We all have our own family traditions when it comes to holidays such as Thanksgiving. Many families will often say spending time together is the most important aspect of any holiday especially Thanksgiving. Others wish to do something different by going off the beaten path for a unique trip. If that sounds like you it may be time to book a journey to Moab for this fall holiday. Moab is an incredible destination perfect for all outdoor lovers out there. The thrilling activities around the area will keep you busy all stay long. Moab Thanksgiving activities can be done a little differently. Take a look at how your Moab vacation getaway can look like in Moab this year:

Cook a Thanksgiving Meal

When it comes to finding the perfect Thanksgiving meal many families tend to stick with cooking up their own personal feast. You will be in luck as our vacation rentals come with everything you need to make your Thanksgiving meal just as perfect as it would be back home. 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. This southwestern restaurant features an intimate setting perfect for a romantic Thanksgiving date. The wine cellar has more than its fair share of wine to choose from to pair with your meal. For a casual meal, Zax Restaurant will have you covered. This American eatery features an all you can eat menu that includes pizza, salad, and soup. The full-service bar lets you order the right cocktail to pair with your meal. The Thanksgiving menu includes your standard fare such as turkey and much more. Sunset Grill offers a traditional steakhouse experience in its fine dining setting. You can enjoy the panoramic mountaintop views from the top as you dine on prime cuts of steak or fresh seafood. Moab Brewery lets you stop by on Thanksgiving Day for their standard menu and craft beer. There is a beer on tap for everyone including lagers, IPAs, and much more. You will find there is no shortage of food options for Thanksgiving right here in Moab.

Fall Activities

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. There are plenty of hiking and biking trails surrounding the city for more experienced riders too.

Book Your Stay for Moab

As you can see there are plenty of ways for you and your family to get out and enjoy everything there is in Moab this Thanksgiving holiday. Reserve one of our vacation rentals today to have the best Thanksgiving experience in town.

This is a great rental. It was well stocked, clean and in great condition. The layout is great. We were a family of 4 so everyone got their own room and bathrooms had dual vanities. There is another bathroom with shower downstairs that we did not use. This could comfortably accommodate 3 couples; 4 if wouldn't mind using the bunk bed room. The kitchen was well stocked. We only cooked one evening but kitchen had everything we needed including common spices and some olive oil. Condo had shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, hand soap, dish soap and Keurig coffee pods. Condo is close to main part of town so we could have easily walked but Moab wasn't busy during our visit so we were able to easily find parking and drove most places. Cruiser bikes looked to be in good condition but we did not use them. The pool is closed for the winter but the hot tub worked and was well maintained. Garage at the condo was tall enough to accommodate our SUV with topper box and garage opener is included. Property management was by "Empty Spaces Vacation Rental Management." They were very professional and communication was excellent. That part of the experience exceeded a typical "host" for a VRBO. I wish they managed more properties in other locations (they manage some in Crested Butte, Havasu and Grand Mesa). I would absolutely stay at this condo again.

This property is located within waking distance to Main street downtown and is just a short drive to all things fun outdoors. It is very clean and has great amenities. Our kids loved the little play area! They felt they had their own special space away from us parents. This property really has all you need for a great vacation!

We were a group of two families with 4 adults and 3 children (11, 11 and 13). The house is well decorated, very clean and provided comfortable furniture for both relaxing and sleeping. There is also ample parking for up to 4 vehicles (2 car garage + 2 driveway spots). We had two cars, a RZR and trailer all of which we were able to fit at the property. The back patio overlooks a park with several trees which in my opinion is one of the best patio views in the development. Communication with the rental management agency was very clear and made that part of the experience effortless. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this property.

We’ve stayed in hotels and condos in Moab and this was our best location yet. The condo is great with enough room for friends and family to all be together and enjoy each other’s company, but with rooms and bathrooms that allow for some downtime. We chose this unit because it was right next to the pool and we had kids with us. Best choice ever. We could be cooking on the grill while the kids (older kids) could swim. The kitchen was very well stocked and there were loads of towels and even games to play. We would come back to this property again for sure.

Awesome stay for our annual family trip! At first glance, it looked small (like the yard and pool etc) but once we got going we found it to be more than enough for our family and we had quite the clan. The pool is great for families with kids because there is a large step/pad on one side where my two year old could walk around and still be in the pool with everyone else. The yard has a fun playground for toddlers, and a nice lounge area where we played games. The house was super clean and comfortable, and great for the family to hang out. Parking galore. Plenty of things we needed like towels and blankets, etc. Great hosts! The location is good too, not far from stores or attractions like the London bridge. Would absolutely stay again if we come back to Havasu!
