If you’re sticking around for the holiday (which you should be this year), it helps to know what’s open on Thanksgiving day. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to spend the day solo or just need a little fresh air with your family, there are a surprising amount of options available to fill your day—even this year. In addition to the drive-thru Christmas lights that kick off around Thanksgiving, you’ll find socially-distant, outdoor activities at amusement parks and some L.A. attractions. The list below offers a variety of options—kid-friendly, daytime and night, near and far—to either help celebrate Thanksgiving or feel miles away from it all.
