Giant Museum and Dinosaur Park
For some indoor/outdoor fun on a crisp fall day, transport yourself back in time to when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. The Moab Giants Museum and Dinosaur Park allows guests the change to learn about the dinosaurs that inhabited the area millions of years ago and get a chance to walk alongside their real tracks on the dinosaur trail. The outdoor trail features over 100 life-sized dinosaurs located near the tracks believed to have been left behind by them. The “Giants” may look real and fierce, but rest assured the dinos here are not alive. Inside, you’ll view a 3D theater presentation about the prehistoric beasts, go on an interactive learning tour full of touch screens, games, and exhibits.
Hike National Parks
Moab is a unique destination as it’s home to two of our nation’s national parks. Get lost exploring Arches National Park or Canyonlands National Park. Both parks are open year-round. Of course, you’ll see the iconic arches in Arches National Park, but you’ll also be able to explore smaller arches and other trails fit for beginners all the way up to experts. At Canyonlands, seek out Island in the Sky and the Needles, with several short trails leading to surprises like Whale Rock and Mesa Arch.
Ride the rapids in a raft or stick to calmer waters for activities in Moab like kayaking or stand up paddleboarding. No matter the water sport you choose, you’ll be surrounded by Moab’s beautiful red rock scenery at its best.
If traveling on two wheels is your favorite exercise, grab a bike and head out on the many trails near Moab. You’ll discover paved and unpaved trails that lead to stunning views. Try unpaved trails like Bar M Loop – great for families, Intrepid Trail – another family-friendly ride but more difficult or ask the rental shop staff for tips on the best trails.
