Americans enjoy so few days of vacation as it is, so why spend so much of a holiday away from work and school cooking up dinner.

DK Eyewitness Travel today released a list of the 10 Best Places to Travel for Thanksgiving. Selected by DK’s in-house travel experts, these destinations offer so much more than college football, turkey trots and mashed potatoes. Instead, gear up for traditional Hawaiian luaus, world-class skiing, ziplining through the rainforest and sampling gingerbread and glühwein.

In compiling the Best Places to Travel for Thanksgiving, DK’s experts selected destinations that have more to offer than a change of scenery. Many of these destinations allow travelers to check off bucket list items, like seeing the Northern Lights dance in Iceland and meandering the world-famous Christmas Markets in Munich, Germany.

“Americans enjoy so few days of vacation as it is, so why spend so much of a holiday away from work and school cooking up dinner. Go ahead and trade your apron for a day of surfing capped off with kalua pork and poi at a Hawaiian luau in Oahu,” said Georgina Dee, publishing director, DK Travel. “Or catch fish at Pike Place Market and explore the craft beer scene in Seattle. Do something new and different this Thanksgiving holiday. Our list includes a broad mix of destinations with something for everyone whether you like to get outdoors, enjoy local traditions or explore culinary favorites unique to new locales.”

DK Eyewitness Travel, an award-winning travel guide book publisher, has more than 200 travel titles under the Eyewitness Travel and Top 10 brands. Many popular U.S. destinations are covered in travel guides like DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: USA, which was updated and re-released earlier this year.
