Enjoy the blessings of Thanksgiving with friends and family in Fort Lauderdale this year. Bring your crowd to this beachside city where the temperatures range from the high 70’s to mid 80’s in November – perfect for shaking off the winter blues! With plenty of Fort Lauderdale vacation rentals to choose from, there is no shortage of places to stay with the whole family.

Thanksgiving revolves around a meal and there is no shortage of places to eat in Fort Lauderdale. You can go for the traditional turkey with mashed potatoes and broccoli casserole at Village Cafe or go for something new and exciting like a dinner cruise. See Millionaire’s Row from the beautiful Jungle Queen. For dinner, feast on barbecued ribs, shrimp, and chicken along with great wines, liquors, and sodas. There is even a variety show to keep you laughing. This is a fresh, new way to enjoy Thanksgiving with the family.

If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground while enjoying Thanksgiving dinner, consider a Polynesian dinner show. Amazing drums, talented dancers, vibrant costumes and fantastic food all combine to become your new Thanksgiving tradition. At Mai-Kai Polynesian Dinner Show you can watch fire batons twirling while you savor lobster bisque, egg rolls, turkey or ham and all of the familiar side dishes – stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce – it’s all there. Oh, and don’t forget dessert – apple or pumpkin pie with vanilla ice cream.

Maybe Thanksgiving doesn’t include feasting on food in your family. Maybe you feast on sunshine and sand instead? Head for the beach and enjoy people-watching, shelling or some volleyball. Grab your snorkel gear or your fishing rods and some sunscreen. The water temperature is still a warm 80 degrees in November so take off your shoes and splash in the surf.

You could choose to keep your shoes on and go for a walk…a ghost walk. These narrated walking tours last an hour and a half. Not only could you see ghosts and strange sights, but you will also learn so much history about Fort Lauderdale from the knowledgeable guides. Hear about the rum runners, Cooley Landing Massacre, and the gangsters of old Fort Lauderdale.

Thanksgiving in Fort Lauderdale can be steeped in traditional or totally new and fresh – it’s your vacation! Create a different tradition this year with a trip to Fort Lauderdale.
