If you’re having family over for Thanksgiving here’s a tip:
Prepare dinner the day before, leave the key under the doormat, leave instructions on how to reheat the dinner and get out of town.
There are still some fantastic deals all around Texas whether you leave on Thanksgiving Day or on Black Friday. Even though there will be tens of millions of people on the road, hotel rates are LOW.
Here are some examples:
- Houston hotels near the Galleria are as low as $52.00
- San Antonio hotels near the Riverwalk are as low as $92.00
- Austin hotels near 6th St are as low as $65.00
- Dallas hotels near Downtown are as low as $55.00
- Galveston hotels are as low as $95.00
These rates come from the Intercontinental Hotels Group site which includes Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza and many others. (www.ichotelsgroup.com)
You will be able to find even lower prices by going to your favorite hotels chain website and check there rates. Now here is another tip. After you find the best rate on the chains reservations website, call the hotel and ask if they have a better rate. If you are a Senior, ask for their Senior Rate. If you are a member of AAA, ask for the AAA Rate.
If you travel, please be safe.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving no matter what you do.

Ps. I’m stuffing my turkey with Chicken Fried Steak, so it will be a real Texas Turkey for the Texas Travellin’ Man.
