With its colossal sandstone structures and scenic state and national parks, it is no wonder that Moab, Utah, is one of the most sought-out destinations in the American Southwest. The breathtaking landscape of red rocks and forests, along with the Colorado River's cool waters, arrest the senses with their rugged beauty.
On this audio tour, you'll find out why Moab is considered the adventure capitol of the world. From slick-rock mountain biking, to ATV exploring, or white water rafting on the Colorado river, a Moab trip is jam-packed with fun and adrenaline.
Let this TravelStorys KOA Moab tour guide you on your adventure. Starting at the KOA Moab, we'll accompany you along US Highway 191 through the town of Moab. From there, you will continue on to the entrance of Arches National Park. After Arches, the tour will guide you along UT 313 into Canyonlands National Park and to Dead Horse Point State Park.
Moab is home to two of Utah's mighty five national parks. Explore Arches National Park and its iconic Delicate Arch, as well Canyonlands National Park with its sweeping vistas and red rock formations. Visit the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands and you will immediately understand why it's called that. As you look down from the main road, you'll see red dirt roads 1,000 feet below you. If you want to attempt to travel those, make sure you have 4-wheel drive!
Around every corner, there's something new to explore. Whether you are interested in homesteading history, stunning geology, or desert wildlife, this audio tour will supplement your travels. We'll tell you about the ancient native people who roamed these lands centuries ago, as well as the dinosaurs that called this place home well before humans arrived.
This tour is sponsored by Kampgrounds of America, whose nearly 500 destinations around North America offer every kind of camping, from simple roadside campsites to premium accommodations and full-service resorts. Founded on the basic concept of the American road trip, KOA supports efforts to improve outdoor education and enjoyment.
