Avoid the family drama this Thanksgiving! Celebrate the holiday weekend peacefully in the river town of Colonial Beach, Virginia (CBVA) in Westmoreland County, home to George Washington Birthplace National Monument. It was, after all, this founding father who issued the first proclamation declaring Thanksgiving a national holiday.

Arrive in CBVA Wednesday, the night before Thanksgiving (one of the biggest party nights of the year) and kick off the holiday at Hunan Diner, hosting a special Thanksgiving Eve Buffet (804) 224-8754. The Lighthouse Restaurant will host its regular Wednesday Karaoke.
