Eat, Drink and Be Thankful on Cape Cod this Thankgiving

Cape Cod is serious about Thanksgiving. After all, the Pilgrims landed first in Provincetown before sailing about 30 miles south west to Plymouth across Cape Cod Bay. The four-day weekend is a perfect time to visit and take advantage of classic New England cooking, cozy fires in local taverns, and village centers that feel much more homey without big summer crowds.
