Experience Thanksgiving

Why spend your Thanksgiving tolerating cranky relatives or hordes of crazed shoppers when you can escape to the North Country and enjoy a peaceful Thanksgiving surrounded by idyllic New England scenery?

The North Country offers plenty of wonderful lodging options over the Thanksgiving holiday, from luxurious bed and breakfasts to comfortable, rustic lodges. At Lopstick Lodge, you can get a cabin and easily prepare your Thanksgiving dinner in their full kitchens.

Work up an appetite Thanksgiving morning by running in the North Country Community Recreation Center’s annual Turkey Trot 5K. Afterwards, get a jump on your holiday shopping at the area’s many stores. Find charming gifts at shops like Fiddleheads, Treats and Treasures, The Old Appletree and North Country Marketplace. You can also find gifts at the Pittsburg Ridge Runners Annual Craft Fair on Saturday, November 24.

Cap off your North Country Thanksgiving holiday with a fun hike, or enjoy some late fall bird hunting. 

Or you can just relax and enjoy doing nothing at all. There’s no place better for that.
