Moab is considered a gateway to recreation and stunning views as you are welcomed by two national parks: Arches and Canyonlands. Such a rare distinction makes this destination so special. Of course, you can’t visit Moab without hiking and experiencing the Delicate Arch, one of Utah’s most famous landmarks. The three-mile hike up to the freestanding arch takes you past petroglyphs and staggering 360 views of red rocks as far as the eye can see. But the true magic happens when that tiny picture you see on a license plate appears before your eyes.
But hiking isn’t the only excursion Moab has to offer. After visiting the national parks my family and I decided to experience some evening horseback riding through the Moab Adventure Center. We spent hours riding through old trails lined by Moab’s sheer beauty and on paths carved many years ago where civilization hasn’t touched.
After our scenic-filled and exhausting day, we were more than eager to check in to The Radcliffe Hotel, receive our complimentary hand-crafted drink and enjoy a night of luxury and comfort. We were especially excited to utilize The Radcliffe Hotel’s Gearheads Outdoor Store, equipped for any outdoor adventure from apparel to guidebooks and maps. In a town where outdoor entertainment is never-ending, there is no place more perfect to stay.
