With the last few weeks in November being the end of Hurricane Season, you can still score off-season prices at hotels and resorts in Grand Cayman. Thanksgiving isn’t a holiday in Grand Cayman, so everything is open. We spent Thanksgiving here a few years ago and enjoyed a perfect family evening at a Beach Front restaurant dining on the local “catch of the day.” This was one of our most relaxing Thanksgiving holiday weekends ever. We had a blast Diving, Snorkeling and hanging out at the beach.
We even found a little time to take one of our best Christmas cards pictures – ever. A week to be thankful for indeed. Check out our grand Cayman Tips
If you are looking for an action pact Thanksgiving Holiday, you might want to try a theme park vacation at Universal Studios. We are told that Thanksgiving Day is a little less crowded, so consider spending Thursday in the park and enjoying your family dinner at one of their great restaurants over the weekend. You don’t need to be in New York to enjoy a Thanksgiving Day Parade as Universal holds a “Macy’s Holiday Parade” complete with giant balloons and an appearance by Santa! Check out our Universal Studios Tips here.
