Terranea Resort outside Los Angeles is one of the resorts arranging special Thanksgiving events.

Thanksgiving is often a traditional holiday spent at home, together with the family. But for those looking for new Thanksgiving traditions, Destination Hotels & Resorts is offering several Thanksgiving packages at their resorts around the country.

Terranea Resort outside Los Angeles is arranging a Thanksgiving Feast on Nov. 28, where guests can enjoy a buffet-style dinner of traditional Thanksgiving menu items, for the price of $90 per adult and $45 for children ages 5 to 10.

The luxury resort Eden Roc at Miami Beach, Fla., offers a special "spa to bar" hotel package for the holiday season, available until Dec. 1, 2013. The package includes a "Hot Roc" massage — a combination of hot stone and Swedish massage — at the resort’s Elle spa, followed by a complimentary Hot Toddy cocktail.

In Charleston, S.C., Wild Dunes Resort offers guests a "luxury experience with [a] Southern hospitality twist" for Thanksgiving, according to a press release. From Nov. 26 to 29, a Thanksgiving Festival will be held at the resort, with events such as oyster-shucking, live music, and live viewing of the holiday classic A Charlie Brown Christmas. At the resort's spa, a "Pumpkin Enzyme Peel & Latte" offer includes a facial of pumpkin pulp purées, paired with a pumpkin latte for a feeling of fall.
