Tired of the same old Thanksgiving itinerary? Whether you’re the one slaving in the kitchen all day or loading up the car to travel to a relative’s house, it’s a holiday that often comes with more chores than relaxation. This year, why not free yourself from the grind and book a holiday getaway to 30A instead? With our beautiful, pristine beaches and gorgeous weather this time of year, Thanksgiving in 30A offers a truly unique holiday experience. From delicious catered meals offered by local restaurants to family events and activities, you’ll create memories that will last a lifetime. Read on as we cover everything you need to know to have the perfect Thanksgiving in 30A.

Taste of 30A: Thanksgiving Dinners from Local Restaurants

While you certainly don’t have to stay out of the kitchen on Thanksgiving, if you’re looking to have a more laid-back holiday, 30A is the place to be. The food scene here is incredible, and several local restaurants are offering delicious catered family feasts so you can enjoy all the traditions of Thanksgiving with none of the clean-up.

Whether you want a turkey-free experience like the Perfect Pig’s “Everything but the Turkey” catering option (meat is still on the menu) or a dine-in three-course luxury meal like the offerings you’ll find at Fleming’s Steakhouse, one thing you won’t be lacking on is quality. From classics like green bean casserole and cornbread stuffing to coastal specialties of lobster bisque and Alaskan King Crab legs, you can make your Thanksgiving meal in 30A one you’ll be dreaming about all year long.

If you do want to prepare a holiday meal, booking a vacation rental with a fully equipped kitchen, like the properties you’ll find at 30A Luxury Vacations, makes that easy to accomplish. With expansive spaces and all the comforts of home plus the luxury of high-end appliances, you’ll feel like a Michelin Star chef as you whip up your family’s favorites.

30A Thanksgiving Holiday Events and Activities

Now that you know where to get the best food in town, let’s talk about how to spend the rest of your 30A Thanksgiving vacation! Kick off your Thanksgiving morning with the Clone of 30A 10K, 5K, & 1-mile fun run. This is like no Turkey Trot you’ve ever experienced. The charity race begins at 7:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day and concludes with an after-run breakfast complete with beer and a Bloody Mary bar. Thanksgiving evening, consider a family beach bonfire with s'mores as everyone shares what they’re grateful for.
