Thanksgiving is synonymous with big family dinners, a turkey on the table and a slice of pumpkin pie for dessert. But, not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving this way. While it’s a wonderful day to spend with your loved ones and indulge in some turkey and delicacies, not everyone likes the cooking, entertaining and craziness that often accompanies the winter holidays. If you want to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday without having to lift a finger, plan a mini getaway. Plus, you’ll have a four-day weekend to enjoy.
Why Visit Napa for Thanksgiving
Napa Valley is an excellent place to come for Thanksgiving. Harvest season is over, so the crowds have dropped significantly, yet there are still enough visitors to keep the scene lively. The weather is near perfect, with mild temperatures and cool evenings. There is spectacular fall foliage to enjoy as well as festivals, wine tours and tastings and shopping. Since the crowds have died down, you can expect some of your best rates during this time.
Thanksgiving Packages at Your Favorite Hotels
Many of the local hotels have Thanksgiving and Fall Packages that accommodate people wanting to get away while still enjoying the Thanksgiving holiday. You can enjoy a fine meal of your choice without having to do any of the work or cleanup. A Thanksgiving buffet is available at many hotels and includes all of the favorite trimmings and delicious desserts. You can also eat at one of our five-star restaurants and choose a seasonal selection from the menu.
When your Thanksgiving meal is over, you can enjoy the beautiful Napa Valley area or retreat to your room where amenities like cable TV, free wi-fi,soak-in jacuzzi tubs and room service await you. No interruptions, no one to bother you. Just a relaxing weekend that is built around YOU.
