Coming to Moab

Moab is a small town of about 10,000. Sitting at an altitude of 4000’, it’s a four-season destination: Winters bring snow, but are mild, fall & Spring are exquisite, and the summers are hot, but dry.

Pack Creek is located about 15 miles south of town and up another 2000’, which means a welcome 8 degrees cooler come summer. Which is why writer and environmentalist Edward Abbey spent his summers at the Pack Creek Ranch instead of in Tucson, writing his seminal work Desert Solitaire.



The Ranch and its environs offer a variety of accommodations, from simple cabins to well-appointed homes. For rates and availability at Pack Creek, Call:

The Area

Moab is an outdoor paradise, a desert mecca for mountain biking, white-water rafting, jeeping and hiking and a premier southwest base for adventure and vacation pursuits. In the last several years, it’s come into its own as a cultural destination as well.

Red Cliffs Lodge overlooking the Colorado River in the shadow of monumental sandstone mesas, has begun hosting business and educational conferences, and the Moab Music Festival has become a world-renowned event.

In town, The Center Cafe offers five-star fine dining. Still, Moab stays true to its roots, and come April, the town fills every one of its 2,000 hotel rooms with four-wheelers from all over the world for the annual Jeep Safari. We like to boast that we’re centrally located--6 hours from Vegas, 6 hours from Denver and 8 hours from Santa Fe!

 


Filming


Moab's scenery keeps drawing filmmakers back. Over 40 theatrical movies have been shot in and around the area, from Stagecoach to Thelma and Louise. Arches and Canyonlands National Parks are just outside town, Monument Valley, made famous by John Ford, is less than 4 hours away, and surrounding the town are over a million acres of wilderness, parks, and BLM and National Forest lands.

The Moab to Monument Valley Film Commission, the oldest film commission in the country, keeps a database of local professionals and will accommodate permitting, location scouting, and special shooting requirements.
