Thanksgiving is an important holiday for Americans—a day of family, football, and feasting on traditional dishes, such as turkey, cranberry sauce, and stuffing. It’s also a day for giving thanks for blessings, and almost every city around the country celebrates in some way. These are some of the best options.
