Visiting Moab, Southeastern & Central Utah

The colors of spring cascade across the canyons and crests of central Utah as warming weather welcomes this season’s visitors. It’s time to return to the Great Outdoors, and communities from Moab to Richfield to Nephi make great base camps, hosting a wide variety of special events, festivals, and fun filled local event calendars.

Mid-April visitors are in luck – for more than a week, entrance into all five of Utah's awe-inspiring national parks is free. 2016 Free Entrance Days celebrate National Park Week, from April 16th through the 24th. Stay in Moab to be just minutes from hiking, mountain biking, backpacking, four-wheeling, and more in Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park.

It's the best time of year to hit the links, and central Utah is home to countless first-rate golf courses. Open to the public, the Moab Golf Club is an especially nice facility, with an 18-hole, par-72 course with a with a dramatic red rock backdrop. There may be no better place to practice your swing this spring.

On May 28th and 29th, the 24th Annual Moab Arts Festival is fun for the whole family, with live music, a beer and wine garden, kids' activities, and more at Swanny City Park in Moab. Bring plenty of sunscreen – the fun gets started at 10 a.m. and goes until 6 p.m.

Head to the Moab Canyonlands, June 2nd through 4th, for the 2016 Canyonlands PRCA Rodeo. It's three nights of rodeo action and all sorts of other festivities, including live music and entertainment and a cash bar. Check local listings for individual event times throughout the weekend.

A couple weeks later, the 2016 Rockwell Relay: Moab to St. George sees bicycle teams of four to six race from Moab all the way down to St. George, in the southwestern reaches of the state. The two-day event is a great way to get out and experience the unique beauty of central and southern Utah.
