4 Thanksgiving Alternatives Instead of Staying at Home

Thanksgiving can be a great holiday, but it can stressful to do the same thing every year. If you find that being at home is too boring or stressful, there are options out there for you. Below Parents

Go Volunteer

If you’re tired of being in your house, why not use that time to do some good for those around you? No matter where you live, there are certainly organizations that could use your help. While many of the facilities that help to feed people on Thanksgiving are full of volunteers on Thanksgiving Day, there are many others that might be more than happy to have a few extra pairs of hands during the holidays.

Go Camping

Getting out of your house might mean going to the great outdoors. Going camping can be done in many ways, ranging from a simple tent to an RV rental in Palm Springs. Regardless of the way you choose to enjoy nature, getting away from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season might be just what you need. As a bonus, this can also be a great way to see America in a way that’s far more similar to how the original pilgrims would’ve experienced the first Thanksgiving.

Hit the Beach

It might be November, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a vacation by the surf and sand. One of the great parts about choosing a beach vacation at this time of year is that the vacancies are plenty and the visitors are scarce, so you can get a great deal on a fantastic room or bungalow. While the rest of the country is sitting down around crowded tables, you can enjoy a wonderful day on the water.

Rent a Cabin

Finally, you might want to try to get a little solitude on Thanksgiving. Cabin rentals are a great way to get out into the mountains or woods without really having to rough it. Spending a few days out away from the crazy holiday shopping and the busy stores can be a good way to really re-energize yourself and to get ready for the busy days yet to come.

You don’t have to stay home for Thanksgiving. Whether you camp, you go to the beach, or you just volunteer, you can have a great holiday without ever seeing the inside of your home. Remember, this is a day to give thanks—but that doesn’t mean you have to stay in the house to do so.
