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!

We have stayed in several of these condos, and love how spacious they are. This place was clean, and even had snacks waiting for us. We like this spot because of it's location; it is a great place to experience the wonders of Moab. We will definitely return one day.

This is a large, well kept home in the Entrada community in Moab. We were in Moab to scout out some locations in Arches National Park and Canyonlands for my daughter’s upcoming bridal portraits. We travel to this area frequently to hike and love the beautiful surroundings. This home is ideally located for access to Arches and Canyonlands. The main floor and bedrooms are large, as are the bathrooms. I really appreciated how clean the home was and the extra amenities provided-plenty of bath towels, beach towels, and laundry soap etc. were supplied. I always appreciate owners who provide these things as I can’t stand to make an extra trip to the store to buy things that should be provided with a home rental. The kitchen is well stocked as well. This would be a great home for any family gathering. Nice, large, kitchen table for meals, and, if you have kids they would love the easy pool access as the back of the home is directly by the pool area. Just a note-the bedrooms are upstairs, but very easy stair access and large stairwell area. One thing I did mention to the local property managers was to have black-out curtains put in the master bedroom as the pool lights were bright and they did shine through the blinds. That may have been done since our stay, but it would make it easier if you are a light sleeper. This is a wonderful property and we would definitely reserve it again when we return to Moab.

This beautiful townhome is 10 minutes from Arches and less than 30 from Canyonlands. It is modern and beautiful, and filled with every amenity needed and more! Comfortable beds and bedding, stocked kitchen, and the property manager was readily available and checked in to ensure our stay was perfect. Excellent hosts, lovely home, and perfect location. Could not ask for more!

We couldn’t be happier with our experience in Moab, and at the condo! My 7 year old son loved the private kid’s space, we took his Nintendo switch and plugged it in easily for play with his uncle and aunt. It was very comfortable in there, and all were able to spend quality time together. I started with the icing of our trip… I should back up to talk about how comfortable the beds and pillows were for everyone! Plenty of fluffy bath towels were available and the showers were already stocked with soaps and very clean - just like home! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for easy breakfast and dinner meals. We all loved the plates and bowls provided, that we inquired where we could find them for our own homes! We all loved the style of the condo. It was nicely decorated, yet not overdone and very livable with all the comforts. Having the double washer and dryer was so convenient, and we were so grateful for the variety of soaps provided, as well as hangers to hang our dark clothes that we didn’t want to dry in the dryer, AND they provided a floor fan! There really was nothing more that we could have asked for! We loved the location, you can’t go wrong staying here! Next time we will bring our mountain bikes, as well as the jeeps :) I’ll also add that we were very impressed with the recommendations for restaurants that were highlighted in the wall, where we could also check out when we were ready to leave. There is VERY good food in Moab - that was a super pleasant surprise. We are still talking about some of the restaurants from our trip in April 2022 for Easter Jeep Week. We had such a good time that we booked our next trip to stay at this location in April 2023! We can’t wait to visit again!
