It’s 2020, the year that everyone wants to forget. Lockdowns, mask mandates, and the year of everyone working from home. As soon as Halloween came up, it seems that everyone has decided to look over thanksgiving and turn their heads toward Christmas and New Year’s so they can forget about 2020. We get where you are coming from, and we just want to remind you that Thanksgiving has feelings too. Here are a few reasons why you need to have a Vacation Destination Thanksgiving in Miramar Beach, Florida!
This was the year of working from home, so by now, I am sure you and your family could use a change of scenery, and what better scenery than to head on over to your favorite vacation spot, on the beach! Emerald Green waters and sugar sand beaches are sure to give you and your family something to be thankful for. Did we mention that the weather is usually in the high 60’s this time of year? Perfect weather to head to the beach or work on your golf swing!
Another great thing about having a vacation during thanksgiving is, you can cook at home, or you can eat out! Our units have the majority of your kitchen necessities to be able to have a thanksgiving feast that will make all other thanksgiving jealous! If you know you will be cooking your Thanksgiving meal, and want to see what kitchen items you will be needing, shoot us an email so we can let you plan ahead of time!
One thing we are surely grateful for on the Emerald Coast, grocery deliveries! What was once considered a luxury at the beach, is now a necessity! Nothing can be more frustrating than starting your vacation out at the crowded local grocery store, and now that you have store pick-up and grocery delivery, your vacations will never be the same! A few of the trendy grocery delivery places are instacart, walmart+, and publix grocery delivery.
And don’t forget our friends at the Beach Butler who were doing deliveries before it was cool, for your: Grocery deliveries, beach & baby rentals, and gulf wind Surf & paddleboard rentals!
