Enjoying a St Simons Island Thanksgiving

The holiday season has arrived and it’s time to start making the plans for your Thanksgiving dinner, but this year, you just aren’t feeling the “same-old, same-old” routine of year’s past. You’re tired of working for weeks to get your house in ship-shape for family members that are just going to spill red wine on your great-grandma’s white lace tablecloth, inhale food you spent hours preparing without even tasting it, then all leave in a mass exodus and stick you with the cleaning! This is the year you should take the game on the road and count your blessings in a new place, and we think St. Simons Island should be that new place!

Count Your Blessings as You Stroll on the Beach

Early mornings in St. Simons Island are one of our favorite times of the day, and during the fall we wish this time would last forever! Walk along white sand beaches, feeling a chill in the air as the sounds of the sea surround you, and take a moment to contemplate all that is wonderful in your life—including this moment right now!

Watch the Macy’s St Simons Island Thanksgiving Parade

Just because you are changing it up this year, doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all your traditions; the large flat screen televisions and comfy furnishings in your St. Simons Island vacation rental mean your seats for the parade will be better than ever before! And the great weather allows you to watch the parade with the windows open. If your cottage is beachside, the sounds of the ocean will make a wonderful accompaniment to the parade!

Thanksgiving Buffet at the King & Prince

Have you ever noticed that food prepared by others tends to taste so much better than the meals you have to prepare yourself? The King & Prince offers a Buffet Brunch from 11 AM to 7PM, allowing you to eat to your heart’s content while others clean up after you, and you don’t have to stick to turkey! Their buffet features a combination of everything delicious, from omelets to seafood to steak (and of course, turkey!).

The Best Part of Thanksgiving

Sharing a St Simons Island Thanksgiving with those you love most is our favorite part of the entire holiday, and if you reserve your SSI Rentals luxury vacation escape today, this turkey day promises to outshine all others; even if there aren’t any leftovers!
