Did you know seafood was served at the first Thanksgiving? While Americans traditionally feast on turkey with stuffing and cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving, freshly caught fish, clams and mussels were on the menu at the harvest celebration shared by the Pilgrims and Wampanoag in 1621, according to Smithsonian Magazine. And while there is no bad time for fishing on the Grand Strand, the mild weather of late fall and winter draw schools of red fish and sea trout, and plenty of shellfish. Of course, you could always skip the cooking and visit a local seafood restaurant for the catch of the day.

Now that we’ve given you a brief history lesson, here’s a scientific fact. A recent study found that traveling with kids is good for their brain development, making them happier and smarter. By November, kids are already feeling burnt out and ready for a break. Instead of staying home like you do every year, why not plan to spend Thanksgiving at the beach bonding and building family memories — stress free. There’s no better way to recharge those batteries for learning.

Of course, Thanksgiving is a time for families to gather together. While a small family vacation is something to be thankful for, there’s no reason you couldn’t bring Grandma, Grandpa, and the rest of the crew, and have your holiday feast catered. By booking a November holiday on the Grand Strand, you can save some dough with discounted off-season rates at rental properties large enough to accommodate the whole family. Best of all, we’re offering a free Pumpkin Pie for all Thanksgiving bookings!
