Holidays can be busy—too busy, sometimes. Make your Thanksgiving holiday even better by allowing yourself a little rest and relaxation this year. Give yourself permission to take some time off.

Taking time off to recharge your batteries not only benefits you, but also your family. It helps to have the Gulf of Mexico at your doorstep waiting for you each and every day. Come sit, relax and stay awhile.
4. Add Gulf Coast Seafood to the Menu
There's nothing wrong with changing up your Thanksgiving menu to include some scrumptious Gulf Coast seafood. It brings an added level of deliciousness to your table. Fresh, locally caught seafood can be the centerpiece of your meal or just a nice addition to the classic holiday dishes. Either way, it's a crowd pleaser. Need some inspiration?
