For the past few years, many of us have been stuck at home over the Thanksgiving long weekend. While for some people, a Thanksgiving weekend at home is perfect, however, if you have the travel bug you may have the itch to finally travel again. Thinking of taking a short trip this October long weekend? Here are some of our favourite places to travel over the Thanksgiving weekend. 


The Poconos in Pennsylvania is known as a beautiful place for couples to take a romantic trip.  This Thanksgiving long weekend, consider travelling to the Poconos for its stunning hiking trails, state parks, and many waterfalls. If you’re not a nature enthusiast, however, you can choose to visit charming historic sites like the Coal and Mine Museum, Quiet Valley Historical Farms, and the 19th-century Eckey Miners’ Village.  

New York City 

There’s never a wrong time to visit NYC, but the Big Apple looks especially beautiful during the fall with its rich trees, parks, and walkways. Enjoy the beauty and excitement of New York while avoiding the summer heat and the summer crowds, the delicious taste of autumn treats from some of the best restaurants and bakeries in the country, and for those who love fashion, enjoy fall fashion week in the heart of the city. 


Enjoy posh and sophisticated shopping and nightlife this Thanksgiving by choosing to travel to  Montreal. Montreal is known for its phenomenal shopping district with over 1,200 chain stores, its gorgeous indoor and outdoor fall markets, as well as its many museums and art installations. Visit the beauty of the architecture in Old Montreal, try delicious Montreal beers in their many microbreweries, and find cultural enrichment in its museums including Montreal’s Museum of Fine Arts.
