Sometimes we’re steeped in tradition and relish the comfort zone of certain holiday foods — roasted turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and a spread of vegetables and desserts.
There’s no reason you can’t hang onto your traditional Thanksgiving dinner and relax while watching football. You can also take advantage of the four day holiday weekend and use Busrental to get away with friends and family.
While you have lots of entertainment and activities venues to choose from, one of our favorite locations engages you in experiencing our nation’s history.
Enjoy a Historical Thanksgiving
Take a trip to Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Step back in time to 1620 and hop aboard the Mayflower II, which is a true-to-life scale reproduction of the original Mayflower that brought Pilgrims to the United States. You can visit the 17th Century English Village, which replicates the time period and small farming community built along the Plymouth Harbor shore. Wander through kitchen gardens and watch costumed villagers acting out the roles of Plymouth Colony residents.
Find out how Native Americans lived in the 17th century at the Wampanoag Homesite. You’ll see Native Americans in historical costumes, which were typically deerskin, and can listen to them explain their heritage, tell stories and teach you about their customs.
You’ll also see rare breed animals, such as sheep, goats, cows, eastern wild turkeys and Dorking fowl. The animals are representative of the time period. However, due to agricultural changes since the 1600’s, many have low breeding populations and are part of the Plymouth Plantation’s effort to save endangered breeds.
Travel Safely on Thanksgiving Weekend
Renting a charter bus is one of the most affordable and safest ways to travel with a group. You don’t have to worry about traffic, directions or parking. But, aside from safety, charter buses are also the greenest form of ground transportation in the country. Ride safely and do your part to help save the environment.
