Sure, Thanksgiving is generally thought of as the number one holiday for families. But did you know there’s a subculture who simply opt out? And every year, Vegas rolls out the red carpet for these people – we’ll call them the Turkey Day Rebels. Also, there’s no shame in ducking out of a stressful family situation every now and again and just enjoying the long weekend on your own terms. If you’re interested in a getaway without the fam, Sin City is serving up some fine deals this year.

Where to Eat in Las Vegas for Thanksgiving
The best part of Thanksgiving in Vegas is the variety of options available to you. Maybe you’re a traditionalist – if so, many restaurants offer set Thanksgiving menus. And as a bonus – you don’t have to do any of the cleanup! Or you can go 180 degrees in the opposite direction. Dine at an Indian or Thai or Chinese restaurant and subvert all expectations! If you do plan a Turkey dinner, we recommend reservations as the best restaurants will sell out!
Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace
Apple cider-brined roast turkey and herb-crusted smoked turkey breast, sweet potato casserole, plus vegetarian and vegan holiday offerings.
Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas
Three-course meal with British style onion soup, roasted heritage turkey breast with confit thigh meat and foie gras dressing and squash purée, and pumpkin pie with citrus sable.
Buddy V’s Ristorante at The Grand Canal Shoppes
Roasted butternut squash soup, slow-roasted turkey breast, with turkey sausage, pancetta-herb stuffing, sweet yams, cranberry relish and pumpkin bundt cake.
There’s no one-size-fits-all for Thanksgiving. Sometimes you might just want to go your own way. And if that’s your impulse this year, Vegas is back in business and ready to please!
