If you like wide open spaces—and who doesn’t these days—then one place that might be at the top of your list should be Moab, Utah. And we don’t mean the City of Moab-even though it’s a fine city-but the overwhelming number of national, state, and county parks in the immediate area.
To tell you about everything to see and do around Moab would take a sizable book. In fact, books are written pretty much everything you could think of to do in this American Southwest destination. From rock climbing to day hiking, mountain biking, four-wheeling, you name it, it’s here. There are tours if you want to be shown around, and there are rentals if you want to head out on your own. Many people bring their own equipment and head out to the back country.
Our quick little video here shows just a bit of only two parks in the Moab area: Arches National Park and Dead Horse Point State park. Both are easily accessible with any kind of vehicle and are an easy day trip from downtown Moab.
