Thanksgiving Weekend is ideal for Visiting Rocky Point, Mexico
Thanksgiving weekend is but a day away and most of you are looking forward to a 4-day weekend filled with food, family and fun. Many take this long weekend to meet up family and friends in Rocky Point, Mexico and have their own version of Thanksgiving – some deep fry their turkeys at their beach camp site, some opt for tamales with all the fixin’s, some take advantage of the numerous restaurants that serve up the traditional holiday feast, while others have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner at their vacation home or condo. After the turkey coma has worn off some take beach walks, or go for a ride on their ATV or in their Rhino, or go shopping, or head to their favorite spot for a sunset margarita.
Whether you are starting a new Thanksgiving tradition or want to add some fun to your existing one, there is no better place to celebrate a day of thanks than here in Rocky Point. The weather is always great. Everyone is always so happy. All of the shops are open and beach vendors are out in droves. And there are always a few events going on throughout the weekend. To put a little “thanks” in your Thanksgiving weekend, you can bring some toys, blankets, jackets, socks, sweat clothes, etc. and donate them to a charity or go out on your own and find a family or two who would benefit from your generosity.
I can think of nothing better than going for a leisurely stroll down the beach as the sun is setting. Well, one thing that might be better is a leftover turkey, stuffing and cranberry sandwich, my beach bag and iPod and an entire beautiful day to beachcomb. Leftover lunch on the beach…I can hardly wait!
In past years there were no turkeys to be found in Rocky Point so we had to bring them in from the U.S. With the restrictions on food at the border this would be a problem this year, but luckily Rocky Point now has a Sam’s Club that sells turkeys so you can buy them locally and not worry about border restrictions. It has been stated that they are allowing you to bring in one turkey, but I think I would rather buy local and not worry about it. All of the other items you usually need for a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner will be no problem getting the green light at the border – items like canned green beans, mushroom soup, French fried onions, Cool Whip, marshmallows, etc. Any fresh fruits or vegetables you need you can find here in Rocky Point and they will be much cheaper.
So grab what you need for your Thanksgiving Dinner, invite friends and family and head down to Rocky Point for a fantastic four day weekend. The weather should be in the 70s and night time outings should only require a light jacket. You can still enjoy all water activities and if you need a wetsuit you can rent one at Sun n Fun Dive Shop on Blvd. Benito Juarez in the old JimBur Plaza (big Telcel office is in the plaza and it’s across from Circle K just a few hundred feet south of the railroad tracks on your left as you head toward Old Port.
Here at Laguna Shores Resort I am looking forward to a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with a little splash of the different from my Canadian boyfriend, Wayne. He cooks the turkey and mashed potatoes and I’m in charge of the candied yams, green bean casserole, and a sinful dessert. We will share the day with some special friends – and our two Great Danes – and be thankful we get to live in such an awesome place…and that we don’t have to head home on Sunday. Living here at Laguna Shores Resort year-round gives me many, many things to be thankful for. I invite you to come out and see for yourself why Laguna Shores Resort is a cut above the rest and why it’s the only development of its kind here in Rocky Point, Mexico.
