Moab


The town of Moab is a perfect destination resort access point to an amazing land of towering red sandstone cliffs, scenic vistas, and mountain fed rivers and streams. This special place sits in a beautiful green valley on the banks of the Colorado River. To the south of town rises the majestic LaSal Mountains that reach almost 13,000 feet.

The town welcomes over one million tourists each year, so you'll find excellent lodging and accommodation options like motels, hotels, campgrounds, bed & breakfast's, guesthouses, cabins, and condominiums. Moab and the surrounding area have many restaurants to suit any appetite along with an abundance of shopping options. Just a short four-mile drive will put you in Arches National Park. Also nearby is Canyonlands National Park, which has been carved, etched, and imprinted by millions of years of erosion by the Colorado River and its many tributaries.

On the drive to the Canyonlands National Park, also known as the Island in the Sky Discrict, you'll also have access to the Dead Horse Point State Park. When venturing out to any of these areas know a few things first. Fill up your gas tank, bring extra gallons of water, as well as a packed lunch and snacks. Without these essentials, you won't have much fun exploring this spectacular area.
