Presidents' Weekend and Valentines Day Moab

                           Presidents' Weekend and Valentines Day all on one weekend this 2014.
  • Three National Park Fee Free days, February 15, 16, & 17. Enjoy a full day each in Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park.
  • Moonlight bicycle ride in Dead Horse Point State Park on February 15th. Be amazed by the brilliance of a full moon lighting the way on a cloudless night.
  • At Historic Star Hall to enjoy the Moab Community Theater players’ production, “Almost, Maine.” It will play at 7 PM February 13, 14, & 15. 

Moab Backcountry Trail Rides serves visitors throughout the winter. Make reservations to experience the towering red walls from the saddle, like John Wayne in the 1961 film, “Comencharos”. The Moab Information Center has a free pamphlet listing movies filmed in Moab. Take a drive to the movie sites; make it a scavenger hunt of sorts. Or download the pamphlet in advance of an arrival to watch films with Moab backdrops to get excited about a jaunt to Moab. Soon to be released in 2014: “Need for Speed” and “Transformer 4”, both have scenes shot in Moab.
