Thanksgiving Weekend Fun! It is a busy time for travel. A lot of people will be trying to get home to spend time with their loved ones. If you’ll be one of the many weary travelers this year, you should visit GotoBus.com, one of the web’s leading marketplaces for affordable bus tickets, to find the route that will get you where you need to go. Thanksgiving dinner tastes great, but it tastes even better when surrounded by those closest to you!

New York

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the most anticipated event on the holiday, and this year, marks the 89th year the parade has been running. Not only do crowds of people line the streets of Manhattan to see floats of their favorite cartoon characters, like Snoopy and Spongebob, but there will also be performances from talented marching bands, cheerleaders, dance teams, and more! This year’s parade will also feature musical performances from crowd favorites like Jordin Sparks, Prince Royce, Train, Andra Day, and Shawn Mendes. Be sure to check out the official website for the complete list! Even though thousands of people line up on the streets of Manhattan to watch the parade in person, even more people tune in on their televisions to watch from all around the US. Be sure to book tickets to New York to see this huge celebration in person before they sell out!

Boston

The very first Thanksgiving was held in the Greater Boston Area in Plymouth, MA when the Pilgrims broke bread with the Native Americans who lived in the area. Plimoth Plantation is a living museum (actors will be in costumes and acting out what life was like back then) where you can see a replica of the original community they established in 1620. We can’t think of many better ways to celebrate Thanksgiving than by reliving the history that is behind the holiday. Book bus tickets to Boston for an authentic Turkey Day experience!

Chicago

New York’s not the only major American city that hosts a parade! Chicago is another huge urban area (and it’s cleaner than NYC!) that knows the best way to get down, hosting the annual McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade. Beginning on State Street downtown, the parade runs from 8 to 11 AM. Though it’s been held since 1934, McDonald’s became the first title sponsor in 1984. The mascot is Teddy Turkey, a plump, fun-loving bird who goes around spreading holiday cheer. Hang out with Teddy by booking bus tickets to Chicago now!

Florida

The Seniors First Turkey Trot 5K has been a Thanksgiving tradition in the Orlando area for the past 25 years. It’s a race around Lake Eola to help benefit the area’s senior citizens. Participants are invited to wear Pilgrim attire or turkey costumes and race to the finish! This is definitely a great opportunity to take some pictures of people in ridiculous outfits! There are also countless theme parks in the Orlando area to help keep your family entertained. Book your bus tickets to Florida now at an unbeatable low rate!

Los Angeles

On November 29th, Los Angeles will host the Hollywood Christmas Parade. OK, we know, it’s not for Thanksgiving, but that seems a little early for Christmas, doesn’t it? This year, magician duo Penn and Teller have been selected as the Grand Marshalls for the parade, so it’s sure to be a magical experience. The parade begins at 5 PM on Hollywood Boulevard. Book your bus tickets to California now!

Detroit

After a few tough years, it finally seems like Detroit is back on the upswing. This is great news for the automotive capital of the US. You can join the local community in celebrating and show off your patriotism by joining America’s Thanksgiving Parade. It’s the second-oldest parade in the country (after Macy’s), and features similar floats. The climax of the parade is the arrival of Santa Claus, who announces the beginning of the Christmas season. Book tickets to Detroit from cities all around the around the country!
