Anna Maria Island might not be the first vacation destination that comes to mind for a Thanksgiving getaway, but once you’ve experienced it, you might find yourself coming back year after year! While the rest of the country is starting to get pre-winter chill, it remains sunny and breezy down on the Gulf Coast, ideal weather for bicycling around the island, laying out on the beach, or fishing on Tampa Bay. Trade fall stews for freshly caught seafood from the Gulf, and crunchy leaves for sunset views over the ocean while you toast a glass of wine. From intimate Thanksgiving getaways with your loved ones to larger family gatherings, it’s always a fantastic time spending the holiday on Anna Maria Island. You won’t regret a visit to Anna Maria Island for Thanksgiving this year!

The Ultimate Thanksgiving Beach Vacation Destination

Anna Maria Island is more than just an island—it’s a way of life! When you come to visit for the holidays, you can expect rest and relaxation to be first on the agenda, whether it’s relaxing at one of our beautiful white-sand beaches or shopping the local stores on Pine Ave. The island is perfectly set up for experiencing outdoor recreation year-round, and with the breezy temperatures at the end of November, the island is your oyster. Take morning walks along the shore to hunt for seashells and take the same walk again in the evening to take in a spectacular show as the sun sets over the Gulf of Mexico. This isn’t your typical Thanksgiving getaway, but it’s certainly one you won’t ever forget!

Vacationing for a holiday like Thanksgiving can be difficult, especially if you’re used to cooking in your own kitchen! But don’t worry, because our Thanksgiving rentals have fully equipped kitchens, allowing you to do as much (or as little) cooking as you want to for the holiday. Order a pre-made Thanksgiving meal from a nearby grocery store like Publix or order a meal from one of our local restaurants on the island. You’ll find high-quality equipment to cook them up with, and an array of cookware should you decide to make your own Thanksgiving dinner in the beachy comfort of your vacation rental. Designed for an optimal home-away-from-home experience, our properties were made to make you feel like it’s your own home when you’re visiting for the holidays!
