Family Time

Spend your Thanksgiving in Atlantic Beach

The start of Thanksgiving for many families begin with the adults and children, gathering in front of the television watching The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. As the aroma of the turkey cooking in the oven or the preparation begins in the kitchen. Spend part of the day spending time with your loved ones by playing board games or playing a game of cards. Then have a wonderful Thanksgiving meal sitting in the dining room of your rental and taking a walk on the beach afterwards. Spending the day with your family means you get all the quality time in the world with them. Sometimes we all like to be too busy to sit down and not a do a thing once in a while. Make this holiday the best one you’ve had in a long time.

Beautiful Views

Even during the off-season, Atlantic Beach is nothing but beautiful to visit. Spending Thanksgiving watching the waves roll in and out while you wait for dinner to be ready is a perfect day. You may see many families on the beach enjoying the sunlight or you may see families having their pictures taken they can use as their Christmas cards. Taking a nice long walk on the beach while watching the sunset or collecting seashells with the kids can be just as exciting as being at the beach for the holiday weekend.
