In comparison to other holidays throughout the year, Thanksgiving is the holiday that tends to bring family and friends together the most; but that is an argument for another day. In Connecticut, however, time spent with family and friends doesn’t have to be indoors, there is a myriad of activities scheduled, not just for the actual Thanksgiving day (22nd November), but for the duration of that week. As such, our Connecticut airport shuttle specialists have taken the initiative to compile some of the best events scheduled for this year’s holiday period in an effort to make your Thanksgiving more memorable.
However, before we proceed to the actual events, consider employing the services of our Connecticut limo service for all your transpiration needs this Thanksgiving week; treat your family and friends to a luxurious ride and spice up their entire experience. Further, Thanksgiving is a time for enjoying the company of your loved ones, creating memories, and taking the time to simply appreciate everything you have to be grateful for. Therefore, let us handle all the driving and navigation on your behalf as you devote all your time and attention to the people you care about and share in the excitement and anticipation of arriving at any one of these exciting events.
