Best Places to Spend Thanksgiving


The Go RVing blog takes us to America's Best Places to Celebrate the Holidays on the Road.


The holiday season is upon us. It is a time for visiting friends and family, dining on delicious seasonal treats, and attending plenty of celebratory festivals. Whether you are headed for a sunny escape or adventuring into a winter wonderland, spending the holidays in an RV will create memories the whole family can treasure for a lifetime.

Wondering where to spend the holiday on wheels? Here are some of America’s greatest places to celebrate.

  • Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

  • New Orleans, Louisiana

  • Nashville, Tennessee
  • Christmas, Florida
  • Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Leavenworth, Washington

Here is more Thanksgiving on the Go!

  • Virginia Thanksgiving Festival, Charles City, Virginia

  • America's Hometown Thanksgiving, Plymouth, Massachusetts


  • Rocking Horse Ranch, Highland, NY
  • Red Apple Farm, Phillipston, Massachuetts
  • Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia

All of these places share the same holiday greetings: good food, smiling people, and beautiful scenery.


Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs!

 Cooking in the Wild

If you are on the road in a Roadtrek, or similar Class B+, during the holidays, cooking a Thanksgiving meal takes on a different dimension. Great for the outdoor family, it is rough on those of us that expect a gourmet spread.


For most RVers that love to boondock, this is what they live for on holidays. Get out there with nature and cook over an open fire. If this is your first time, follow the directions here and turkey with all the trimmings are yours to enjoy.

Turkey? Cooked In My Oven?

Thanksgiving Dinner in Your Small Oven, Oh yeah!

Check out this blog for great tips for cooking in a small oven.


"If you are cooking in your RV this season, do not let a small kitchen get in the way of having a spread that impresses even the in-laws!"

Cooking Thanksgiving dinner in a small area, like an RV kitchen, is challenging; although, not as challenging as the Pilgrim’s first Thanksgiving. They did not have any ovens!"

Some creative ideas here, but the most helpful tip for me was "cut the turkey in half." This is not as easy as it sounds, although it is mentioned here that the friendly butcher in the meat department at the market performs this chore.
