Places for Family Vacations – Moab Utah

Family Vacations IdeasLooking for great places for family vacations? There are lots of things for families to do in Utah. With five National Parks, historic sites like Temple Square, and geography as diverse as any you’ll find, Utah is indeed one of the best places for family vacations.

There might not be a better place to catch all the diversity in one place as you’ll find in the southeast corner of the state in a town named Moab (pronounced "mow" "ab"). In Moab, you’ll find two of the five National Parks: Arches and Canyonlands. With such beauty and opportunity for adventure abounding, you will quickly find that the place is chock full of ways to explore the red rock backcountry immediately surrounding the little town.

Here is a list of great activities you’ll find in Moab:

  • River Adventures (multi-day, one-day, wild water or calm float trips)
  • Hummer Safaris (like a roller coaster, but also nothing like a roller coaster!)
  • Mountain Biking (Moab is world re-known for incredible biking)
  • Climbing & Canyoneering (learn to climb up a cliff, or drop down a rope into a grotto)
  • Guided tours and hikes in Arches Nat’l Park
  • Scenic flights over Canyonlands Nat’l Park–arguably the best scenic flight in the world)
  • Horseback riding in Castle Valley
  • Jetboat Tours on the Colorado River to Indian ruins and points of interest
