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.

It's hard to match the beauty of Moab. If you're looking for a 5-star stay in a 5-star town do not hesitate to book. This place has it all... cleanliness, comfort (seriously comfortable beds), all the amenities, and amazing hosts! Would not hesitate to stay here again and hope to have the opportunity in the future.

The extras like the corn hole, all the kitchen supplies and the bikes made this an even better place to stay. It’s well worth it. So convenient to Arches Nat’l Park and Corona Arch. Will come back for sure.

Great stay! It was super clean, spacious and very nice. There was one small issue with the shower and they were quick to resolve it. I’m very pleased with their communication and efficiency. Highly recommend staying here when in Moab!

Our 4 families met in Moab from Oregon, Colorado and Nebraska. The place has everything you need and more for a large group: plenty of plates, silverware and condiments, coffee machine(s), games, bikes with helmets, washer/dryer, grill, etc. We used them all I think! :) The place is new and was very clean and spacious. Check-in was easy, hosts responsive, and we couldn't think of anything we would change.

Six old college buddies stayed at this home for a week in October 2021 and and absolutely loved the place. It is masterfully appointed, wonderfully stocked with good quality appliances, we especially liked the Keurig coffee maker, and the home worked out perfectly for our group. Location is great, close to town, close to Arches and the Parks. I've stayed in the same area before but this home was much nicer and better appointed than my previous rental location. We found it to be perfect for our needs.

Property was clean and well stocked - We go to Moab to "get out" - so we were at the unit to sleep, and swim with the kids in the evenings - Great experience all around, and plenty of attention to smaller details. It's more than just a shell of a unit to sleep in. The beds were comfy, dish soap, bath soap, towels, dishes, etc - which makes all the difference with a family - Appreciated the experience all around

This house was unbelievably amazing! It was a beautiful home, set up so perfect for family, kids, or just a great friends weekend! We will definitely be renting this home again in the future. Our trip didn’t go as we planned but it was still a very relaxing stay because of the house. Sarah, Scott, Julie and Jeff with the rental company we’re very welcoming and very communicative with making sure we were happy and comfortable. Thanks for everything.

Very clean, modern amenities, nicely decorated. Kitchen was impressively stocked with everything a cook would need. Lots of kitchen appliances. Stocked laundry room as well. Pool and hot tub was very close. Free bikes and bike locks to use was a great perk. Very spacious townhome.
