Although we all think of Thanksgiving as a time to spend with extended friends and family, the long weekend presents a great opportunity to skedaddle out of town with the more immediate family, or with that one significant other. (Aunt Sally may not be happy about it, but you won’t be there to hear the complaint!) You can still catch the football game and possibly a turkey dinner (although there may be better fare on the menu!). The end of November presents both warm and snowy options for private jet travel-so pick your climate and head north or south for an alternative Thanksgiving holiday and great getaway.
The Viceroy Hotel, Zihuatenejo, Mexico
Featured recently on condenasttraveler.com, the beach front Viceroy Hotel in Zihuatenejo, Mexico offers everything you need for a few relaxing days on the beach. Zihuatenejo is the sleepier cousin in the bustling Ixtapa resort area, although still offers plenty of choices for dining out and water activities. Located right on Playa la Ropa, and just a 20 minute cab ride from the airport, you can find yourself relaxing in the warm sun with a cold beer or margarita in hand after a quick and easy trip. The service at the Viceroy is top notch, and you will find you want for nothing, except uno mas cerveza.
The Four Seasons, Santa Barbara, CA
Nestled on the coast north of Los Angeles between the Santa Inez mountains and the sea, Santa Barbara feels a world away from its southern California capital. Book a private jet to take advantage of Santa Barbara’s year round temperate weather that has earned it the nickname of the American Riviera. At The Four Seasons Resort: the Biltmore Santa Barbara, you will experience the lap of luxury in laid back California style. The resort offers much to do in November including hiking, golf, tennis, not to mention lazing about on the perfect beach. This resort feels old school in only the best ways, such as traditional service and décor. The Thanksgiving menu is a far cry from Aunt Sally’s candied sweet potatoes, and may keep you coming back for many Thanksgivings to come.
The Ritz Carlton, Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii
Here today, gone to Maui. Private jet travel has never been easier. Head to the Ritz-Carlton in Kapalua for a great vacation for kids and grown-ups. The native Hawaiian décor, from hotel lobby to each hotel suite, is present in every detail and the resort as a whole oozes Hawaiian hospitality. The kids will love Jean Michael-Cousteu’s Ambassadors of the Environment program, and you will love the poolside couple’s cabanas at the outdoor spa.
The Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada
The Fairmont Banff Springs hotel has been serving up luxury in the mountains for 125 years. Skiing is under way by the Thanksgiving weekend and is one of the best North American choices for early winter slopes. Located in Banff National Park, and a UNESCO world heritage site, it doesn’t get much more beautiful and winter wonderlandy than this. The charming town of Banff, Alberta is just a short stroll away.
Sun Valley, Idaho
Sun Valley, Idaho offers the avid skier, or skiing family, a number of wonderful options for a fun and snow packed Thanksgiving holiday. Charming cottages, historic lodges, or luxury condominium- pick your poison for lodging all within easy reach of skiing, shopping and entertainment. Here is great site from which to book lodging and lift tickets: http://www.visitsunvalley.com/
