Moab

— 6 nights

Red Desert

The gateway to Utah's popular canyon country, Moab sits engulfed in the middle of desert wilderness.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at RedRock Astronomy and Moab Museum. Family-friendly places like Arches National Park and Off-Road Tours will thrill your kids. Change things up with a short trip to John McConnell Math and Science Center in Grand Junction (about 1h 45 min away). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Colorado National Monument, take in the exciting artwork at Bret Edge Photography Gallery, take in breathtaking views at Lions Park, and take the plunge with Skydive Moab.
