Thanksgiving is only weeks away – and do you really want to do all that cooking and cleaning again? Treat yourself to a Thanksgiving getaway instead! Choose from over 50 different options throughout the U.S, Canada, Mexico, and even Belize. Spend an exotic Thanksgiving in the rainforest at Cotton Tree Lodge in Belize and enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner along with waterfalls, Mayan villages, ancient ruins, caves, hiking, horseback riding, and kayaking. Those interested can arrange volunteer opportunities with the lodge's partner organization, Sustainable Harvest International, and give something back over the holiday.

Looking for something more traditional? Washington Plantation in North Georgia offes you the comfort of a real down-home Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, November 27, with none of the stress of doing it yourself. "Come for roast turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, vegetables, fresh cranberry sauce, and all the fixins! We're serving family style in our dining room in front of the fireplace. Our family has always convened for dinner around 5 p.m., but there will be plenty of appetizers to get you through the early football games, starting around 3. Just book two or more nights in any available room (including Thanksgiving Day, 11/27/08), and we'll do the rest, all for our regular rates plus $40 a person, including wine and beer. We hope you'll honor our home with your presence for Thanksgiving Day."
