If you're looking to trade the chilly fall weather for a warm, sandy beach, a Thanksgiving getaway package to a warmer place might be a good option. At the Grand Lucayan Resort in the Bahamas, located just 55 miles off the Florida coast, a "Bahamian-inspired" Thanksgiving will be celebrated at the international buffet-style restaurant Willy Broadleaf.
To celebrate the holiday season, the Grand Lucayan Resort is also offering a special fall sale available from Nov. 15 to Dec. 25. With rates starting at $99 per night (with a two-night minimum), the fall sale package includes a free round of golf at the resort's golf field.
The Thanksgiving Day feast at the Willy Broadleaf restaurant will include Bahamian-flavored cuisine such as spicy crabmeat salad with Titi shrimp and stir-fried conch, as well as more traditional Thanksgiving dishes, including roast turkey with giblet au jus, a roast beef carving station, and sweet potato, thyme, and raisin stuffing. For those able to save room for dessert, a dessert station will feature a range of sweet selections including white chocolate pumpkin cheesecake, mini caramel nut cheesecake, and pineapple slices with ginger syrup. The gourmet buffet is priced at $34 for adults and $12 for children ages 5 to 12, and served from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
