Where vibrant red sandstone cliffs rise along the banks of the raging Colorado River, the city of Moab emerges like an oasis on the high desert landscape.

Canyonlands National Park, UtahHome to three scenic byways and located in the midst of such wonders as Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, the La Sal mountains and Dead Horse Point State Park, Moab is the perfect base for exploring the rugged beauty of southern Utah. The town itself was founded in the 1880s but it wasn't until the 1950s, when uranium was discovered in the nearby hills, that the city boomed.

Today it is the ideal hub for exploring the stark beauty of the region and offers a wide variety of outdoor activities such as mountain biking, 4x4 tours and white-water rafting.
