Colorado Misses ‘Best U.S. Cities for Thanksgiving Getaway’ List
If you're looking to treat Thanksgiving like a mini-vacation, you may have to go out of state.
The only travel I do around the holidays is just enough to get to my loved ones' houses. I've never been one who wants a weekend getaway. To me, Thanksgiving and Christmas are a time to be with family.
However, some people like to enjoy the holidays in another city.
That being said, Travel Awaits has crafted a list of the "Best U.S. Cities for a Thanksgiving Getaway in 2019." Of course, New York City, which features the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, made the list, but you'll also find places like Washington D.C., with its gorgeous fall colors and even Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
However, they left Colorado off the list completely.
Although Denver and Colorado Springs are among the top travel destinations for Turkey Day, that's more about safety, affordability, and weather. Travel Awaits' list seems to be about unique food offerings and Instagrammable moments. At least that's what I can gather from it. Why else would Miami be on the list?
