Top 5 Spots for a Gorgeous View in Moab

Making your way to Moab is an inspiring moment, no matter when you arrive. This incredible vacation destination is known for its amazing landscapes, options for fun, and dining and shopping options that are just as intriguing to travelers! Of course, half the fun of heading this way is making time to make the most of a great view or two. While there is no shortage of sensational vistas waiting to greet Moab guests, there are a few that stand out thanks to their impressive features, dimensions, and even colors. The following are five of the top spots for Moab sightseeing the next time your travel plans bring you this way.

Dead Horse Point

When you’re seeking an incredible and elevated perspective on Moab’s mesmerizing terrain, Dead Horse Point is the place to find it. This vantage point is accessible within the greater Dead Horse Point State Park and is found at the very end of a massive mesa by the very same name. From this spot, guests will enjoy a view from a place situated 2,000 feet above the ground! As you take in the sights of sprawling canyons, colorful cliffside walls, and a maze of mesas in between, it’s impossible not to be inspired. To make the moment that much more visually appealing, considering stopping by Dead Horse Point just before evening and making the most of that time when the sun goes down and colors fill the sky above.

Upper Colorado River Scenic Byway U-128

Moab is a vacation destination filled with rich history and inviting landscape which means it isn’t hard to find a good view or two here no matter what time of year you arrive. That said, there’s something particularly appealing about the combination of natural features available to be admired for those that take to the Upper Colorado River Scenic Byway on U-128. This ravishing route sits on the North side of the city and calls 44 miles of road its very own. Driving along this scenic byway, motorists can enjoy red rock walls and stop-off points for bouldering too. The landscape here has a way of pairing low canyons with open fields providing for some of the best panoramic views Moab has to offer.

Potash Road

If you’re the type of traveler that looks forward to pairing inspiring views with options to get up close to intriguing historical landmarks, a drive along Potash Road is sure to please. Sometimes referred to as Wall Street, Potash Road hosts more than 17 miles of route lined with towering sandstone walls! This view promise to be amazing in and of itself, but there’s even more to enjoy for those that continue to explore. Potash Road follows alongside the Colorado River and sweeps through corridors marked by both lush canyons and rocky points complete with ancient art still visible on the surface! If you’re on the hunt for designated pull off and lookout points, both the River Pullout and Jaycee Park, and Portal Overlook are great places to simply stop and take it all in.

La Sal Loop

Moab’s terrain is defined by stunning rock formations, but for the traveler looking for a view that offers up even more in the way of contrasting landscapes, a trip along the La Sal Loop is a must! This scenic route offers up some of the most gorgeous views around complete with a La Sal Mountain surrounding, alpine peaks, and a collection of far-off canyons to enjoy from a distance. While all of those red cliffs are fun to view up close, there’s something inspiring about taking in their dimensions from this vantage point that makes them even more impressive.

Arches National Park

When it comes to mesmerizing moments built on a foundation of gorgeous views, stopping at Arches National Park is a decision that leads to unforgettable vistas at nearly every turn. It’s hard to pick just one place in Arches National Park that’s more scenic than the other, which makes it such an oasis of visual potential for those that head this way. From Delicate Arch and Double Arch to the unique formations that are nestled into Devils Garden, guests will find no limit to the gorgeous views they can enjoy here.

This is the most clean Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in. The house is extremely stunning and cozy. It’s so we’ll cared for and clean that the sheets smelled like Softener. The amount of detail in that house has is something to really appreciate. The movie theater is wonderful alongside with the pool. Oh! And it’s fully stocked with everything you need . This house was one of the best. Looking forward to stay here again in the future. Everything was smooth and communication with the host was great 10/10

Upon arrival we were thrilled with the cleanliness of this unit! I have never been in a rental cleaner than this! Not one stray hair or fuzzball could be found. This rental has anything and everything you need! The kitchen is fully equipped with any small appliance you would need, a multitude of cooking spices, oils and nonstick spray. Aluminum foil , sandwich bags, sharpies and batteries were even available! The beds, couch and furnishings were comfortable and felt great after our long days exploring the area. Even the 2 foldaway beds were a hit with a couple of our teenagers. In the garage we were happy to have available a bike repair stand and multiple bike tools, including a standing pump and wrenches. Also available in the garage was a giant Jenga set and a cornhole set that our teenagers had a ball with having nightly tournaments. It’s perfectly located in my opinion. It’s a quick bike ride or drive to town and to area attractions. We were primarily there for mountain biking, but also visited Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park. We also took a rafting trip on the Colorado River. This was the best trip we’ve had in years and that is mostly due to this rental! We had no issues and no complaints! Great job hosts! You are truly making vacation dreams come true!

Stress free vacation! All the family was able to be together in one location. Normally we have a caravan of travel trailers where everyone goes and hides to get out of the heat. Being able to eat together, watch movies together and get on the razors and ride right to the trails made all the difference. My grandkids didn't want to leave, neither did my nieces. They loved the pool and bike ride to the yogurt shop. Perfect location, tons of parking for several trailers, excellent customer service and very clean. I would stay a hundred times more!

We booked this house to come together for my daughters 8th birthday celebration at the lake, and wow were we impressed! Beautiful home, very modern minimalist style. All amenities provided! No need to bring toiletries they have the best products! The kitchen is fully stocked, you’ll have enough dishes for 20 plus! Exceptionally clean! The showers are like a spa, and they have soft water so, you come out with super soft skin. The backyard is an oasis, for all ages. The kids and adults can all enjoy at the same time! You will love this place. It’s close to the lake and the AC is always at the perfect temp! We will be booking this palace in the future for sure!!!!

This property was everything it was described as. Spacious, clean, great spaces for gathering. We stayed 3 nights here with 21 people and we had a blast. About a ten minute drive from the “downtown” area of lake Haveasu. I couldn’t be more pleased with the property. Overall it made our trip and we had a wonderful time. Would absolutely return!

We all loved our visit to Moab. It was comforting to come back to this place after a day in the elements, feeling like we were luxuriating after working out hard. This place is well stocked. From the kitchen appliances, cookware and even condiments to the linens and bathroom soaps and lotions, we kept commenting that this was the best stocked vacation rental any of us had experienced. Having the garage to store our bikes and other gear made it easy to come and go. The team we texted with about questions or reports about problems were always responsive and accommodating. We recommend this place without question.

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
