Your Moab Family Adventure Vacation starts in Colorado National Monument, reaching 2000 feet above the valley, home of the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Arches. You will be able to experience the vastness of this National Monument as you raft down the Colorado River to see the sheer cliff walls, dessert plants, and abundant wildlife. Your day starts of with a delicious breakfast at Moab’s Jail House Cafe, boasting the best breakfast in town!
Afterwards you will experience Moab and why it has been declared an American biking mecca. Astounding cliff walls, and endless views of spectacular landscapes, create a biker’s paradise to explore the views from the seemingly endless mountaintops. The trails and loops provide endless hours of adventure as you experience the floating feeling of Moab. To top it all off, you also get a 14-mile downhill rush along the mesa to experience the sheer heights first hand.
Arches National Park and it’s erosion over millions of years have provided some of the most awesome arches, incredible sandstone towers, and eroded monoliths. Your visit to Delicate Arch during your Moab Adventure is the perfect photo opportunity to capture the La Sal Mountain Range and all of its glory. Just when you feel like you have gotten enough dessert experience you can cool off again in Mary Jane Canyon.
No adventure is quite complete in a dessert paradise like this without some off-roading by Hummer Jeep. You will explore Slick Rock over petrified sand dunes, as the wheels of the jeep grip to the sandpaper like surfaces of the dunes. Unwind at the end of the day with a relaxing deep tissue massage, and a feast of finger-licking fares before retreating to your comfortable bed for hours of peaceful slumber.
At the end of each night, during your Southwestern U.S. Adventure Vacation, you will retreat to Red Cliffs Lodge, with a rugged western feel, located right along the Colorado River. This stunning location has even been filmed in many classic movies including the John Wayne classic, Rio Grande. Voted “Best In State” award for hotels in Utah for the year of 2012, as well as past years, this is a must experience resting location after a full day of adventure.
