A couple hours southeast of Salt Lake City, this desert town is jam-packed with gorgeous scenery and outdoor activities. Get your adventure started when you book a vacation rental with a pool near Moab, Utah. This area is characterized by deep canyons carved by the Colorado River, multi-colored sandstone cliffs, and unbelievably impressive arches that contrast against the blue sky. With so many parks nearby - Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Dead Horse State Park - you can find plenty of hiking trails with all lengths and levels of difficulty. Take Grandstaff Trailhead or Fishers Tower Trail, and bring along some climbing rope and harness for some rappelling, canyoneering, and rock climbing. Go rafting down the Colorado River, then return back to your vacation rental to lounge by the pool.
