According to the travel experts at Country Living, Hermann, Missouri is the second-best town in the country to visit for Thanksgiving. Hermann is second to only Charlottesville, Virginia, and ranked ahead of New York City, Savannah (Georgia), and St Louis (which made the list too). So why is Hermann perfect for Thanksgiving? On the site, they say...

"The jewel of the Missouri Rhinelandwilkommens fall visitors with wineries, wurst houses, and dozens of other delightful ways to enjoy its German heritage. A self-guided walking tour of the historic downtown (or a bike ride along the 140-mile Katy Trail) is a lovely way to get your heart rate up before the big meal, and you’ll love cozying up in the sleeping quarters outfitted in antiques at the Inn at Hermannhof"

I love that this list is full of small-town options, obviously, we know that New York City, St. Louis, Chicago, and other big cities do massive parades and go all out for Thanksgiving. But if you are not looking to be surrounded by thousands and thousands of people during the holiday all of these small towns would be great options to check out. Personally, I would love to head up to the number 5 ranked place on this list for Thanksgiving, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, I have been there once before during the summer and it was beautiful, I can only imagine what it would look like with all the fall colors.
