Local Moab resident, Heila Ershadi, gives the insider take on where to go and what to see in Moab.
A trip to Moab can mean mean many things, such as appreciating the landscape’s astounding beauty, experiencing the charm of a unique desert town, enjoying world-class outdoor recreation, and even reconnecting with the wild magic found in nature and your own soul. It can also mean enduring maddening traffic jams and crowded trails in sunstroke-level heat. If you would like a Moab experience that is a bit off the crushingly popular beaten path, consider the following itinerary.
If you are coming into town from the north, make your first stop at Moab Giants. To call it a dinosaur museum would be an understatement. Family-friendly Moab Giants features an outdoor dinosaur exhibit spread along a half-mile trail. The dino models are interactive, life-size,
