While the scene may not look like your standard colonial Thanksgiving, the dinner at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, Calif., is a popular destination for discerning diners. Built in 1888, this allegedly haunted beachfront hotel is a gorgeous option for a classic Thanksgiving buffet. You can choose either the seaside ballroom or the Crown Room for your dining experience; both feature live music. In addition to the traditional turkey and stuffing and all the trimmings, you'll have a nice selection of chilled seafood and salads. If you'd rather skip the turkey, you can also choose your entree from a variety of seafood, pastas, prime rib and a wide selection of desserts. Make your reservations early and bring your pocketbook -- the price tag is $85 per adult, and includes non-alcoholic beverages.
