the holiday hustle and bustle and a nice peaceful way to kick-off the holidays.

8) St. Augustine, FL - one of three locations considered to be the first Thanksgiving celebration in the USA (Plymouth and Charles City, VA the other two). St. Augustine has a proper downtown with historical sites and then has the gorgeous beach area on neighboring Anastasia Island. Relax on the beach or tour the city, either way you are in for a treat. Downtown also has beautiful holiday lights.

9) Virginia - There is so much history to see in this state, including one of the front runner locations for the first Thanksgiving dinner, that it's hard to recommend one spot. Head to the Blue Ridge mountains, tour Williamsburg, relax at the beach or take the long weekend to see it all.

10) NYC - Are you ready to dive into the holidays with both feet? Hit the city and see the sights, dine out for your big day meal and shop 'til you drop. Be flexible on where you stay in the city and you will have more options than you think!
