As we say farewell to the long and carefree days of summer, the fall season brings delights of a different sort: short days, brilliant foliage in an assortment of vibrant colors, and the beginning of the holiday season. Thanksgiving is a time for family and feasting, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay home to enjoy the full extent of the holiday; when you visit Cape Cod during this extended weekend, you will truly understand the meaning of being thankful—especially when you choose New England Vacation Rentals for your warm and welcoming New England Thanksgiving escape!

Waking Up in Paradise

When you think of previous Thanksgivings, chances are your most prominent memories are those of hard work, too many people, and maybe the taste of pumpkin pie. When you wake up Thanksgiving morning on Cape Cod, however, everything changes; the air cool and crisp, and the sounds of family members laughing and chatting as they watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade on the state of the art television will make you eager to jump out of bed and start feeling thankful! Enjoying a coffee on the patio, a walk around the neighborhood, and the delicious feeling that ANYTHING is possible. Your Thanksgiving in paradise is destined to be a memorable one!

Feasting with the Family During Your New England Thanksgiving

We’re always thankful for food, but at Thanksgiving the meals we eat are taken up a notch or two, and this year you have the choice of how you want to experience the meal. Choosing to create a meal from scratch is easy; our fully equipped kitchens are spacious, cheerful, and designed to take the chore out of meal prep, but you may not really feel like doing the work yourself. The Cape Cod Thanksgiving Train, departing from Falmouth Station, offers a special New England Thanksgiving feast you’ll dream about for years to come. Lasting three hours and featuring a five-course meal to be enjoyed as you explore the landscape of Cape Cod, it’s a unique way to celebrate the holiday!

Black Friday Shopping

For many people, Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same without braving the stores for a little Black Friday shopping, and just because you aren’t at home doesn’t mean you have to give up the deals and bargains! Smart travelers know that our vacation rentals include washers and dryers, so they can pack light and save room for the goodies, trinkets, and souvenirs they want to bring home, and our Black Friday shopping specials are guaranteed to fill up ALL the empty spaces in your luggage! Currently our favorite place to shop on that most wonderful day of the year is at Blake & Co. Located at 47 Main Street in Orleans and offering a sweet selection of jewelry, accessories, and home décor items, we’re pretty sure it’s going to be the exclamation point to your time on Cape Cod!
