Up until last year, we never considered traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. For starters, it’s one of the busiest times of the year and we try to avoid going at those times whenever possible. We also like to spend the holidays at home with friends and family when possible. However, there comes a time when the things you want to do only happen over that period.
Like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
If we wanted to get to New York, we’d have to be traveling around Thanksgiving, there was no way around that fact.
I started looking around a year out and eventually found airfare with miles and a hotel room along the parade route with points.
I was so proud of myself that I forgot to plan some other essential parts of the trip which are usually afterthoughts any other time of the year.
