When traveling with kids can be a challenge to find activities the entire family will enjoy. You want to get out and see Moab but you don't want to over do it. Here is a list of some of our kids favorite things in Moab.
Of course there’s also fun to be had right at the condo with Rim Vista's pool, playground, basketball, and tennis courts. Indoors at each condo there is also a pack of Uno cards, along with regular playing cards. One unit (7A2) even has a complete old school video game unit, which is always a hit!
Lions Park is located on the banks of the Colorado River, north of Moab at US191 & UT128. Some large boulders have been placed with unique 5" thick padded flooring around them for kids or adults to test out their climbing skills on. The park also provides access to the Moab Canyon Pathway and the Hwy 128 Path.
Bonus: See if you can find the spring on the other side of UT128 to refill your water bottles.
Rotary Park is beautiful with large cottonwood trees that provide shade to the playgrounds. There are picnic tables and a paved trail to walk or ride. The highlight of this park is the musical playground that kids love to play on and make music. This was our daughters favor place in Moab when she was younger. Rotary Park is located on Mill Creek Drive.
Located just a few miles from our Town Homes is the disc golf course at Old City Park. The course is 18 holes but 9 holes are usually about right when the kids are along. We make up our own rules and everyone is on the same team. One person takes a throw and then we advance to were their disk landed then the next person goes. It is great fun for the kids to go chasing after the frisbee and since we are all on the team everyone is a winner.
Bonus: There is a great snow sledding hill here next to the duck pond.
It hard not to look at the Moab landscape and not envision dinosaurs walking around. Now there are full size dinos at Moab Giants.
Do you want to see the real thing? There are several real dinosaur footprints near by, learn more here.
Cave Spring trail is a great hiking trail kids. The trail consist of an .8 mile loop that goes up and over large rock formation in Canyonlands Nation Park's Needles District. The trail ends at Cave Spring Cowboy Camp. The camp is very interesting for all ages.
Mo Yo Frozen Yogurt
Typically when we visit Moab our sweet tooth gets the better of us and when it does we head to our daughters favorite place for desert, MoYo frozen yogurt shop. Tons of toppings and several frozen yogurt choices available. MoYo is located at 331 N Main Street downtown Moab.
