Destination guide

Adventure and fun near Moab vacation home rentals

Grab your spurs and cowboy hat to explore Moab, where hundreds of filmmakers have created Wild West epics. However, rather than take to the horse and saddle, hire a 4WD to traverse the winding trails and challenging terrain that carry you through some of the USA's most beautiful canyons. See a spot where a vehicle won't take you? Walking boots and hiking trails will do the trick. At the end of a tiring but worthwhile day of exploration, sipping a glass of wine in your Moab vacation rental is the perfect way to take the load off your feet.

Things to do

Sightseeing near Moab vacation rentals

Welcome to the world of the Wild West—or at least the location filmmakers use to embody it. Picture yourself slinging guns and shouting 'Yee-haw' while exploring the canyons and natural splendor at Arches National Park and the Westwater Canyon. The Moab Giants are among the most admired views, but the Intrepid Trail is the place to test your mountain biking skills. Eat delicious food at a local steakhouse, and then take the kids to the Moab Museum of Film & Western Heritage so they can be little cowboys and -girls for the day.

Activities

Things to go near Moab vacation homes

Flocks of gold hunters etched dusty trails through the red and orange canyons in the 50s, but 4WD tours and hikes will help you find your inner adventurer right here in the new millennium. Do you dare take on Hell's Revenge to see the looming Canyon Giants? A day of trekking will be well worth it when you relax and peruse your pictures with the family in your Moab vacation rental. Zesty local wines are available in shops and the quaint, stylistic restaurants dotted around Utah's recreation capital.

Weather

Best time to travel to Moab getaway cabins

Summer's hot and dry days make Moab trails even more rewarding, and mild evening temperatures accompanied by lingering sunsets leave a lasting impression on any traveler. Want to strap on a snowboard rather than hiking boots? Winter can bring snow to the high elevations, with plenty of excursions on offer near convenient Moab vacation rentals. Plus, with temperatures between 30 and 50 degrees even in the coldest months, you'll only need a jacket to enjoy the many walks and tours. The national parks and mountain slopes come to life fully between March until October.

Natural features

Leave the concrete jungle behind

To put Moab's natural beauty into words is almost impossible, but the minute you feast your eyes on the 2,000 sandstone arches at Arches National Park, you'll see why Moab is synonymous with red-layered rocks that epitomize a cowboy's playground. Embark on a day tour to witness desert wildlife species like coyotes, porcupines, eagles, and perhaps even some chipmunks. The winding Will Creek and Ken's Lake add a welcome watery touch to an otherwise dry but scenic desert, and the lake provides a natural swimming spot to cool down during summer.
