Moab is an active, popular town (pop. 8,900) in the heart of the beautiful red rock canyon country of southeastern Utah. It plays host to the thousands who visit southeastern Utah to take advantage of the area's great recreational opportunities. From Moab, one can conveniently hike in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, mountain bike on the famous Moab Slickrock Trail, whitewater raft the Colorado River, tackle the thousands of miles of rugged canyon roads in four-wheel drive vehicles or horseback ride amidst the alpine beauty of the La Sal Mountains.
There's also some great places to visit within the town itself. A couple of museums, such as the paleontology and frontier-history focused Dan O'Laurie Museum and the memorabilia-filled Film Museum at Red Cliffs Ranch, are worth a stop. Rock art is scattered around the city, including within the golf course, and more modern art galleries are also part of Moab.
Moab is located 32 miles south of I-70 on Highway 191 near Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. You will find numerous dining and lodging options, plenty of outfitters eager to supply equipment, guides and information and all other services a traveler might normally need.
