National Parks

Some travelers make visiting the national parks a road trip to Moab in itself. When you’re on your way to Moab and while you’re here, there are two national parks you can check off your list. Arches National Park features iconic natural arches and red rock scenery. Canyonlands offers equally breathtaking views and its own must-see formations like Island in the Sky and the Needles, as well as Whale Rock and Mesa Arch.

Colorado River

Make your path through the water instead of the asphalt. You road-tripped to Moab, now take a trip down the Colorado River. Add some thrills and excitement when you ride the rapids in a raft paddled by you and your group. You can also choose to stick to calmer waters for activities like kayaking, canoeing, or stand up paddleboarding. No matter the water sport you choose for your Colorado River experience, you’ll be surrounded by Moab’s beautiful red rock scenery at its best.
