Moab Madness



Description:

Moab has a bright and colorful history dating back to its possible creation of the biking scene. Bikes may have put Moab on the map but there are other things that will keep you coming back. Maybe you have heard of the amazing natural arches that are found all throughout the surrounding areas or the awesome white water rapids at your disposal. Or hey maybe you just love yourself some good ol' southwestern food, whatever the case come once and most likely you will be back.

Day 1 - Moab


Your trip to Moab is all about getting out there and exploring what the area has to offer, but it is always nice to come home to a nice soft bed and a warm shower and that is what the River Canyon Lodge provides. It is also really close to downtown so you are never far away from anything really. Come get a big breakfast before you hike into the park, Slickrock Cafe is just the place. In between the laughing that will occur because of the cleverly named foods you will enjoy amazing burgers, sandwiches and conventional breakfast. Off to the trail head and where better to start than the longest maintained trail in the area. This is a 3-5 hour adventure that will wind you through some of the best areas of the park. If you are feeling frisky the Double O Arch trail is an offshoot of the Devils Garden Loop. this trail is a bit challenging but you can do it. If when you return to the trail head you want more then venture to Landscape Arch for an arch that is over 100 yards long. Because you packed in your own lunch Miguel's Baja Grill will taste even better, especially when you wash it down with a nice margarita.

Day 2 - Moab, Mab


Wake up, your legs may be stiff but your will is strong and besides you get to raft the Colorado River. Jailhouse Cafe is the place to be this morning, chorizo scrambles, eggs Benedict, omelets, whatever you want they got. A nice stop before your trip is the Moab Adventure Center/ Red Rock Outfitters where you can stop in and purchase whatever you need or want for your trip down the Colorado River. Tag-A-Long River and Wilderness Expeditions will be guiding you on your rafting trip just like they have been since 1964. If you are a beginner or an expert they can take care of you. Either lunch is provided for you on the raft trip or you bring it yourself, be sure to check, no one wants to be hungry. You will not be hungry after your dinner at Eddie McStiff's Restaurant. Here you will find pot stickers, burgers, hummus, they have it all and then some, so if you want a seat get there early, or be ready to wait.

Day 3 - Moab


The Center Cafe is a nice change of pace with its white table cloths and cozy atmosphere. This restaurant has been featured in many magazines, go and taste for yourself. After breakfast it is back out into the wild, well its the Delicate Arch Trail, but wild sounds better. This is a really cool arch. A nice short walk is Balanced Rock Walk, where you will view a precariously balanced rock, imagine that. When you are finished with your activities for the moment grab a piece of history and food at Milt's Stop and Eat it is the oldest operating restaurant int Moab, since 1954. Recuperate, go biking, enjoy the pool, do whatever you like this is vacation but dinner at Buck's Grill House is something you do not want to miss, it is awesome, go check it out for yourself.
