    For most of us, Thanksgiving is eagerly anticipated family time—an all-too-brief moment to gather 'round a cooked bird, some cranberry sauce, and a boatload of mashed potatoes. For others, home may be too far, that turkey may not be vegan enough, or the settlers of Plymouth Rock may seem more like villains than heroes. Whatever the case may be, we've got some easy escapes to make your extra two-and-half days off a little less annoying cousins and a little more om. With that in mind, we turned to Juliet Kinsman, editor-in-chief of expert travel service Mr & Mrs Smith, to outline eight Turkey Day itineraries—all five hours away or less—for those looking for a day of thanks that’s not so traditional, but still nothing short of special. Her options range from a Berkshires mansion fit for American royalty to a romantic Hamptons hideaway straight out of Revenge. Really, with options like these, who's to say the pilgrims wouldn't have ditched the cranberry sauce, too?

    Check out NYC's best Thanksgiving getaways (without the airport mess!).
