In the chaos of an ever-changing world, taking time to step back and remember what we’re thankful for in 2020 is key to finding peace of mind. It’s safe to say it’s been a year filled with challenges as the arrival of COVID-19 had employees transitioning out of standard offices, businesses closing their doors, and students learning to make the move to virtual online learning platforms. With these new requirements came plenty of hurdles related to how to turn homes into places of work and even more—how to balance work and life when everything was merged together.

With the holidays around the corner, even those traditions many of us have long counted on with family and friends seem to be in question. How do we keep one another safe while still enjoying time with our loved ones this holiday season? Fortunately, the answer doesn’t have to be canceling all holiday plans. When hosting a large group Thanksgiving at home just isn’t an option—consider taking your celebration on the road and instead, enjoying a 30A Thanksgiving! A change of scenery will definitely be different, but it might be just what everyone needs in 2020.

Why 30A is a Fantastic Thanksgiving Destination

There’s no need to worry about the stresses that come with the arrival of winter when you plan a Thanksgiving holiday in 30A. Here, visitors can swap out the snow, ice, and cold for a destination that features the best of warm sand beaches, beautiful waves, and plenty of tropical-inspired locales to explore. This type of climate is a welcoming one for family members of all ages that are looking to gather this holiday season. In addition to the amazing temperatures, 30A is brimming over with opportunities to get out and explore while still maintaining a safe distance from crowds. Whether you decided to rent a private boat and enjoy a sightseeing tour from the waves, can’t wait to spend time snorkeling on hidden away coves, or have a heart for exploring off the beaten path trails, 30A is a place where it’s all possible. Thanksgiving guests to 30A can bike their way through the terrain as well or enjoy time bird watching, wildlife spotting in the waves, or enjoying working on their photography skills. Treks through nature preserves, state parks, and even adventures on coastal dune lakes will turn your Thanksgiving away into a one of a kind adventure.

Skip the Restaurant and Order to Go

If you’re looking forward to leaving the cooking to someone else this year, but don’t want to risk spreading germs in a large restaurant dining room—consider ordering a Thanksgiving meal to go from one of the many mouthwatering stops that are open along 30A. Instead of making a reservation, place an order, and enjoy your delicious holiday away meal in the comfort of your vacation rental, near the ones you love, and paired with the perfect waterside view.

Book a Stay with Holiday Style

Whether you’re headed to 30A as a small traveling crew or hoping to gather with the same family members as every other year, just within a different setting. Booking a vacation rental with holiday style can elevate your experience. Those visitors that book with I Love 30A will enjoy picking from a wide variety of properties—the majority of which host fantastic full kitchens for those groups in the mood to stick with that traditional meal plan. Complete with spacious counters, modern appliances, and plenty of cookware and utensils, guests will find it easier than ever to serve up up the turkey, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes with ease. When it’s time to dine, large dining room tables will do the trick, but guests can also make it an open-air meal by turning balconies, patios, or decks into alfresco holiday moments.

Many of our properties also feature wonderfully tasteful and comfortable furnishings throughout, giving guests every reason to settle in with their favorite holiday movie after an amazing meal. Open-concept designs give visitors the space and light they need to move easily between living, dining, and sleeping areas during a stay, and whether you’ve booked one large rental or several independent stays, everyone will rest easy knowing they’ve created a holiday plan that keeps them close to the fun. From cozy fireplaces to private hot tubs, your Thanksgiving can even include those luxurious touches you might not find under more traditional circumstances.
