Thanksgiving Holiday Destinations For Desert Travelers
By L. Bremner

November marks the national holiday of Thanksgiving.  It is a time when we get together with friends and family to be thankful for what we have.  It is also a great holiday for outdoor activities in the desert region.  The weather is cooler and with the Thanksgiving holiday coming up, we will have some time off to explore the desert.

One of the biggest vacation spots for the holiday weekend in the desert is Glamis a.k.a. Imperial Sand Dunes in CA.  OHV (off-highway vehicle) enthusiasts from all over the country, gather for a weekend of fun with their OHV toys.

For those desert adventurers, who are not into OHV activities, there are many other destinations and things to do over the holiday weekend.  Camping, auto-tours, sight seeing, rock hounding or staying in a nice spa are all options for an enjoyable weekend.

Here are a few links to holiday trips, destinations, animals and recipes that are all seasonable in November.

Lynn Bremner is the author of DesertRoadTrippin.com, a blog about desert road trips and tips. She started the blog after moving to Indio, CA where she now resides. Now a true desert dweller, Lynn has added in some of her own views on desert living. The heat does not keep her indoors in the summertime. She is out running, golfing or taking short day trips to some of the local points of interest. After years of traveling along the dusty, desert trails with her father, she has come to appreciate the beauty and solitude of the desert landscape. Her father’s passion for prospecting, desert lore and exploring the desert parks took their family to many interesting places, mostly in California, Nevada and Arizona. Lynn now writes about her desert road trips and intertwines a little bit of desert living into the mix.
