Top 5 Tourist Hot Spots in Moab

Making the most of a trip to Moab isn’t hard to do. This destination naturally offers up scenery and options for fun that make it simple to indulge in a one-of-a-kind stay! That said, Moab definitely has a few places on the must-visit list that stand out from the crowd. When you’re excited to embrace every Moab tourist attraction in town, the following are five that you simply won’t want to overlook while you’re here. Happy Moab travels!

Slickrock Trail

The landscape that makes up Moab is a collection of captivating dunes, cliffs, rock formations, and canyons. That said, it comes as no surprise that mountain biking is a favored way for outdoor adventurers to take it all in and enjoy a challenge too! While there are a multitude of mountain biking trails to choose from in this area, the vast majority of cycling enthusiasts will head to Slickrock Trail at least once while they’re in town. This happens with good reason! Slickrock Trail is a thrilling and scenic route that traverses over 10 miles of inspiring landscape. It’s accessed only a few miles northeast of Moab and provides a technically demanding ride that’s sure to be remembered by adventurers long after they’ve left the route behind.

Sand Flats Recreation Area

Whether you’re in Moab on a romantic escape, traveling this way solo, or enjoying time with the entire family including little ones, a stop at the Sand Flats Recreation Area promises to please. This popular tourist hot spot is known and loved for its wide-open recreational areas that provide access to captivating canyons, mesas, sandstone domes, and more. Many people head this way to take to the trails while others come to admire the view made possible by a backdrop designed by the La Sal Mountains. From daytime exploring to evening stargazing, the Sand Flats Recreation Area is not to be missed.

Dead Horse Point State Park

Covering over 5,300 acres of high desert landscape and offering up unsurpassed views of the Colorado River, canyons, and cliffsides, it’s not hard to imagine why Dead Horse Point State Park is so popular among tourists. It’s a photographer’s dream come true and offers up endless possibilities for those that love to hit the trails. It’s a locale that beckons to climbers too and makes for a place that you’re likely to return to time and again. The most popular place to enjoy a spectacular view is Dead Horse Point itself. This sits at the end of a 2,000-foot mesa and provides a frame on a sweeping vista that’s hard to top.

Canyonlands National Park

A person could literally spend days exploring iconic Canyonlands National Park and still not see it all. It may be the notion that there’s just more to explore than you can even get to that makes this destination so wonderfully appealing to Moab visitors. It could also be the collection of sprawling canyons and colorful sandstone cliffs that makes Canyonlands National Park a place of superior interest. Likely, it’s a combination of it all! Rivers running through the park divide it into four distinct sections that visitors can try to conquer one at a time. These include The Needles, The Maze, Island in the Sky, and The Rivers. The beauty of taking time to explore each is that guests are invited to make the most of distinct natural landscapes that collectively make up an amazing place to discover.

Arches National Park

Of all the places to explore that Moab so freely offers up to its guests, there’s no place quite as tantalizing or iconic as Arches National Park. Here, photographs that have long hung on outdoor adventurer’s walls come to life in vivid and colorful style. Arches is as good as the photos would lead you to believe, in large part because it’s home to a stunning 2,000 sandstone arches—all of which are worth experiencing for yourself if you have the time. The park is a maze of trails that accommodate all skill levels and the options for snapping a pristine photo are seemingly endless too.

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
