Thanksgiving Survival Guide

Whether you are visiting Athens over Thanksgiving weekend or playing host to friends and family, this Thanksgiving Survival Guide will let you know which Athens restaurants are open on Thanksgiving, where to order wonderful food for a Thanksgiving meal at home, and open spaces where you can gather together safely. 

Wondering how to share the holidays with friends and family, and do it safely? Rather than crowding everyone into one home, consider booking a local Athens hotel room or suite to provide more space for your visiting friends and family to spread out. Athens is typically blessed with fairly mild weather this time of year, meaning families and friends can still gather together at a local park for outdoor activities and a picnic meal. This is the year to get creative and start some new traditions! Look below for Athens hotels offering special rates for friends and family visiting for Thanksgiving.
