HI there Emily...

Are you conducting a Survey ?

Or are you actually looking for travel advice?

If travel advice, could you please share some important information necessary to make viable recommends... Btw, many of the regular contributors to this forum do not live in the USA/ this is a global forum here...

Where are you travelling from, how long will your vacation be for, what are your exact dates of travel, what types of things are you looking to do, and how old are the children/how many travelling?

Thanks 😊

I agree with mini and recommend New York City and their annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. I can't think of any other US city that does anything different/significant on that day.

Chicago has a Thanksgiving parade. Will not be as massive as Macy's. But Chicago 's Xmas decorations are great also. Go to Macy;s (formerly Marshall Field) on State Street) Visit famous clocks and Walnut Room on 7th floor. See free Zoo Lights at Lincoln Park Zoo. Easy to get too. Mag Mile, Bean, Museums, Theaters with kid and adult themed shows. Hamilton at reasonable prices. .

Hotel prices in and around Thanksgiving are less than a $100 for four star places.

You might also consider Wash DC or San Francisco as prices there are cheap for hotels and plenty to do.

New York is not cheap over Thanksgiving but I guess they have the real Kris Kringle! Or they claim.

Chicago has the real Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. Created by Montgomery Wards in Chicago and song played at the Drake.
