3 Activities That Will Complete Your La Jolla Thanksgiving 

Oceanside Turkey Trot 

Thousands of runners complete in turkey trots across the country on Thanksgiving Day, so it’s no surprise that San Diego has one of its own. 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.   

Enjoy a Fine Dining Thanksgiving Feast 

It isn’t everyone’s cup of tea to spend the day slaving over a hot stove on Thanksgiving. It should be spent enjoying the company of loved ones! 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.   

Take a Beach Walk at Sunset 

There’s no better way to end a holiday than with a famous San Diego sunset walk on the beach. Spend time with family and friends as you all take in the beautiful scenery and recover from that turkey hangover! We recommend heading to La Jolla Shores or Windansea for the best walking areas and views.
