Enjoy Thanksgiving with your family in warm, sunny San Diego. There are lots of great ways to spend time together, from running races for charity to strolling the beach to sitting down to a traditional dinner.
Not everyone is lucky enough to have a family to share the holiday with. The Father Joe's Villages Thanksgiving 5K on November 23 runs through beautiful Balboa Park and raises money for the homeless; the charity serves nearly 1,000,000 meals per year! If there's another charity dear to you, check this list of Thanksgiving Turkey Trots to find other fun runs and support your cause.
Stroll the Beach
Daytime temps run up to the low 70s in San Diego during November--perfect weather for a stroll along the shore. Pick from more than a dozen beautiful beaches to take in the views, or don a wetsuit and try surfing the waves. The low tides at this time of year mean you can spot lots of ocean critters in our tidepools.
Enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner while you're on vacation. Enjoy waterfront views with your turkey and trimmings at Firefly Eatery at The Dana on Mission Bay. Or look back to sure while you indulge in a Thanksgiving Dinner Cruise complete with DJ and dancing.
Get Ready for Christmas
Thanksgiving is the start of the Christmas shopping season, and take advantage of the bargains you'll find in our malls on Black Friday. Head to Seaport Village for Surfing Santa's arrival. The jolly gent shows up on November 25, complete with parade.
If you want to spend the holiday exploring all the great things to do in San Diego, the Dana's location puts it all right at hand. But you can also have a great time with each other enjoying the amenities at the Dana, including onsite water sports and bicycle rentals. Since we're a pet-friendly hotel, the entire family is welcome to relax and enjoy. Click here to make a reservation for Thanksgiving or any time.
