Looking to make plans outside of the house for Thanksgiving? We've rounded up a list of Lehigh Valley locations that will be open on turkey day.

Some people call it a tradition to go out on Thanksgiving, whether for the dinner itself at a restaurant or for shopping. Some people enjoy their tradition of staying in with family and not leaving the house. We're not here to judge, we just want to give you some options should you choose to go out on Thanksgiving day, whether it's because you burnt your turkey or because you don't want to attempt to cook. Maybe you just need some time out of the house. No matter what, Lehigh Valley is full of options.
