Thanksgiving 2020 - Lake Sunapee Region

The Lake Sunapee Region is well known as a beautiful summer and fall destination, but one of our favorites times of the year is late November, more specifically Thanksgiving time!! We know, all the leaves have fallen, the days are long and dark, and the temperature makes you bundle up. But…there is something so special about this time of year, from visiting local farm stands and grabbing ingredients for Thanksgiving dinner, to picking up homemade maple syrup and swinging by the local flower shop to decorate the table.

For those reading this post who already know, please add in your favorite things to do during November in the comment section below! For others who might be here for the first time in November, here are some of our favorite things to do and how we get ready for Turkey Day :)
