Football also plays a large part in Thanksgiving, as the sport has a big game played on Thanksgiving Day (which lasts a few hours). Finally, let's not forget the parade. The Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade is held each year in Manhattan, and features large floats, marching bands, and dancers through the streets.

New York is a great place to visit in November for Thanksgiving.

If you are visiting as a tourist there are plenty of restaurants that will serve a Thanksgiving style dinner. If you are visiting New York and want to see the parade, get there EARY!

Stores open as early as midnight and bring crazy deal chasers anxiously waiting outside storefronts. If you're not interested in the shopping, it is still quite the experience.

The Best Places for Travel in November #5: Thailand

Thailand is one of the most desirable places in the world to visit. With delicious food, incredible temples, and stunning beaches, millions travel to this diverse country every year.


We particularly think its one of the best places to visit in November, because the weather overall is at its best. Head to the Northern regions and you will see dry and sunny days, with chillier nights. Go island hopping in the South and you will find the weather getting less rainy than the previous months.

Thailand has its best weather in November.

We suggest doing the north of Thailand in the beginning of the month, and saving the South for the end of the month.


Not only is the weather great in November, but the famous lantern festivals take place in the middle of the month. Go to Thailand and you can experience thousands of floating baskets with candles released into the sky. We definitely think this is one for the bucket list.


November is a great month to travel for those that want to experience special holidays around the world. As temperatures cool down in the Northern hemisphere it is also the perfect time for a tropical getaway.
