3 Reasons to Book It to Amana Thanksgiving Weekend

Reserve your seats for Thanksgiving dinner at Hotel Millwright in Amana. It’s $32 a person and includes all the favorites—roast turkey, sage stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes and much more.

With Thanksgiving and the subsequent holiday shopping season coming up, it’s a perfect time to spend a day or weekend in Amana. Here are three tempting events.

Thanksgiving at Hotel Millwright: Leave the cooking and the cleanup to the Indigo Room at Hotel Millwright. For $32 per person (and $16 for a kid’s plate), you can enjoy a traditional feast with all the fixings—including pie and signature cocktails. Four seating times are available.

Macarons and Wine Pairing Flights: For $12 Nov. 25-27, you can sample sweets from French Pastry by Sandrine of Cedar Rapids with fruity varietals by Ackerman Winery at their location in main Amana. The winery also hosts a nutcracker scavenger hunt on Nov. 25. Visit their website for more information.

Tannenbaum Forest: Be inspired by more than 70 decorated Christmas trees illuminating a century-old barn before checking out the shops and restaurants in main Amana. Stop by the Amana General Store to experience the International Christmas Market.
