This year at fabulous we welcomed some amazing American brands, so we’re celebrating Thanksgiving by putting together our ultimate guide to the holiday season in America. Today, we’ve travelled to America (virtually) via the ultimate daydream site Air bnb to pick our top 5 places to celebrate Thanksgiving!
We imagine Florida is a pretty awesome place to spend Thanksgiving, we’d be thankful for the warm weather (averaging 16-25 degrees in November) , the walk to the beach and the stunning interior of this classic Floridian apartment. We love the stripped wood and beautiful furniture. No one does the holidays like Disneyland which is just over 2 hours drive away – perfect!
Charles’ Apartment is £77 per night
Snowy mountains, cosy cabins, pendleton blankets and a huge family is how we imagine Thanksgiving at this heavenly ‘condo’ in Aspen. It may sound pricey but it sleeps 14, has 5 bathrooms a bar and hot tub, which might be a challenge as Aspen hits lows of -5 in November! This definitely hits the spot (and yes, our choice of Aspen was inspired by Dumb and Dumber).
101 Park is £1295 per night
Coming a close second to New York, Chicago is fast becoming the city to be in for Thanksgiving with it’s own parade (The McDonalds parade) and the largest German Christmas market outside of Europe, Christkindlmarket. We chose this amazing apartment located near State Street so you could watch the parade from the comfort of your own home.
Rita’s apartment is £122 per night and sleeps 2
2. San Francisco
We’d love to spend Thanksgiving in San Francisco with it’s laid back vibe and cosmopolitan feel. How about a trip to Alcatraz Island to remind you to be thankful (take the audio tour, to get shouted at from previous convicts) then lighten your mood with a trip to Haight Ashbury, see the Golden Gate bridge and take a world famous cable car ride, perfect! Then come back to this plush apartment with floor to ceiling windows, a private balcony and amazing views.
You could stay in the Soma penthouse for £241 per night
1. New York
Ever since watching Home Alone, Friends, Sex and the City and Gossip Girl we’ve all dreamed of spending Thanksgiving in New York, to see the parade, have a coffee in Central Perk and generally skip around town in Manolos! We love this apartment complete with roof terrace and expansive living space, located in the East Village known for it’s hip and trendy bars and cafes – Carrie would approve!
You can stay in Wendy’s apartment for £177 per night
