3 Activities That Will Complete Your La Jolla Thanksgiving 

Oceanside Turkey Trot

The Oceanside Turkey Trot is usually held at the Oceanside Civic Center, although the event will be virtual for the 2020 holiday. This event is a perfect opportunity to get outside, enjoy the beauty of San Diego, and, most importantly, put in a little work before chowing down on everyone’s favorite feast of the year.

Thankfully, San Diego has plenty of delicious restaurants that serve up mouthwatering seasonal dishes from a special Thanksgiving menu. A few of our favorites are The Marine Room, George’s at the Cove, and Eddie V’s. At each one, you’ll find a unique holiday experience and cuisine so delicious that you’ll savor every last bite.
