Thanksgiving is upon us and if you're anything like me, you've been thinking about the feast quite a bit.

Part of the fun of Thanksgiving is getting together with family and friends and cooking up a storm. Staples include green bean casserole, cranberry sauce and of course, turkey!

Some people like to make a whole day of cooking and getting ready for the big meal while others prefer to take the easy route and head out to a restaurant on the holiday instead.

Many restaurants are closed on Thanksgiving but luckily for us here in the Duluth and Superior area, some remain open for those that aren't quite up to cooking.

I tracked down 10 different restaurants across Duluth and Superior that are indeed open come Thursday. The cool thing is most of them are also offering a special Thanksgiving Day menu, complete with all the fixings you are likely craving right about now.

Happy feasting!
