Best Thanksgiving Getaways for Families in Massachusetts

Being with family is one of the best parts of the Thanksgiving holiday. What could be better than escaping to a Massachusetts holiday and sharing it all with those you love! Check out these ideas for memorable family getaways, and don't forget to pack your camera.

  • 1. Cape Cod

    Your family will feel right at home on the rugged coast of the Atlantic, a place of quaint villages and historic lighthouses. Though it might be chilly on the beach, there is plenty to do over your long weekend in Nantucket. The Nantucket Whaling Museum features a candle factory and a real whale skeleton. Young ones will love the Cape Cod Children's Museum, where they can explore a pirate ship and discover the heavens in the indoor planetarium. Mom and Dad can relax with a craft brew at Cisco Brewery.

  • 2. Thanksgiving Dinner Train

    If your family just can't bear the thought of missing the traditional turkey dinner, plan a ride on Cape Cod Central Railroad's Thanksgiving journey. Skip the cooking and enjoy the view of the Atlantic coast while enjoying top-notch food and stellar service. The train departs from Hyannis and returns three hours later with all bellies happily full.

  • 3. Plymouth

    If you happen to be free on the weekend before Thanksgiving, check out the most historically accurate Thanksgiving parade in the nation. Plymouth's celebration holds opening ceremonies in Pilgrim Memorial Park and then heads out down Benny's Plaza Court Street. Share this special event with your family, and enjoy several events that mark the history of the very first Thanksgiving in 1621.
