The colors of the leaves are beautiful shades of reds and oranges and plenty of holiday activities become available. Take a look at how you can enjoy Thanksgiving in Traverse City this year:

Make Your Thanksgiving Feast

One of the biggest Thanksgiving traditions that most families have is preparing a feast at home. There is nothing quite like a home cooked meal with all of the savory dishes that are served. You can still have your home cooked meal even when traveling when you book one of our vacation rentals. Each property features a full-size kitchen that comes with everything you need to prepare a meal. You can expect to find all of the essential cooking ware you need along with plenty of countertop space to use. Full-size appliances inside each home makes it so that you can prepare most dishes at once and even have space in the fridge for leftovers. Use up the entire dining room table for a delightful meal that is expected of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Thanksgiving Events

2021 has allowed many large events to take place again and the same goes for Traverse City. One event that is often a local tradition is running in the Up North Media Turkey Trot. This will be its 14th year and will be taking place on Thanksgiving morning. This year’s event will be back in person after it was virtual last year. The Up North Media Turkey Trot is a 5K run/walk that you can go at your own pace. The 5 Mile Flier is a race intended for those who have experience with races such as these. No matter which route you choose you can expect plenty of fun and excitement for the whole family along with earning your Thanksgiving feast later that day.
