Bring your family to San Diego and celebrate Thanksgiving under sunny California skies! You'll find turkey trots and turkey dinners to mark the holiday and make memories with your family.
Turkey Trots for Fun and Good
Take your pick of turkey trots to get in shape, raise money for charity, and burn up calories before filling up on turkey and stuffing. The San Diego Run for the Hungry has 5K and 10K races, and starts at Horton Plaza before heading through the scenic Gaslamp and East Village neighborhoods. See a more rugged side of San Diego at the Turkey Trot 10K trail run through Penasquitos Canyon.
Turkey Dinners and Sightseeing
Enjoy views of beautiful San Diego harbor on a Thanksgiving dinner cruise. Hornblower Cruises' buffet comes with all the traditional trimmings. When you aren't filling your plate or sitting to eat it, get up and dance to the DJ. After the ship docks, stroll along the waterfront to enjoy more harbor views.
Have your Thanksgiving Dinner with the animals at the San Diego Zoo. Dining options include a buffet or a 3-course sit-down meal at Albert's Restaurant. Spiced pumpkin cheesecake with cranberry currant compote is a perfect seasonal dessert! There's also a Thanksgiving buffet at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
