There was an unending supply of activities including camping, off-roading, biking, climbing, and rafting. The people were friendly and the streets were clean.

My favorite place in Moab was the Moab Brewery. The food was good and the beer was good as well. The main thing to watch out for in Moab is the heat. It was over 100 degrees every day that I was there.

The city has a lot of great shops and dining establishments from which to choose. The city seems safe and friendly, everyone is very nice. People all take an acute interest in nature and engaging in physical activities out doors. Housing is reasonable and there is someone you can always meet and get along with when hanging out in town.

There is so much natural beauty that abounds in the general vicinity. You can simply tell that people enjoy their lives and enjoy living here. There is not a lot of stress like in the day to day work a day world, and much of what you are experiencing in Moab just seems real, like you have left the rest of the world behind. Just getting to meet other people with similar life interests in nature and out door recreation is whats makes the city a very friendly and fun place to be.

The gateway to Arches National Park. Has Jeep rental, some simple hotels, places to eat

Arches National Park is "the thing" that brings all visitors to Moab.
