What to Pack:Lake Arrowhead Vacation What to Pack


While the chance of snow in November is small, Lake Arrowhead’s average autumn temperatures can be chilly, ranging from low 30’s to highs in the upper 50’s, Fahrenheit. Prepare for temperature changes by packing layered apparel like sweaters, a good warm jacket, gloves, hats, and scarves.  Casual clothing is appropriate for most restaurants and venues in Lake Arrowhead. It’s a mountain town, after all.


Hiking boots Lake ArrowheadIf hiking is on the agenda, bringing sturdy shoes with a substantial grip, or hiking boots, and warm socks. Cold feet welcome warm slippers after a day spent in the crisp mountain air. If you’re sticking to shopping or hanging out in Lake Arrowhead Village, the pathways are paved and fully accessible. So, you will be able to sport cute wedge boots which look amazing with jeans and a slouchy sweater.

Children’s Gear (If applicable)           Pack Kids Lake Arrowhead

When traveling with children, bring along a bag of their favorite snacks, toys and a few games. And don’t forget your son or daughter’s favorite stuffed animal or security blanket. Many of our rentals feature portable cribs. So, make sure you contact us regarding your needs prior to your visit.

Thanksgiving Fix-ins

Thanksgiving Lake ArrowheadThe kitchens in our vacation rentals come fully equipped with dishes and utensils. But if you plan to prepare a Thanksgiving feast, bring along your favorite roasting pans. Stater Bros Market, conveniently located in the upper level of Lake Arrowhead Village, right by Arrowhead Property Rental, allows you to easily purchase all the ingredients necessary for your holiday meal. Additionally, the bakery at Jensen’s Market in nearby Blue Jay features a bakery full of decadent treats. Perhaps your idea of a relaxing vacation does not include cooking? Many mountain restaurants will be open on Thanksgiving day (The Lake Arrowhead Resort is offering two feasts – call for reservations), or you can order a prepared feast from one of the markets.
