Thanksgiving is nearly here! For many of us, this time of year means time with friends and family, lots of good food, and (the best part) leftovers! You may not want to travel at this time of year in an attempt to avoid the crowds and added expense. But there are definitely advantages to traveling at Thanksgiving. Here are our 3 reasons Thanksgiving is a great time to travel.
Why is Thanksgiving is a Great Time to Travel?
1. A Break from Routine
A vacation at this time of year could be just what the doctor ordered. A break from your routine and the opportunity to reconnect with loved ones, to give thanks for things you might otherwise take for granted.
Autumn/winter brings more hours of darkness and cooler weather which both tend to result in us staying indoors and feeling a little isolated and flat in mood. Taking a vacation gives you the motivation to get out there and be more sociable. This is incredibly restorative and great for mood boosting.
2. Catch up with Friends and Family
This holiday is all about giving thanks for what we have, and one thing we surely should be grateful for, is our loved ones. Do you have relatives abroad? If so, did you know that international deals are plentiful around this time of year?
Well, a lot of other countries don’t celebrate Thanksgiving so you don’t get the same travel rush as at Christmas or New Year. You could arrange to host a celebration and show your relatives from across the pond just how we do it over here. Alternatively perhaps you could jet set off to visit them and take it in turns each year!
3. Fall in NC is Beautiful
We may be biased, but here in NC we have some stunning areas of natural beauty that will make anyone pause and give thanks. With the glorious scenery that surrounds us, what better way could you celebrate thanksgiving?
