With easy access to Arches and Canyonlands national parks, Dead Horse Point State Park, the Colorado River, and thousands of square miles of amazing red rock landscapes waiting to be explored, Moab delivers nonstop fun and excitement for the entire family. While exploring the most unique scenery in the American Southwest, visitors can relax and experience the small town hospitality of Moab – the perfect base camp for world-famous mountain biking, hiking, four-wheel driving or river trips of any length and experience level. For a more relaxing visit, just sit back and enjoy the scenery along the national park scenic drives on Moab’s three Scenic Byways.

Located just five miles north of Moab is Arches National Park, which contains the world's largest concentration of natural sandstone arches. Although more than 2,000 arches are located within the park's 76,518 acres, the park also contains an astounding variety of other geological formations. Colossal sandstone fins, massive balanced rocks, soaring pinnacles and spires dwarf visitors as they explore the park's viewpoints and hiking trails. A paved scenic drive takes visitors to most of the major viewpoints and trailheads within the park.

Driving less than an hour from Moab will put visitors atop the mythical sounding Island in the Sky, a remarkable district of Canyonlands National Park that makes one feel on top of the world. Canyonlands is the largest national park in Utah, and its diversity staggers the imagination. The Island in the Sky offers many pullouts with spectacular views along the paved scenic drive. Hiking trails and four-wheel-drive roads provide access to backcountry areas for day or overnight trips.

The great scenery, however, doesn’t end with Moab’s national parks. Dead Horse Point State Park is a short drive from town and it offers visitors amazing views of the snaking meanders of the Colorado River 2,000 feet below.

Moab is also home to some of the greatest mountain biking on the planet. There is a huge variety of trails for mountain bikers of any experience level, from beginners looking for a scenic ride through beautiful canyons and mesa tops, to seasoned bikers looking for the ultimate technical challenge.

Moab is the only major town in Utah that is located on the banks of the Colorado River. The area is known for its family-oriented whitewater trips on the Fisher Towers section of the Colorado River, along with wilder single- and multi-day trips available in Westwater and Cataract Canyons. Additionally, canoes, kayaks and paddle boards are the perfect way to explore the calm water segments of the Colorado.

Moab’s perfect climate has also made it a magnet for year-round outdoor events and festivals, and the downtown business district has risen to the occasion with a great collection of restaurants, microbreweries, shops and galleries. Moab’s diverse cuisine will please any palate, from regional southwestern fare to world-class gourmet. Stroll through the downtown shops for a great selection of southwestern arts and jewelry, souvenirs, T-shirts and much more.
