The unique desert climate you’ll find in Utah is one of the things that makes it a great getaway destination no matter when you come. In winter, beautiful snow blankets red rock, desert heat scorches during the summer months, but you’ll also want to be prepared for a rainy day during your stay. There are plenty of indoor activities in Moab for when the weather isn’t favorable.

Castle Creek Winery

This rainy day indoor activity is especially for the adults of the group. A visit to Castle Creek Winery located in the Red Cliffs Lodge, the largest winery in Utah, gets you out of your vacation rental and enjoying Moab, even when the rain is falling. The unique climate of Moab – dry desert heat during the day mixed with cooler temperatures at night – makes a great environment for producing good, healthy grapes of all types. Enjoy pinot noir, merlot, cabernet, sauvignon, chenin blanc, and chardonnay, all made from locally grown grapes. The winery has produced over 30 award-winning wines. The winery currently produces more than 8,000 combined cases of wine, with each bottle filled, labeled, and boxed on site. Enjoy a wine-tasting event and take some back to your rental to enjoy with a special dinner or after-dinner nightcap.

Tom Till Art Gallery

Add some art and culture to your Moab getaway when the sun isn’t shining. Stop by the gallery on a rainy day for an indoor activity that’s pleasing to the eye. The beautiful photography of Tom Till is on display for you to view and purchase. Everything from landscape and nature to history and travel subjects throughout Moab, Utah, and across the globe. It’s the perfect activity to add to a rainy day schedule.

Moab Rock Shop

Minerals, crystals, and gemstones, oh my! These, along with fossils and other rock finds are available at the Moab Rock Shop. The shop offers a myriad of minerals, as well as authentic fish, dinosaur, and other fossils that will amaze you. These samples may come from various locations around the country, but you’ll also be able to get your hands on some samples from locations around Utah. You can even get a local geology map so you can strike out on your own to hunt for your own specimens and learn more about the area when the rain isn’t coming down.

Spa Day

There are many spas in Moab and the surrounding area that will pamper you from head to toe. Relax your mind, body, and spirit for ultimate rejuvenation on your Moab escape, even when the rain has ruined your outdoor plans. Indulge yourself with a facial, mani/pedi, body wrap, or other treatment. Some spas may offer salon services so you can get a new hairstyle, too. For a sweetheart retreat, ask about a couple’s massage. Men can inquire about treatments designed especially for them, too!
