Option 2: Spend it on a boat:
Long Beach's Hotel Queen Mary may be on a voyage to nowhere, so let the journey to it (and $85/night accommodations via Travelzoo) be your longest trip. Hit the Thanksgiving buffetyou'll need to fuel up for camping overnight on the curb to get a good spot for Sunday's Hollywood Christmas Parade (or pay $35 for grandstand seats).
Option 3: Spend it on the links (or in the spa):
Don't just stay home playing Tiger Woods PGA Tour this year. Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina bundles your $155/night rate with symphony tickets and a deluxe dinner. If you don't want to spoil a good walk, pick the spa package instead of the golf one.
