The reality of Thanksgiving is that we often don’t feel very thankful for the holiday, as we spend weeks preparing for a single meal that is devoured within minutes. We shop, we clean, we cook, we clean, and then when the meal is done, we clean some more; what is there to be thankful about that? If you are looking for ways to re-discover the spirit of the holiday, however, a Florida getaway and a stay in one of our Rosemary Beach holiday hideaways is the perfect way to do so, and this guide to all that makes a Rosemary Beach Thanksgiving special will ensure that every minute of your stay is filled with fun, excitement, and thankfulness!

30A Thanksgiving 10K, November 25

Every year regret the calories after the biggest feast of the year has been devoured, but since you are doing things differently, why not start out with a pre-emptive Turkey Day 5K? Allowing you to eat all the stuffing you want and not have to choose between chocolate and pumpkin pies, (you can enjoy both!) the 5K and 1-mile Fun Run will burn the calories before you have started consuming! Starting and finishing right here in Rosemary Beach, the views of pristine beaches will help you forget that you are actually exercising on a day devoted to gluttony and thanks!

Dining Out

The best part of getting away from home on Thanksgiving is being able to enjoy the fruits of someone elses labors; in other words, letting someone else do the cooking! The Pearl’s Thanksgiving Buffet, located at 63 Main Street has been a tradition for visitors and residents of Rosemary Beach for almost as long as it has been open and we can promise; this traditional feast tastes so good you will forget that the stuffing is not your Aunt May’s recipe!

Stay Home and Play

We get it. You took one look at the fully equipped kitchens in our Rosemary Beach escapes and all you could think about was stuffing a fat turkey in the oven! Falling in love with our kitchens is just part of the fun you can have while here, especially when you choose a home with a pool or hot tub! Start the day watching the big Thanksgiving Day Parade on state of the art televisions, finish off the big meal with an even bigger cannonball into the pool, and end the day dreaming about holiday lights and Christmas presents in our cloud soft beds!
