Great Places to #OptOutside this Thanksgiving Week

Last edited 9/29/2021

This week, when you feel the need to push yourself away from the table and take a break from Thanksgiving events, we encourage you to #OptOutside. Chances are, there’s a park, wildlife refuge or other public lands a short drive away. Above, we're highlighting public lands near urban centers like Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, New York City, Cleveland, Denver, BostonHoustonSeattle, Miami, Las Vegas, Chicago, Phoenix, San Francisco, the Twin Cities and Portland. So go ahead and enjoy some natural beauty, breath the fresh air and burn off some of those holiday calories. There will always be leftovers.
