New York, New York!
New York City is, without a doubt, one of the best destinations if you’re wondering where to go for the Thanksgiving holidays.

Outside of New York, the trees will be bursting with bright red foliage, making a drive up the east coast more than worthwhile. Along the way, you can take in the sights of Massachusetts, as well as visit Boston and New Jersey.
