Moab, Utah located in southeastern Utah has become a mecca for the adventurous spirit. Moab is the gateway to two of Utah’s five National Parks, a State Park and a hub for attractions and activities in Southeastern Utah. Moab is the perfect year-round destination in the State of Utah to Mix Business with Pleasure. Add this desirable incentive to reward your colleagues, board or assocaition members for remaining productive during this economic downturn.

A quick look at Moab's meeting facilites will start the planner to consider the potential of doing business in Moab and that there is plenty of activity to complement the selection of Moab's destination. Outdoor Pursuits arel hiking, biking, jeeping, golfing, rafting, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, fishing, jet boating, skydiving, RVing, climbing and relaxing. In addition, the calendar of events highlights the number of festivals, shows and tournaments that are held on an annual basis in the community. Think of this a resume of possibilities, as you continue to develop your meeting, product launch or event in Moab. The Matheson Wetlands Preserves has a pathway that is beautiful, quiet and abundant with birds and other wildlife during particular times of the year. The downtown area is abundant with gift shops, book stores, clothing shops, galleries, map shops, MillCreek Parkway (walking path), information centers and restaurants. Also downtown are banks and ATM machines. On the southern end of the town is a triple screen indoor theatre, an amusement park, and the Old Spanish Trail Arena, which hosts numerous events throughout the year. On the northern end of the town there is the Colorado River Pedestrian Bridge which links pedestrians and bicyclists to trails north of Moab.

Moab has a variety of restaurants to serve group feasts, if needed. The list includes two Microbreweries with full menu service, Szechuan, Thai, Mexican, Italian, American, and fast food restaurants. There is also the Bar M Chuckwagon that serves dinner on a nightly basis and includes staged gunfights and entertainment, and the Canyonlands By Night ride that is dinner, entertainment and a sound and light show on the Colorado River. Please also utilize Moab's landscapes for an outdoor affair. Several local outfitters have portable kitchens to serve sit down galas or more informal buffets housed under the sky or beneath an event tent.

Moab is home to Castle Creek Winery and Spanish Valley Vineyards and Winery. Both wineries feature wines made from locally grown grapes, both have tasting rooms, tours of the winery and a place to purchase wine. The open hours for the wineries vary, so a call ahead to plan would be wise.

For the adventurous soul Moab is the gateway to the world famous Slickrock Bike Trail, Colorado River Rafting, technical four-wheeling, hiking ranging from very easy to very strenuous, and world class climbing and canyoneering. A collaboration of Licensed Massage Therapists and alternative health practictioners have a plethora of exercises, education, and treatments to add to your business meeting program.

The views from the many vistas and canyons will take your breath away. The terrain in Canyonlands is without a doubt some of the most diverse, picturesque, breathtaking landscape that you will probably ever encounter. Vacationers that are looking for solitude are certainly in the right location. There are many places that one can visit where there will be crowds, but there are many more locations that you can get completely away from the crowds and enjoy the peaceful beauty surrounding you.
