Thanksgiving is just days away, but for New York City–based procrastinators, those who have been canceled upon, and non-celebrators alike, plans aren’t necessarily set. If that’s you, JetBlue has some flights that are pretty affordable, considering the late date. I’ve gone through the offerings, and these four options offer the best opportunity for a mini-wellness vacay (because, let’s face it, Thanksgiving can be both nerve-racking and gut-busting.)
Pack an efficiently organized carry-on with your warm– or cold-weather essentials (and a host gift, if needed), and don’t forget to take a moment to enjoy the hygge-appropriate design features of the airport.
See JetBlue’s 4 last-minute travel deals from NYC below.
1. Las Vegas, NV
The deal: From $139 one way
The activities: It may be full-blown hygge season on the East Coast, but it’s still super temperate in Vegas. If your ideal Thanksgiving escape has you catching some vitamin D, visit Sin City for hiking at Red Rock Canyon or laying in the Colorado River, and definitely swing by the totally lit Neon Museum.
2. Palm Springs, CA
The deal: from $139 one way
The activities: Book a stay at a geo dome or a dreamy cabin in Joshua Tree National Park, and spend your time unwinding at Integratron Sound Baths. End the day with some relaxation-inducing stargazing.
3. Houston, TX
The deal: from $119 one way
The activities: If you’re looking to spend the holidays giving back, consider helping out in Houston, which was recently devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Volunteer at a FEMA-recommended nonprofit like the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster or the Corporation for National & Community Service. And if you end up with some downtime, head to Rice University to see famous neon-light artist James Turrell’s “Twilight Epiphany” Skyspace.
4. Seattle, WA
The deal: from $124 one way
The activities: Seattle is basically an urban forest thanks to its climate and outdoorsy vibe. Try a hiking trail like Ira Spring or the Lake Serene, which includes some stellar waterfall views. And for a dose of mood-boosting art from the man who brought New York City its very own (and highly buzzed about) giant crystal, visit the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum.
