Moab, Utah, has a lot of offer in the way of adventure besides the National Park! You can take Hummer tours, rent ATV's, go canyoneering, whitewater rafting, etc. Big kid paradise!
We went on a Hummer Sunset tour which was basically rock crawling over petrified dunes, in a big Hummer.
He stopped a couple of times to let us get out and check out dinosaur footprints, take pictures, and just enjoy the view.
We didn't really see the sunset but got a good view of the rain in the distance.
The kids' favorite thing we did was rent these ATV's for 2 hours - I felt like I had been on a roller coaster the whole time. Pretty intense!

Get me outta this helmet!
We also drove over to Canyonlands National Park, about 30 min. away. It's basically like the Grand Canyon with no hotels and a lot less people. Our kids loved it because it was after a rainstorm and we had the place to ourselves!
So many fantastic picture opportunities! The boys up high and me down low...
In our Moab t-shirts...
We took a 1 mile rim walk which as you can see could be pretty scary
since there aren't many barriers....
I loved this area and would go back in a heartbeat and spend more time in both parks! Moab itself is very small with a few restaurants and motels and that's what made it charming to me.
