Famous for beautiful rock formations, world-class mountain biking, and amazing whitewater rafting, Moab is an adventure just waiting for you to discover it. Located 235 miles southeast of Salt Lake City, if you dislike the outdoors, you should probably scratch Moab from your list; but, if you like to go outside, get ready for years of exploration:
- Visit Arches National Park and see the world’s largest concentration of natural stone arches — over 2,000 crazy rock formations
- Take on some of the most challenging 4×4 trails inside Canyonlands National Park
- Mountain bike Slickrock, the trail that launched the fat tire craze
- Experience some of the best whitewater river rafting in the world
- Relax from your adventures in downtown Moab with better restaurants than a town this size deserves, plus fantastic entertainment

Oh, the shopping, and the skiing, and the beautiful scenery. Arguably one of the prettiest locations in the United States, Park City is right in the mountain tops, 30 miles east of the capital.

- Ski or snowboard at any one of three world-class resorts in the fluffiest powder you’ve ever experienced
