Trying to decide on a location for a mini family vacation over Thanksgiving weekend, with me, my dad, and his girlfriend. Seeking suggestions for where to go and what to do there.

I'd like it to be somewhere the three of us can all enjoy as a group, preferably not insanely expensive (I know, it's already very late to be asking this question!). I live in NYC, they live in Chicago, the former is an option (I could play tourist). I'm in my mid-twenties. I like the idea of using Air BnB if possible.
We've been considering New Orleans and Nashville. Austin, the Florida Keys, Albuquerque, and Seattle also came to mind. Of these I've only been to Seattle. We've all been to San Francisco a lot, and love it, but I'd like to try something new. LA would be fun but is far away. They were unenthusiastic about the idea of Portland (also far).
I would be happy with somewhere nature focused, but they are more city people. We all like art museums, cool/funky stores, books, good food, historic sites, cool parks, interesting architecture. Warm weather might be a plus but not necessary.
I've gotten overwhelmed by the options (this trip would be a birthday gift), so I could use any sage advice in helping to determine what place makes the most sense. Thanks in advance!
