San Diego, CA


Spending November in sunny Southern California sounds like a dream! Celebrate Thanksgiving by the beach and work on your tan, go tide pooling, and watch the iridescent sunsets. Travel back in time by visiting Old Town, a settlement originally established in 1769 and still stands as a celebration of San Diego’s rich Mexican heritage. Of course, don’t forget to eat your fill of all of the delicious (and authentic) Mexican food that San Diego has to offer!

New York, NY


There’s no place like New York, especially this month! Of course, New York City is home to the famous televised Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for those hoping to get the full NYC in November experience. However, if you’d rather avoid parades altogether, there’s plenty to do in the city that never sleeps. Ditch the cold and catch a show on Broadway, or spend an afternoon at the Met.

Cayman Islands


Enjoy a tropical vacation in the Western Caribbean by soaking up the sun on the Cayman Islands. Made up of three islands, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman, travelers will find no shortage of beautiful sandy beaches and spectacular weather. Try out snorkeling in Stingray City or take a trip to the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park.

Denver, CO


You’ll fall in love with Denver’s fresh air and art scene this November. Escape the cold by spending a day at the Denver Art Museum, or embrace the chilly weather by visiting its expansive zoo, going on a hike, or skiing down some unforgettable slopes. Don’t forget to grab a bite to eat from some of Denver’s many world-class restaurants.

Portland, OR


Bookworms should consider spending November in Portland, OR and visit the famous bookstore, Powell's Books. While there, you can attend the Portland Book Festival and listen to panels by your favorite authors and buy some books to read during your vacation. If you ever tire of having your nose stuck in a book, Portland has a lot of restaurants and hiking trails to keep you entertained!

Crete, Greece


November is most definitely not a busy time for this Greecian island, with summer tourists long gone and many bars and restaurants closed. However, with the tourist hotspots closed, it’s a great opportunity for travelers to experience living like a local and discovering the real Crete. Try going olive picking (this is the perfect time to go, since locals will be harvesting at this time), venturing out on a hike, or taking a trip to the past by exploring ancient archeological sites like Knossos, which is close to Heraklion and the Minoan Palace at Malia.
