Do the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for Cheap!

November 4, 2008

macysparadelogoIs the sugar starting to wear off from Halloween? Are you starting to wonder what you’ll spend all your time doing once the election is over? What to read? What to watch? What to debate about?

Here’s somewhere to channel all that energy: New York City, for the coldest… er… coolest parade around.

Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away, and if you’re on the East Coast and not sure what to do for the holiday (home is too far, school dorms are closed, Cancun is too expensive) then consider hunkering down on a sidewalk for a night and have front-row seats to an American institution.

A Greyhound bus can get you to NYC from Boston, Philadelphia or Washington DC for as low as $12 with an online fare, and there are several hostels to choose from in Manhattan with rates as low as $15 a night. Take a look at Travel CUTS’ accommodation finder to see a full list of hostels and budget hotels.

The parade is free – no tickets required – and you can also see the balloons get blown up the night before. For details on where that takes place, plus information on where to sit, when to get to the parade route (as early as possible), and where to get some turkey afterward, visit macys.com.
