What's Open and Closed on Thanksgiving in Broward-Palm Beach

Tomorrow is the Thanksgiving. Which means, unless you're traveling, you're home, chillin, watching the parade, some football, and eating until your pants splode.

Of course, you'll inevitably have that moment where you remember that you forgot to buy enough deserts, or learn that your Uncle is bringing his mistress for dinner this year, and now you need more stuffing.

Whatever the case may be, here is a list of things that will be open and things that will be closed in Broward and Palm Beach on Thursday:


Broward: Broward County Transit will operate their regular HOLIDAY schedules, which is usually until 8:30 p.m. The same goes for Tri-Rail.

Palm Beach: There will be no Palm Tran bus service Thanksgiving Day.


Malls will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.
