We had a phenomenal Thanksgiving 'Up North'...which, in SoFL terms means the panhandle. We met my mom halfway'ish between Fort Lauderdale and Huntsville, AL in Destin, FL for a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving weekend. We rented a home near the beach where the puppies could run around and play. It was great for us, too, because we were able to completely unwind, play some games, read a bit, and take long walks with the furbabies.
It was the BEST vacation we have had in quite a while!
