Between spending time with our loved ones to the delicious meals to come today, the fourth Thursday in November is one of our favorite days here at northforker.

Thanksgiving has the elements of the perfect holiday: a lazy morning tuned into the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, a nature walk to offset the impending food coma, a foodie feast celebrating the bounty and expressing gratitude for all things big and small.

This Thanksgiving, we present to you our guide to eating, drinking, living and breathing on the North Fork this time of year. We hope you take a moment to reflect today before the holidays get into full swing.

Happy Thanksgiving!
