Thanksgiving is one of the busiest times of the year. From family gatherings and travel to food, festivities and Black Friday Florida resort deals, more time is spent on preparing for Thanksgiving than most holidays. This year, try something different - spend a relaxing vacation with Westgate Resorts and leave all your stress behind!

Here are 4 reasons to take a Thanksgiving Vacation:

No Cooking: Take a break from cooking and be served instead. Enjoy a special Thanksgiving dinner at Westgate's award-winning eateries such as Drafts Sports Bar & Grill, Edge Steakhouse or the Smokehouse Grill. All offer an eclectic menu with mouthwatering dishes and delectable desserts.

No Clean up Needed: In the aftermath of hosting Thanksgiving dinner at home, hours may be spent returning your house to its pristine condition. On vacation, the hospitality staff will do the cleanup for you so your focus can be on having a good time.

More Entertainment Options: One great benefit of vacations is never running out of things to do. Westgate Resorts properties are located in exciting cities such as Las Vegas, Orlando, Miami, Gatlinburg, Branson, Williamsburg, Myrtle Beach, Daytona Beach and Park City – all offering top notch entertainment. Whether you choose to explore world-famous theme parks in Orlando, hike through the Great Smoky Mountains, tee off at championship golf courses in Myrtle Beach or Mesa, stroll through historic sites such as Colonial Williamsburg, try your luck at Las Vegas casinos, take in a Broadway-style show in Branson or simply relax on white-sand beaches in Miami, Westgate offers something for everyone. Complimentary shuttles to and from popular attractions, are available at select resorts. Ask at the Front Desk for availability.

Shorter Lines: While other families stay home for Thanksgiving, your savvy vacation strategy will reap big benefits! Imagine shorter lines with less wait time at popular attractions. Since the days between Thanksgiving and December 16 are some of the slowest times at Walt Disney World Resort and other theme parks, there may be a much shorter wait for popular rides at Disney’s theme parks or Universal Orlando (especially if you arrive first thing in the morning and avoid the rush).

Celebrate your best Thanksgiving vacation at Westgate Resorts this year and make memories that will last a lifetime. Have a great trip!
