Spend Thanksgiving on Florida's Space Coast

Thanksgiving 2019 on Florida’s Space Coast

Have an attitude of gratitude this year!

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever enough.” ~Oprah Winfrey~

It is already that time of the year where gratitude is the theme, but how often do we get trapped in forgetting that being grateful can and should be an everyday way of living? Sometimes getting out of a routine will help spark a change in thinking. How about changing gears this year and start a new tradition with a trip to Florida’s Space Coast? Or if you call Florida home, why not see what other areas like to do during this time of the year. Either way, whether you are a local or a guest, the Space Coast offers something for everyone to have an attitude of gratitude this year!

Serve or Be Served

Planning and prepping for a proper Thanksgiving meal means starting preparations days or maybe weeks before the big day. Perhaps you’re not too sure you want to be the one to do all the serving and this year will look a little different.  Doesn’t it sound good to be the one being served instead? Check out some of the Space Coast’s top restaurants offering yummy servings. It’s recommended to call ahead for reservations.

Stay Active

When you want to eat all the food without a care in the world, what better way to make sure you can eat all the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie than to burn some calories before and after the big meal? Slip on those running shoes and make room for all that food.

Deal or No Deal

Shop ‘til you drop and see if you go home with some deals during the post-Thanksgiving Day shopping extravaganza. Whether you prefer the big-name department stores or wanting to find unique items, the Space Coast has plenty of opportunities to either start or finish up your holiday shopping.

A Family Affair

Spending time with the ones we love, whether it’s with family or friends, makes the holidays all the more fun. Here are a few activities that everyone, no matter the age, can enjoy together! Hanging out as a family isn’t that hard when you spend Thanksgiving here.

Whether you are a local or a guest of the Space Coast this Thanksgiving, these are just a few ways to enjoy the day as we remember the joy of being thankful.
