If you live in a Paran Home, you have a stunning kitchen and – depending on the floor plan – an inviting formal dining room. That in no way means you MUST cook on a regular basis (as inspiring as your new kitchen might be) or that you are required to host a horde of guests for your Thanksgiving celebration. Some families prefer to dine out during the holidays – saving themselves the added pressure of preparing the perfect Thanksgiving turkey or cleaning an endless array of pots, pans, utensils and dishes. If YOU are one of those people, you may want to pay close attention to this list of Thanksgiving celebration destinations near Paran Homes communities in Atlanta. If you don’t currently LIVE in a Paran Homes community, Thanksgiving might be the ideal time to take a drive after your Thanksgiving feast. Go exploring in hopes of finding the community AND home of your dreams in time for NEXT Thanksgiving.
