Life is elevated in the adventure town of Moab, on the bucket list for every avid mountain biker, rock climber, kayaker or widespread adrenaline junkie. With so much to explore, it can be hard to find the best spots with minimal crowds.
Best Place to Camp: Porcupine Rim
If you’re looking for a more serene campsite with spanning views of the desert, post up at Porcupine Rim. It’s a far trek out of town so you’ll need 4-wheel drive and no intention of using cell service once you get there. High on the mountain, you’ll get incredible morning views like this one. Far away from the typical tourist spots like the golden arches, you’ll have plenty of room for incredible and challenging trails to off-road in your jeep, dune buggy or bike. You might even spot some professional base-jumpers flying from the rocks.
The Swimming Hole: Mill Creek North Fork
What’s a summer trip to Moab without some rock jumping? This swimming hole does get crowded, but it’s a great spot to cool off and challenge your cliff jumping from 10–20 feet.
The Best Burger: Milt’s Diner
It’s the oldest restaurant in Moab and once you go you will understand why the line is always so long. After a long day roaming through the red rocks, a burger, shake and fries from Milt’s hits a homerun. If the line is long outside, go inside and order at the counter and your wait time will be cut in half.
One of the best ways to experience and learn more about a culture is by looking for and picking through the local markets. Depending on the destination, markets can be found in the out-of-the-way nooks and crannies of larger cities or can function as attractions on their own merit.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
One of the greatest sights in the world, the great pyramids of Giza, stands towering in the desert, the imposing stature dwarfing tourists for miles. Visitors to Giza might feel twangs of adventure and exploration, but guests should be warned climbing the pyramids is forbidden.
While your first inclination might be panic when you map out the various appointments and meetings on your upcoming business trip, relax. Trust us, a rental car has you covered.
Pitcairn Island is a remote patch of land between Eastern Island and French Polynesia, and Britain’s only inhabited territory in the Pacific. At only 15 square miles and a population of 50, it doesn’t exactly come to mind as an adventurous tourist destination. However, this tiny island is hiding some incredible opportunities.
