Thanksgiving in Arizona

Labor Day is just a memory, and the last of the Halloween candy has been eaten. The holiday season is in full force, and Thanksgiving is next in the line-up! This year, however, you’re thinking of doing things a tad differently. Tired of the work, the stress, the unpredictable weather, and Uncle Mike screaming at the television set in his best attempts to change the outcome of the big game, you and your family have decided to take your blessings and thankfulness on the road (And aren’t you thankful there will be no mess to clean up at home this year?). If you are still on the fence as to where your Thanksgiving adventure should be held, may we suggest the luxury and comforts of a Book My Vacay vacation rental located in the heart of our favorite spot on Earth, the beautiful state of Arizona?

Beautiful Weather Guaranteed

Sunny skies and perfect temperatures make fall our favorite time of year, and Thanksgiving is when even our northernmost cities really shine! With highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s in the central part of the state, the temperature does cool down when you stay in Flagstaff—a cool mountain village with average highs of 50s and lows of 30s—but the sun shines brightly no matter where you stay in our state, and the warmth is always guaranteed!

Where to Eat During Your Arizona Thanksgiving Getaway

Let someone else do the cooking (and cleaning) when you visit these Phoenix area restaurants offering traditional Thanksgiving feasts. Eddie V’s at 15323 North Scottsdale Road is a Scottsdale favorite for the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner, while Frank & Alberts at 2400 East Missouri Avenue offers an elegant and tasteful prixe fixe menu for our guests who are staying in the Phoenix Area. In Flagstaff, Josephine’s Modern American Bistro at 503 North Humphrey’s Street is featuring a traditional Thanksgiving menu with a modern twist.

We Love a Parade!

And the town of Fountain Hills, located just a few miles away from your Phoenix metropolitan area vacation rental, holds the only Arizona Thanksgiving parade. It has all our favorite Thanksgiving Day parade elements: floats, marching bands, and of course, Santa Claus, but also features a Southwest spin that makes it unique!

It’s Not Too Late!
