Thanksgiving Day in New England
New England Thanksgiving Traditions Recipes Lodging & Restaurant Dining
Thanksgiving Day traditions in New England include Football Games, Turkey dinners, frosted pumpkins, shimmering mornings, family, friends, and laughter. If you are traveling this Thanksgiving Holiday season you can enjoy all the amenities of Thanksgiving if you plan a little in advance.
Many of our suggested New England Inns are serving a full Thanksgiving Day dinner to guests. Often seating is limited or restricted to in-house guests with advance reservations. While some New England restaurant owners choose to close on Thanksgiving Day many others are serving a full Thanksgiving Day menu with special items such as pumpkin pies, Baked Ham, and the traditional Oven-Roasted Turkey.
Attending a community Thanksgiving Day event is an option for residents as well as visitors. Ask your New England Innkeeper or Bed and Breakfast owner about Thanksgiving happenings in the area. Thanksgiving Weekend can be a busy weekend for northern New England Ski Resorts, especially if early snow covers the slopes.

New England Turkey Farms
For some of us – it’s just not really the Thanksgiving season until you visit the Turkey Producer or local turkey farmer and pick out your bird. The Vermont Turkey Farmers we visited told us they see many of the same customers every year.
Buying a fresh turkey may cost a little more, but the local birds are far less processed and you are supporting local Turkey farmers. Whatever you choose – enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday and join us in giving thanks for all we have here in the USA.
