When it comes to outdoor playgrounds for hiking, biking and exploring, Moab, Utah holds a special place in the hearts of travelers. The dynamic scenery this city offers up is an incredible opportunity to make the most of rock formations, cliffs, and canyons in combination with rivers, desert landscapes and a charming downtown packed with restaurants and shops to explore too. As winter melts away into spring in Utah, the warmer months invite guests to come and make the most of this inviting destination. When you’re putting together an itinerary, here are a few spring activities you’ll want to place at the top of the list.
Enjoy a Landmark Location
With the snow long gone, a hike to Delicate Arch in Arches National Park is one of the most exciting activities a visitor to Moab can do in the spring! This iconic rock formation is truly one of a kind and worth visiting, even if just to say you have. The ascent to the arch itself is gradual, making this a great hike even for beginners. The route leading to Delicate Arch is a mere three miles out and back, providing plenty of time to extend your adventures in Arches National Park if you’d like, or to simply continue on your way once you’ve captured that inspiring photograph.
Encounter Movie History
When you’re hoping to combine a scenic drive with a touch of Hollywood glamour, plan to take a trip along Potash Road to Thelma and Louise Point. Also referred to as Highway 142, this breathtaking route begins just north of Moab and provides travelers with views of everything from canyons to petroglyphs. When you reach Thelma and Louise Point, stop and enjoy the view. This is the very spot the movie was filmed and while that iconic scene is said to be at the Grand Canyon, Moab is proud to be the authentic filming location that guests can still enjoy.
Dine at The Broken Oar
No matter what season you arrive in Moab, you’ll have an appetite to attend to, however, spring brings the warmer weather and finding that flavorful and inspiring setting is key to an amazing culinary experience. Head over to The Broken Oar located at 53 West 400 North to indulge in everything from American favorite bites and seafood to steak and pasta upon request. This charming locale is loved for its rustic, cabin-inspired interior as well as its amazing views. The Broken Oar also boasts two levels of seating options, making for a fun and vibrant dining experience for all that might just bring you back for seconds.
