1. Hornblower Thanksgiving Dinner Cruise – Family-Friendly!

NYC Thanksgiving Dinner Cruise Family Friendly

Cruise around New York Harbor on an elegant yacht while you enjoy this family-friendly Thanksgiving Day Dinner Cruise by Hornblower Cruises. Feast on a sumptuous Thanksgiving buffet made with the freshest seasonal ingredients as the resident Hornblower DJ entertains you during dinner 5-8 pm (3 hours).

After you’ve had your fill of turkey and desserts, take in all the sights with your camera as you cruise past the Statue of Liberty and capture other wonderful images of the New York City skyline and landmarks you can only get from the water. After you’re stuffed, and have all the best photos, unwind by watching football on flat screen TVs on the ship.

3. Thanksgiving Dinner in New York City

Thanksgiving Dinner in Little Italy NYC

Many restaurants serve Thanksgiving Dinner in New York City, and most of them will serve pre-fix dinners.

Remember, these are days when restaurants know mostly NYC Visitors, and not their repeat customers, are dining. They know they have a captive audience and price accordingly. If your Thanksgiving Dinner at home is truly special and wonderful, then don’t try and replace it. Do something different – and something very NYC!

Eat in Little Italy or Chinatown, for example. Go to Greenwich Village, SoHo, West Village or Union Square. After all, this is where NYers live, so if they are eating out, these restaurants are catering to their local regulars. Get away from the crowds and the other tourists and have a slice of NYC all to yourself.
