These gourmet kitchens come with full size appliances that are often recent additions. You can easily prepare multiple dishes at a single time along with finding plenty of room for storage in the fridge. Spacious countertops let everyone have a hand in helping prepare the feast. All of the exciting features do not end in the kitchen; make sure to take your meal to the dining room tables that will have enough room for the allowed number of guests in each home. Kitchen bars also provide additional seating just in case any guests come over too. Each property will have the essential cooking ware and utensils, so you do not need to bring anything from home or purchase anything during your stay outside of the ingredients themselves.
Local Dining for Thanksgiving
Not everyone wants to spend their Thanksgiving in the kitchen and would rather go out and explore the area. You can enjoy a Thanksgiving feast with a local restaurant found in the area. Moab features several different locally owned restaurants that will make your Thanksgiving meal a great one. Enjoy an upscale meal at local favorite Desert Bistro.

You will not find any Thanksgiving themed events during your stay in Moab, but that doesn’t mean the fun stops there. The fall season is a great time to see Moab for the first or tenth time. Many consider Moab to be an outdoor playground, as the area features many different activities. The fall season also brings in cooler temperatures making it even easier to spend hours outdoors at any time. No trip to Moab should skip out on a visit to the local national parks including Arches National Park. This park is known for its historic stone arches that stand tall in the horizon. Our downtown Moab vacation rentals are just a few minutes away from the park where you can explore to find its over 2,000 different arches. Another great option is visiting Canyonlands National Park that encompasses over 337,000 acres of beautiful canyons and mesas. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy some outdoor fun including four wheeling, hiking, scenic drives, and much more. Mountain biking is a fun activity all year long, but the fall season makes it even more accessible. Beginners can go easy their first time by riding on the Bar-M Loop.
