Every family has their Thanksgiving traditions. For many, Thanksgiving is a time to feast, spend time in nature, to give thanks, to relax, or go apple picking. Thanksgiving is also very much about spending time with your family.
Consider visiting Toronto with your family this fall season. Thanksgiving weekend is often the last chance for a quick getaway before the long stretch to the winter holidays. Toronto comes alive during this fall holiday with many Thanksgiving-themed activities!
