It’s a great time of year to take a Moab vacation! The beautiful spring weather makes it very enjoyable to explore Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. While the sun is moving higher in the sky, daytime temperatures are still very comfortable.
When planning a Moab vacation it’s important to book your lodging far in advance. This is especially important during the peak times from mid March until mid-June. Also, September and October tend to be fairly busy, too.
If you would like to take a Moab vacation with nice weather and fewer crowds consider the month of November. The weather is a little bit cooler and the days a bit shorter. But, the low angle of the sun makes for brilliant colors in the red rock scenery. Also, nightly rates tend to be lower during November.
Our condo in Moab comes with a fully outfitted kitchen with everything you need. In addition to the complete set of cookware you will find a nice variety of spices. The City Market is located on the south end of town. So, it’s only about 5 to 7 minutes to get from the condo to the store.
This supermarket has everything you could want to make delicious meals. There is also a full service deli and bakery. The deli makes great sandwiches and has a variety of side dishes to complement any meal. Plus the selection of imported cheeses will give you many wonderful choices to consider.
As the days get longer and warmer make sure you bring plenty of water wherever you go. These 2 national parks do not have the kinds of services you are going to find in places like Yosemite or Yellowstone. It’s best to be self-contained for your food and beverage needs. We recommend that you put a sleeping bag or blanket over your cooler to prevent the ice from melting quickly.
Enjoy your Moab vacation and be sure to take lots of photos!
