Discover 'the other Southern Utah'

The title of this post comes from this St George Magazine article, which describes recreational opportunities in the Moab area.

I found it interesting because St George and Moab compete somewhat for the travelers. Both are very popular tourist spots with great recreational opportunities.

St George is in SW Utah and is the gateway to Zion National Park. It is surrounded by state parks. It's mild weather make it a year-round destination for golfers, hikers, bikers and other enthusiasts.

Moab is in SE Utah. It is the gateway to Arches and Canyonlands national parks, the Colorado River, Dead Horse Point State Park and numerous other attractions.

Travelers usually need to choose east or west, it is difficult to take in both during one trip.

The article was written mostly for St George residents, to give them ideas about travel to the other edge of the state.

Read it, if you would like to see a St George guy's take on Moab.
