If the summer heat has been keeping you away from your next Scottsdale vacation getaway, you should consider visiting this Thanksgiving holiday. The fall season sees the temperatures drop significantly, allowing you to spend even more time outdoors. In addition, Scottsdale truly knows how to throw an incredible Thanksgiving holiday bash. Here is how you can plan to spend Thanksgiving in Scottsdale:

Eat Out!

Some families may wish to stick with tradition and prepare their own Thanksgiving feast from the comfort of their villa. Our fully equipped kitchens will allow you to do just that! If that is not your family, make sure to take a look at all the amazing restaurants that will still be open on Thanksgiving. These restaurants are open for brunch, lunch, and even dinner. The House Brasserie provides a fine dining experience for Thanksgiving dinner right in the center of Old Town. Enjoy a delicious meal including pumpkin bisque, filet mignon, and many more options from which to choose. Many other options are also open, so make sure to find your favorite cuisine to dine on for Thanksgiving!

Phoenix Turkey Trot

No Thanksgiving holiday is complete without a “turkey trot.” The Phoenix Turkey Trot will be taking place once again this Thanksgiving holiday in nearby downtown Phoenix. This year’s race includes a 5K Run & Walk, 10K Run, 1 Mile Gobbler Dash (where costumes are encouraged), and the Tot Trot. The Phoenix Turkey Trot is a perfect way to work up an appetite Thanksgiving morning before you dine on a delicious feast. Registration in advance is required and the races start at 7:30 AM on Thanksgiving.

Go for a Hike

As mentioned, the weather in Scottsdale around Thanksgiving is absolutely fantastic and needs to be enjoyed outdoors. Spend a few hours during your Thanksgiving holiday hiking up Camelback Mountain. The views from the top are magnificent, and the hike will help you burn off a few of those Thanksgiving meal calories! The weather will be great, letting you explore this local favorite peak anytime of the day.
