Places to Visit During Thanksgiving This Year With a Luxury Rental Car
We all know travel is a major component for many during the holidays. And travel… well, it tends to get repetitive. But what if you could make traveling for Thanksgiving this year a memory you’ll never forget? You can thanks to CarHopper!
If you’re looking to visit either Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, the Hamptons, or New York City next Thanksgiving, you’re going to need a good car to get there. Buying a new luxurious or exotic car perhaps isn’t in your budget, though, despite being a dream.
How many times have you envisioned visiting cruising around Miami Beach or Beverly Hills during Thanksgiving in a hot Lamborghini or Ferrari? Don’t think it’s impossible. You can rent one at rates you wouldn’t believe through CarHopper!
So what events should you visit in the above cities next Thanksgiving? Take a look at some places you can drive to in style.
Events in Miami During Thanksgiving
Those of you who’ve never been to Miami on Thanksgiving have a lot more to see than you think! Even if most people equate all things Thanksgiving with cooler climates, Miami knows how to create the holiday spirit.
One of the things you must see is the annual tree lighting at Bayfront Park, which occurs the day after Turkey Day. This is the official kickoff to the holiday season in the downtown Miami area. Using a 50-foot tree, the event competes easily with the Rockefeller Center ceremony.
In addition, try visiting nearby Mercado de San Miguel, a celebration of Madrid. It’s an outdoor food festival you don’t want to miss with tapas, ham, paella, gazpacho, gambas, and fish. All the food comes from top Spanish chefs and vendors.
Afterward, go see the Miami Panthers play some hockey! This last Thanksgiving, they played the Chicago Blackhawks at BB&T Center during Thanksgiving weekend.
Imagine being able to drive to these events in a great luxury car… like a Tesla Model X for only $360 per day!
Events in Los Angeles During Thanksgiving
Those of you who haven’t been to Los Angeles for Thanksgiving have just as much fun awaiting. Yes, the west coast is warmer, but who has ever said that driving in the snow is more fun anyway?
To get started for your L.A. Thanksgiving weekend, you can’t do without one of the most famous events: The Hollywood Christmas Parade. You should see this at least once in your lifetime. It’s really the west coast version of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Also worth attending is the Burbank Community YMCA Turkey Trot, which attracts 2,500 participants every year. You’re free to either run, walk, or just jog here. Those who go the fastest get special cash prizes and medals.
Other Turkey Trots are in the area, including one directly in Los Angeles and Dana Point.
When attending the parade in Hollywood, you’ll gain a lot of attention when you suddenly pull up in a 2017 Rolls Royce Dawn. You can rent this for only $1,980 per day, making it a worthwhile investment if in L.A. for the entire Thanksgiving weekend.
Events in Las Vegas During Thanksgiving
There’s never a dull moment in Las Vegas, and this is especially true during the holidays. You’ll really be able to show off a luxury car rental here since you’ll likely be driving up and down the strip.
As usual, you’ll find all the Vegas glitz you can hold with some of their annual Thanksgiving events. One event you can’t miss is the Downtown Summerlin Holiday Parade. Several of these take place around here Thanksgiving weekend with floats designed for children and adults.
Take part in Black Friday shopping in LINQ Promenade, a massive mall you have to see to believe. Ride the nearby High Roller Observation Wheel for spectacular views.
It’s possible to rent a Lamborghini Huracan for only $1,100 per day to enjoy all these events. Don’t hesitate to drive to the usual ongoing shows throughout Vegas in style.
Events in San Francisco During Thanksgiving
You’ll get a little more seasonable weather in San Francisco for Thanksgiving, but nothing overly cold. They always have something going on around Thanksgiving, so it’s time to drive there next November in a cool car to take advantage of the festivities.
One event to see first is the tree lighting in San Fran’s famous Union Square. It’s annually held the day after Thanksgiving (as in most cities), and the tree is always donated by Macy’s.
An ice rink is also available in Union Square, showing how similar the setup is to Rockefeller Center in NYC.
As with other parts of America, some shops in the San Francisco area are open on Thanksgiving Day with crazy sales. If you’re so inclined, you can shop in Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39, or Chinatown.
Rent a Porsche 911 for only $1,079 per day, something you can do now in advance to get your trip on the books.
Events in New York City During Thanksgiving
You won’t want to miss out on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
It may seem more exciting to visit NYC for Thanksgiving based on the overwhelming obviousness of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
You have a lot of other things to take in during this weekend as well. Absolutely don’t miss The Rockettes’ Radio City Christmas Spectacular after you see the parade.
The Brooklyn Holiday Bazaar is also worth a visit, especially in touring the Brooklyn area. Things sold here are all from local makers with select national products. It pays to take in a tour of the Brooklyn area afterward, something you can do in part with your luxury car.
Don’t forget about seeing a production of “The Nutcracker” at Lincoln Center before you go. Attending a swanky event like this is going to mean looking as classy as possible!
We can help you get luxurious with a 2016 Mercedes-Benz S rental for only $674 per day. It’s a price you won’t find anywhere else, especially for a car of this caliber.
