One of our favorite places to visit is tucked away in the southeastern corner of Utah surrounded by glowing red rock towers - MOAB. The landscape resembles a scene from the Disney movie Cars (one of my favorites) and there is no shortage of things to do for the outdoor adventure seeker. Speaking of movies, did you know there have been over 50 Hollywood movies filmed in and around Moab including the famous scene where Thelma and Louise drive right off a cliff into a canyon?
My 3 daughters and I have visited Moab twice and stayed for 3-4 days each time. This is a special place for us where we forget technology for a few days, bond over some of the best breakfast burritos in the west and climb slick rock, squeeze through slot canyons and play hide and seek with the goblins. Keep reading, you’ll understand soon enough.
Where we have stayed.
Let me start by saying, we are not fancy pants and don’t really need much more than hot water and a cozy-ish bed so we tend to shoot for mid-price range hotel. After all, we don’t go to Moab to hang in a hotel, we go to roam the land.
With that said the two places we’ve stayed were comfortable, had plenty of hot water and both had a pool and hot tub – which is nice to have after a long day of hiking. Did I mention our daily adventures are 10-12 hour days? Yeah, something my husband wants no part of which is why my daughters go with me and he stays home and enjoys the silence. They are my favorite people to travel with because we all like to pack in as much as possible all while stopping to smell the desert flowers, of course.
We love food and my girls can EAT. Especially after hiking all day, we really work up an appetite. We might enjoy food as much as we enjoy travel. Some of our favorite places to fuel up are.
Check the websites for hours as several places in Moab are closed a day or two during the week.
What we’ve done.
We’ve done a ton of things in Moab and this is just a glimpse of some of our favorite things to do:
Goblin Valley State Park
Scenic by-way U-128 Moab, Utah
Two other places worth mentioning:
Dead Horse Point State Park – located about 40 minutes west of Moab. The views of the vistas are breathtaking and the trails are moderate to easy.
Little Wild Horse Canyon – located just outside Goblin Valley State Park. Highly recommend if you want to hike through slot canyons.
As you can see there really is a lot to do and see in Moab and every time we visit we find a new place to explore. Have you been to Moab? If so, what are some of your favorite spots?
