4. Detroit, Michigan
Let’s see what Detroit is so special and why this city would be one of the best places to celebrate Thanksgiving. First of all, this is where Thanksgiving Parade takes place. This tradition began in 1924. To see the event, people book tickets and fly to see the festival from all around the country. The organizers demonstrate their superb collection of huge papier-mache heads. You will start parading from Woodward Avenue and proceed through the city center. You are welcome to take part in one of the numerous competitions. You can always find something exciting to do there and the variety of activities is truly wonderful.
