These Are The Top Five Cities To

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and WalletHub has conducted its annual study of the top five cities to celebrate the holiday in.

The methodology they used to conduct the study was pretty simple: first, they narrowed the search down to America’s largest 100 cities. Then, they compiled 20 key metrics.

“Our data set ranges from the cost of Thanksgiving dinner and share of delayed flights to volunteer opportunities per capita and forecasted precipitation,” they wrote in their study. 

Let’s take a look at the cities which did make the list, though.

ATL earned high marks for its Thanksgiving traditions, safety, and beautiful weather. The combination of all these things put the Southern city at No. 1 on the list.

Atlanta, GA

Orlando isn’t just theme parks and Florida Man memes. With an overall experience score of 66.43, Orlando is one of the most affordable cities for Turkey Day.
