We’ve all heard the stories of the pilgrims in Plymouth, but New jersey has its own Thanksgiving Day legend. The story goes like this: In the 1640s newlyweds Penelope Prince and John Kent sailed from Europe to America but their ship sank near the end of the journey. The two made it to shore but John Kent was killed by Native Americans. Penelope Prince was taken in by a kind Lenape chief and eventually ended up in New Amsterdam (now known as Manhattan). She re-married to a man called Richard Stout and ended up having over 10 children and living to 110 years old.
It’s estimated that this Thanksgiving over 50 million Americans will take to the roads, so you can expect the roads to be busy. Thanksgiving is also the busiest time of year to travel by air. That means you need to take extra care of your travel plans.
At Royal Coachman, we specialize in airport transfers, private chauffeur services, and limo hire. That means, if you want to travel in style, luxury, and comfort this Thanksgiving, there is no better option than to let us take care of your travel.

You’ll be glad to hear that there are no storms predicted this Thanksgiving Week. The temperature will reside around the mid-30s throughout the morning and hopefully sneak into the 40s for the afternoon.
What to Do
Head To New York
With New Jersey being only a couple of hours away from New York, we’ve got to mention the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Watched by millions of Americans, it’s the biggest and most famous parade of its kind and well worth a visit.
Book yourself a room at one of the hotels along the route and we can drive you there in the utmost luxury.
Atlantic City at Thanksgiving
Of course, the other option to NYC is the shorter drive to Atlantic City. There are hundreds of restaurants to choose from, some of the best boardwalk attractions in the world and the switch-on of the festive lights to get you in the mood for the festive period.
Holiday Lighting Festival
If you are spending Thanksgiving Day in with the family, then you might want to get out the house on Friday. If that’s the case, there is no better place to go than the Holiday Lighting Festival. Head down to Red Bank and enjoy the festive spirit.
