Thanksgiving Dinner

You came to Moab to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in style. There are several restaurants in and around Moab serving up delicious food throughout the year.

Work off some of that delicious dinner by getting some exercise. Set off on foot for a hike, or if traveling on two wheels rather than two feet is your favorite exercise, rent a bike and head out on the many trails near Moab. There is a myriad of paved and unpaved trails that lead to stunning views. Try unpaved trails like Bar M Loop – great for families, Intrepid Trail – another family-friendly ride but more difficult or ask the rental shop staff for tips on the best trails for your skill level.
