Moab

Red Desert

The gateway to Utah's popular canyon country, Moab sits engulfed in the middle of desert wilderness. Surrounded by public lands used for both industrial and recreational purposes, the town of 5,000 offers visitors a chance to explore the dramatic landscape of red rock cliffs and buttes while on vacation. Mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, and skydiving are just a few of the adventures that launch from this region and can easily fill a nature-lover's itinerary. The hub of tourism in this part of the state, the city's downtown is just a short drive from a national park housing the world's greatest concentration of natural arches. The town serves as a convenient base for exploring Utah's desert wonders, with many casual shops, restaurants, and hotels, allowing you to take a civilized breather after a trip to the desert wilderness.

Where to stay in Moab

For affordable accommodations away from tourist crowds, stay outside Moab's busy downtown. Many inns in this area offer free shuttle services to the central part of town, allowing you quick and easy access to Moab's finest shops and restaurants. If you do not plan to spend much time in your room, consider staying at a budget-friendly motel or hostel. For the ultimate in outdoorsy options, campgrounds inside the area's national parks make up what they lack in modern amenities with their panoramic views of the red desert.
