It may be an odd idea to spend a major Holiday in a place that isn’t your home, but who says you can’t stray from tradition for a year and treat yourself and your family to a little Thanksgiving vacation away from home? Savannah is a great place to celebrate Thanksgiving with friends and family and kick off the start of the holidays!
Here are four reasons you should come to Savannah this year for Thanksgiving.
For some of us, Thanksgiving requires a full day of stressful table-setting and menu accommodations before you even begin cooking. This of course is followed by all the subsequent dishes that need to be cleaned or packaged as leftovers. Here is a time saving tip for having the best of both worlds.

From Broughton Street to City Market, you will find shops with all the items you need to cross people off your Christmas shopping lists.
Nourish, is a great local option that usually has some great Black Friday deals.
If boutiques are not your thing, there are also options for more traditional Black Friday shopping, you can always check out the Tanger Outlets in Pooler, GA (20 mins from Savannah) or Oglethorpe Mall where there will certainly be lots of deals on Black Friday into the weekend.
The weekend after Thanksgiving is when some of the traditional Savannah Holiday activities start. You can get into the Holiday spirit early (or right on time) with these three events:
