Enjoy Thanksgiving on Galveston beaches! Several favorite local restaurants offer special Thanksgiving menus, with dine-in and take-and-bake options to meet everyone’s needs this year.
Thanksgiving is full of family, friends and – of course! – food! While we all love the fruits of our kitchen labor – it can definitely get a little overwhelming! Thankfully (see what we did there?) there are a number of fabulous local food options for your Sand `N Sea Thanksgiving holiday on Galveston Island!
Who doesn’t love a Thanksgiving dinner full of turkey, gravy, sweet potatoes, green beans, rolls, cranberries (we will forever love the “fancy” cranberry sauce from childhood – complete with those snazzy ridges from the can!), etc.? And then, of course, there’s the pie. Pumpkin? Check. Blueberry? Check. Apple? Check. Seriously, it’s really just more fruit if you think about it ;). Add fresh Gulf Coast seafood to all of those classics and you’ve got the perfect Galveston Thanksgiving feast!
