Looking for Thanksgiving Destination

Jump to last reply

My sister and I are looking for a destination to visit over the Thanksgiving holiday. I had wanted to kick off the holiday season by visiting the Christmas markets in Germany (I have been before) and Austria (Neither of us has been before) but airfare is running just about double for what I paid 3 years ago. We can get airfare for about $200 less to go Hawaii (Neither of us has been before). My sister had me check airfare to Istanbul (Neither of us has been before) and that is running half of what we would pay for Germany.

As you can see, I am very undecided and airfare prices aren't making it easy. Once I have a place in mind, I will see how much we want to spend on lodging. The weather isn't a factor as I know the places I have looked at are very different for this time of year. We are both in our mid to late 30's and love to sightsee and shop. I am not into museums or laying on a beach for long, as I get bored after a few hours of both. We also will be leaving from the EWR/PHL areas so does anyone have any suggestions?
