Things To Do

Moab is a thrill-seeker's playground. But it’s also a place where you can stretch your legs or hone your skills in nearly every outdoor pursuit.

No matter how you choose to spend your time in Moab, come prepared with a sense of exploration, adventure and plenty of water.

Shopping & Dining

With such a unique and impressive landscape, it  was only a matter of time before Moab would blossom into an eclectic and artistic community. Popping into the locally-owned restaurants, boutiques, art exhibits and gear outfitters that line Main Street is the best way to really feel the character of the place.

After a day on the trails, head into town for dinner at Sunset Grill, a once-privately owned mansion that’s been repurposed as one of Moab’s finest restaurants, or stop by Moab Brewery for a burger and a local craft beer. Once your legs are rested and you’re feeling rejuvenated, spend the evening exploring downtown’s outdoor art exhibits, and gear up for tomorrow’s adventure.

History & Wellness

No trip to Moab is complete without taking a beat to understand and appreciate this incredible desert’s history. Take a trip through Moab’s prehistoric past at Moab Giants, a museum where you can take an outdoor stroll among more than 100 life-size dinosaur replicas, or stop by the Film Museum at Red Cliffs Ranch to discover the area’s rich cinematic history. From there you can visit one of the plentiful rock imagery sites left behind by the Anasazi and Fremont people.

However you choose to spend your time in Moab, remember to be present and appreciate the moment. The red rocks are a place for healing and wellness, and Moab’s locals care passionately for them. It’s up to everyone who finds adventure here to act as a steward for the environment and help keep Moab Forever Mighty.
