While the menu and meal attire have greatly changed since that first Thanksgiving feast in 1621, there is one Orlando Thanksgiving brunch buffet that truly celebrates community, culture and the autumn harvest.
Celebrate Thanksgiving in Orlando
Over 300 years ago, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared a special feast at autumn harvest time. Colonies and states celebrated special days of thanksgiving in years to follow, and then in 1863 President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed that every November a national Thanksgiving Day be held. Today it’s one of the major holidays in the United States and takes place annually on the fourth Thursday of November.
Situated in picturesque Howey-in-the-Hills, Mission Inn Resort & Club is a premier golf resort and home to two award winning golf courses. And for this upcoming weekend, it will be host to one of the best Thanksgiving brunches in the Orlando area.
