Spend a full day exploring National Park. Start off at information center located near the entrance of the park. Take a good 30 minutes to learn about the geology and topography of the area. It's a great information center with insightful exhibits.
Then take your car or car rental around the park. Stop at as many monuments as possible. It is a wonderful experience. And make sure you bring your camera - if you don't you will regret it. Here are some Arches you must visit:
- Delicate Arch (furthermost arch)
- Double Arch
- Sand Dune Arch

Other rock formations worth seeing:
- Balanced rock
- Devil's Garden (you'll find the Sand Dune Arch there)

But there is a lot I didn't get to see because I only had a few hours there. So I recommend taking a whole day to visit the park.

Bring:
- Sunscreen
- Hat (hot/sunny)
- Sunglasses (windy/dusty)
- Water (not many places to refill)
- Snacks (not many, if any, places to buy food)
- A car (you'll need a car to explore the whole park)

Address: N Highway 191 Moab, UT 84532
Directions: Once you are in Moab. Follow the signs to the park!
