Yes, spending time eating turkey, watching football, and putting up with your annoying cousins is great on Thanksgiving Day. But at some point you just HAVE to get out of the house!

Some things are great for the whole family, and some are perfect for adults looking for a mental break, but all will at least get you off the couch!
