With a stay in Moab, you’ll find yourself at the gateway to the appropriately named Arches National Park. Famed for its weird and wonderful rock formations, it truly is the adventure capital of Utah. On your trip here you’ll be stepping into your raft to paddle down the calm Colorado River for about an hour, taking in the stunning views that surround! You’ll drift past dusty red rocks, stopping for a drink and snack on the way. It’s a unique to experience this breath-taking landscape.

Departure from Moab

Sadly it’s time to leave, make sure you have a hearty breakfast, as it’s a slightly longer trip today on your American road trip. You’ll either be heading towards Bryce Canyon for a unique ranch experience or to the spectacular Zion National Park.
