We all deserve a little vacation getaway to break away from the normal routine of life and experience something thrilling. Change up your holiday plans this year by booking a vacation getaway to the beautiful shores of Cape Coral. Here you will find exciting holiday events that are perfect for all ages, along with fall related activities. But of course, since this is Cape Coral, the sun is always shining, and the beach is never too far away. Take a look at what you can expect from Thanksgiving in Cape Coral this year:
Mid Cape 5K Gobble Wobble
When it comes to a staple Thanksgiving tradition, you will always find a “Turkey Trot” waiting for you, no matter your travel destination. Turkey Trots are races, typically 5K or 10K in length, held on Thanksgiving morning. The race usually benefits a local charity or non-profit and encourages participants to dress up in their best turkey attire. Cape Coral has its very own Turkey Trot that goes by the name of Mid Cape 5K Gobble Wobble. This local 5K can be enjoyed by running or walking, making it a great choice for all individuals. The event will provide coffee and pastries the morning of the event and will collect canned food items for local food banks. If you are a competitive soul, the Mid Cape 5K Gobble Wobble will have an award ceremony for top three place finishers for male and female racers in a variety of age categories; each age category is divided into 5-year increments, ensuring a fair competition for everyone involved. Registration before the event is highly encouraged to save on your entrance fees and reserve an event t-shirt exclusive to the Gobble Wobble. The race starts at 7:30 AM sharp with participants encouraged to arrive by 7:00 AM to pick up their materials. Come run this race before you stuff your face later in the day!
Thanksgiving Sunset Dolphin Cruise
When you visit Cape Coral, you will be able to take a dolphin watch cruise out onto the bay to see these loveable creatures in person. If you want to experience these incredible cruises on Thanksgiving Day, simply head over to Adventures in Paradise nearby in Sanibel. This incredible charter company is offering Thanksgiving Day dolphin sunset cruises so you can hit the high seas as the sun sets slowly in the background. They will take you to nearby areas where dolphins spend their time in the water as you enjoy a relaxing cruise on the water. The captain and first mate will provide a knowledgeable narration as you explore the sea and maybe even see a manatee or two. Complimentary soft drinks and bottled water are provided in this experience. Make sure to book quick as this activity is sure to sell out quick! Tours are offered every day in case you are not able to make the Thanksgiving Day cruise.
When it comes to Thanksgiving traditions, there is nothing more special than making your feast with loved ones. However, when you travel for Thanksgiving, you may want to spend less time in the kitchen and more time exploring the new city around you. Luckily, Cape Coral has plenty of restaurants that remain open on Thanksgiving so you can enjoy a meal with your family. 4 Sestras Bistro to Go is a casual counter service bistro that specializes in sandwiches, salads, and soups. This is a great way to grab a meal to go to enjoy back at your vacation rental. Their Thanksgiving menu is special and offers unique entrees not typically found on their menu. For a chic meal with updated American fare head over to Point 57 Kitchen & Cocktails. They are typically known for their electric Sunday brunches and tasty cocktails. The Thanksgiving menu is also special here at Point 57 with something for everyone on it. If you are planning on taking the family out for a fine dining experience head over to Rumrunners. This upscale steak and seafood restaurant offers a full-service bar and patio seating with direct views of the water.
