Things To Do This Thanksgiving in Arizona 2013

Are you looking for some new Thanksgiving traditions or things to do around town?

Roast Turkey and Stuffing

Here’s a list of some of the things I’ve found that might be fun to do.  Have something to add, please let me know by commenting below.

  1. There are many opportunities to help out around town with those less fortunate on the holiday.  You can find more information on helping at places like the Salvation Army and St. Mary’s Food Bank here:
  2. Do you have kids?  The Sea Life Aquarium is open all day and they have discounted rates. You can also find the Phoenix Zoo and Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium Open.
  3. Laugh off some of those calories at a comedy show on Thanksgiving Day at 6pm.  You can find all the details here:
  4. Or you could end the night off with a run by doing the Anthem Turkey Trot on Nov. 28th with the whole family.
  5. There are always the local movie theaters and bowling alleys to check out, if you’re looking for something active and fun to do before or after your big meal. 
  6. bowlingThe CityScape is a great place to be on Nov. 30. The festive holiday season kicks off with a holiday tree lighting event and opening of the Ice Rink. This year’s ice skating rink has doubled in size and is made of real ice. Opening day features a visit from Santa Claus and much more. Hot chocolate, coffee and holiday treats are also available. More information here:

Want to skip the cooking this year?  Check out the Westin Kierland for a delicious meal and none of the stress. The festive


Thanksgiving buffet also will feature a roasted Sonoran spice-rubbed turkey, slow-roasted prime rib of beef, blue cornmeal-crusted “Skuna Bay” salmon and an Arizona Stir Fry featuring fresh seasonal produce. Sausage fennel stuffing, roasted vegetable cornbread stuffing, fresh cranberry relish, whipped Yukon gold potatoes, sweet potato soufflé and local squash from “Sleeping Frog Farms” with lemon-infused “Queen Creek” olive oil are just a few of the trimmings.

The Fairmont Princess is also a good choice. Families may enjoy the tradition of togetherness and a bountiful Thanksgiving in luxury at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, where award-winning chefs and an expert staff attend to every detail of a memorable meal or a relaxing fall getaway. Four dynamic restaurants and five talented chefs come together to present a Thanksgiving feast. Chefs from BOURBON STEAK, La Hacienda, The Grill at the TPC  and Ironwood American Kitchen  will each bring their own special culinary talents and themed menus to the table.

Whatever you choose, I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving and a more than enjoyable meal!
