2 Last-Minute Options for an Ocean-Inspired Thanksgiving This Year


So, Thanksgiving is exactly one week away, and you’ve decided you’re done. Exhausted. You don’t feel like cooking, much less entertaining. What’s more, you’ve decided that what you really want is a last-minute getaway to someplace picturesque, a few meals eaten within viewing distance of a nice beach, maybe with a little sand between you toes. That’s not so much to ask, right?

You’re in luck.

Urgo Hotels & Resorts, a hospitality industry leader specializing in development, ownership, and management services, wants to help you celebrate Thanksgiving Day on November 27th with ocean-inspired feasts at two of its Florida locations: Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa and Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa.
