To me, Thanksgiving is the ultimate family holiday. It is all about eating the most delicious food and soaking up some much needed time with the ones you love. I have spent every Thanksgiving my entire life with my dear family... this year is different. Since we live over 2300 miles away from home and we are going home for Christmas, a flight during Thanksgiving (for at least $400 a person) doesn't really make sense. Thus, we will be spending Thanksgiving in Florida. I will be with the man I love so much but I will really miss all my family. Since I will be missing home ALOT and Dave has a few days off of school, we want to do something really fun. This is where you come in... Here are a few of the things we have thought about...
-This is a great deal- less than $200. It is only 2 hours away and we would get to soak up some rays during the holiday. Plus, I wouldn't have to cook an actual thanksgiving dinner for just us.
2. Spend Thanksgiving day in Disney World.
-Do I really need to say anything here? We have never been. And I would definitely not be missing home at all if I am in the happiest place on Earth!! This is a little more pricey than the first but it is Disney World!!
3. Two night cruise to the Bahamas.
-We would leave on Thanksgiving Day and drive down by Miami (5ish hour drive) and spend the afternoon on the ship. The entire next day is in the Bahamas :) Never been there either... hmmm. THIs choice is the most pricey but still under $400!! Great deal, right??
4. Thanksgiving dinner in Gainesville and go Black Friday Shopping.
-Let's be real, this is probably the most likely option. It does include me making Thanksgiving dinner though... that is a lot of money and work. However, I LOVE Black Friday shopping! I get so excited about it every year! Nothing is better than getting a good deal!
Basically when it comes down to it, I am going to miss home a lot that day! So I want to be really busy doing something REALLY fun! So we have four options people. I have been trying to plan something for over a month- Dave doesn't really care what we do... to an extent. So I need some good advice.
If it were you, which option would you choose and why??
What are your plans for Thanksgiving this year??
