Thanksgiving Events on the Emerald Coast
Thanksgiving is a great holiday to spend near the beach, especially on the Emerald Coast of Florida. On Thanksgiving Day, the weather is forecasted to be in the high low 70s with sunny skies and a crisp, cool breeze. This time of year is a great time to be outdoors with the family. Here are a few Thanksgiving week events you might want to attend while in town for the holiday: Thanksgiving Lunch and Dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House You can cook your special meal at home, or choose to dine out. If you dine out, make it a meal to remember at Ruth’s Chris Steak House!
