Massachusetts Has One of the Best Thanksgiving Towns in the U.S.
Thanksgiving is a lovely time of year. It’s a happy time to be with family and friends. Some towns in America just encompass that Thanksgiving spirit, with a general feeling of warmth, comfort and home. These towns also have some fun fall activities, from cider mills to apple orchards to pumpkin picking. As it turns out, Massachusetts has one of the best “Thanksgiving towns” in America.
The list comes from Country Living, who knows a lot about the coziest cities in America. “From apple picking to pretty porch spotting, embrace all the best things about fall in a new place this holiday,” they state in the article. “Whether you spend a lot on a luxury resort or a little on a cheap place to visit during Thanksgiving, we guarantee you’ll be grateful for the new perspective, the shared memories, and a delicious slice of pie that you didn’t have to spend hours making yourself.”
Before we get to our area, let’s look at the No. 1 best Thanksgiving town in America. It’s Charlottesville, Virginia. Of the spot, Country Living says, “Home to the University of Virginia, this picturesque college town offers a bucolic blend of historic buildings, rolling pastures, and plenty of wineries and cideries. Leave the cooking to the pros with a pre-fixe Thanksgiving dinner at Keswick Hall or The Quirk, then walk off your meal with a leisurely stroll along the pedestrian-only downtown Mall.”
