For many, the beach is synonymous with summer vacation. While sugar-white sands and shimmering emerald waves make for an unforgettable warm-weather getaway, they also pair perfectly with a fall or winter trip! If you’re looking for a new way to experience the holiday season, look no further than 30A: One of the best places to go in Florida for Thanksgiving! Below, we’ve compiled just a few of the reasons why you need to gather here for the holidays. For a complete list of the best local restaurants, shops, and seasonal events, be sure to request access to our complimentary YFAB’s Vacation Guide!
Here’s Why 30A Is One of the Best Places to Go in Florida for Thanksgiving
Beautiful Weather Year-Round
Sick of the snow? There’s no better place to escape the doldrums of early winter than 30A! Here, you and your family will experience comfortable temperatures and plenty of sun. Though nighttime and early morning temperatures can be chilly this time of year (normally in the 50s and 60s), the average daytime high in November is 71 degrees. That sure beats freezing temperatures and piles of snow!
Time Together Is a Cinch
One of the most important parts of Thanksgiving is time together with family and friends. When you rent a private, beachside vacation rental in 30A, you have plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy one another’s company. You’ll love our large dining rooms with plenty of seating and outdoor patios perfect for hosting a breezy Thanksgiving feast, ocean in view.
If your family is one that prefers being out and about on Thanksgiving Day, there are also several fantastic 30A restaurants where you can grab breakfast, lunch, or Thanksgiving dinner. What’s more? The best 30A beaches are just a stone’s throw away! Who wouldn’t want a Thanksgiving complete with something fun like a beach bonfire?
You Can Let an Expert Do the Cooking
Don’t feel like cooking on Thanksgiving Day? Leave the stress of feeding a big group of people to a private chef in 30A! Every Your Friend at the Beach vacation rental comes with the option of adding Concierge Services. Utilizing our private chef (or grocery service) is the perfect way to sit back, relax, and enjoy an artisanal meal with your family without the stress of cooking, serving, and cleaning.
Whether you’re traveling with a few family members or celebrating with the entire crew, a Your Friend at the Beach vacation rental is the best lodging choice you can make. We recommend checking out Villa Coyaba 303, one of our best condos for families! This 4-bedroom, 3-bath gem is located just steps away from the shoreline (you can take in the view from this condo’s spacious balcony). Everyone will love playing games and enjoying delicious Thanksgiving favorites around the spacious dining table. This condo is especially ideal for hosting holiday dinners—the recently updated, fully stocked kitchen features everything you need to create a culinary masterpiece! In fact, all of our Gulf-front condos feature spacious, gourmet kitchens stocked with everything you need to create an unforgettable Thanksgiving dinner.
