While we never need a reason for a summer getaway, you can always use the 4th of July as a great reason to visit Moab! This summer holiday is one of our favorite times here in the city, and you can easily see why. Moab will host a variety of fun events, and you will have access to many exciting activities. Take a look at what your 4th of July in Moab can look this year:

4th of July Beehive Bash in Moab

When it comes to throwing a celebratory bash that is worthy of the 4th of July, there is no place better than Moab. One of the biggest celebrations in town is the annual 4th of July Beehive Bash that takes place every year. This two-day celebration showcases our nation’s birthday with some exciting activities. The fun and excitement start the evening of July 3rd with a free movie screening of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. This movie screening is perfect for adult guests, with beers being offered at the showing. Don’t miss out watching this classic film starting at 9:00 PM. The remaining activities will all take place on July 4th starting at 9:00 AM sharp. Join in on the fun for an exciting volleyball tournament that will last until 2:00 PM. Get together a crew and put your skills to the test with this fun yet competitive tournament. A variety of family games and activities will happen from noon to 4:00 PM. Some of the exciting activities included are a dunk tank, bounce house, watermelon eating contest, fire truck water spray, photo booth, and a beer garden for the adults. Later in the evening from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM the GCHS mountain bike team will be showcasing a fundraiser dinner. Last but certainly not least, the Beehive Bash will end with a free concert from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM with artists Shuffle. All of these exciting activities will take place at Swanny Park located at 100 West and 400 East. Don’t forget to stick around for the dazzling fireworks display that will take place when the concert ends at 9:00 PM. Now that is the 4th of July done right!

4th of July River Parade in Moab

Another incredible annual event that takes place in Moab each year is the 4th of July Rafting Parade. This aquatic event takes place on the Colorado River for a unique experience that you won’t find anywhere else. Just as the name suggests, the event is a parade on the river with local companies decking out patriotic floats to display. The Rafting Parade will take place on the 4th of July and will be available to view at two different times: 8:15 AM and 11:30 AM. Seating is limited for this popular event, so make sure you get to the viewing areas early. Each child in attendance will receive a free 4th of July souvenir just for showing up. Make sure to dress up for the occasion, as the best costume will win an incredible prize! Spots for the 4th of July River Parade in Moab can be booked through Mild to Wild Rafting & Jeep Tours. You can book your rafting experience by calling 970-247-4789. Don’t miss out on this fantastic 4th of July experience exclusive only to Moab!

Exciting Summer Activities

When it comes to a fun and exciting summer season, you simply cannot beat visiting Moab. We are known for a great outdoor season that is full of exciting activities. You can explore the area with hiking or mountain biking. Pick up a mountain bike from a local rental shop or book a mountain bike tour experience. If you want to see Moab from a different angle, you can book a horseback riding experience through the La Sal Mountains. As mentioned, we are nearby the Colorado River so you can expect plenty of boating and rafting. Many visitors come down for the white-water rafting that is some of the best in the state. Look out for white water rafting tours that go through Westwater Canyon or Cataract Canyon. The Green River is also close by and features plenty of rafting options too. If you want to beat the heat, book an early morning ATV or Jeep tour that will take you across the canyons from the comfort of a luxury vehicle. You can also stay cool by visiting a local attraction such as the Moab Film Museum. Local wineries such as Castle Creek Winery produce award-winning wines, so stop by for a tasting or grab a bottle to go. The options are endless when you visit around the 4th of July!

Beautiful, clean home with perfect location. Everything was 5 minutes away. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. Communication was incredibly prompt. The blender was broken and after letting the hosts know, they had it replaced within the hour without even being asked, which was super appreciated. We highly recommend!

We had a blast! Totally exceeded expectations! This property is really a big “compound” with two houses. Super clean, comfortable and spacious. It has a luxury resort feel, which made for an incredibly relaxing weekend even with a really large group. There are so many places to sit and relax with the group or on your own. Coolest amenities we liked were: **The pool and hot tub - pool has a waterfall plus it was heated and big enough for our large group. Gorgeous place for a night time swim. **Movie & Game Room - loved the movie-size projection screen. Great for watching football while playing pool, air hockey, etc **The private electric gate - has a door opener and gate that lets you drive several cars right up to the doors in between the two houses plus 2 garage parking spots. Very convenient for unloading and for securely parking a boat trailer or RV. This house was immaculate and well taken care of. Definitely coming back next time we’re in Havasu. Highly recommended!

We have stayed in Airbnb’s all over the world! We really loved this one. I think it’s well rounded and precisely what anyone needs; whether that is for large groups, couples, romantic, homey, open, cozy, functional etc. it’s a bit off town so perfect for quiet and calm. We did hear neighbors a few times, it was never at night. We slept well, there are many beds to choose from certainly. Laundry room is accessible and convenient to bedrooms. Decorating is lovely and charming. Kitchen is great, and stocked for anything you’d like to cook basically. It is clean and very well kept… NO SHOES! Remember that rule! It’s why we rented… It should be a rule anywhere. The national parks are all within driving distance and often quite dirty. This is an excellent rental and we would stay here over and over. I have rarely felt as such for other locations or home. Thanks

Outstanding location - hiking, fishing, a short distance from the house and great small town shopping opportunities. Well equipped home, nothing lacking in terms of kitchen items, bathing needs, and hot tub. beautiful vistas from most rooms in the house. Our family enjoyed our stay immensely.

We had a terrific time at the property. Everything was like new! Great amenities and the booster chair and pack-n-play were perfect for my 2 year old.

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. Very clean and spacious. Well stocked with kitchen essentials and then some. Had a good variety of games to play, and for the little kids they had blocks and a little play area under the stairs. Communication was great, didn’t have any issues. Will definitely stay again!

Rented three units. We had a total of 14 people. The three units gave everyone privacy when needed and allowed for easy gatherings and meals together. Everyone in the party loves the places and would rent again! Location is great and the units themselves were awesome! Very clean, spacious and well stocked. We had no issues at all. Main activities for the week were mountain biking, hiking, 4-wheeling and sight seeing. I highly recommend these rentals!!

Really beautiful property here, smells new. Nice finishes and very comfortable furniture. Close to everything in town and a stones throw from the trails. Can’t wait to return!
