July and August are the super HOT months...still OK to go, but just bring a TON of H2O.
I'd avoid Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend...way too crazy out there. You'll be waiting behind 10M jeeps and bikers.
Check out the Kane Creek and Poison Spider to Gold Bar Rim rides. Pretty spectacular!

Moab is great on Memorial Weekend. We go every year and we've always had a blast. It is crowded but that just adds to the fun. We never get backed up on the bikes. You just go around (politely of course) and continue your ride. Plus you can stop and watch the Jeeps climb. They are 20 deep sometimes waiting to get up a spot. I've never had a problem with them letting us by.
It is a little warmer than March / April but not as nasty as July / Aug. I highly recommend it as a Moab weekend getaway. We'll be there Memorial Weekend. Anyone else?

So you're heading out that way, eh? Keep me posted...as I'll surely get over my disdain for busy commutes on I70 and possibly come out to join you. Do you normally camp or get a room? We're campers most of the time...although with the little 'un, we may not be this year again. She'll be 14 months then...so I suppose we'll be back to camping again (although that mostly depends on the boss lady).

We always stay at the Bowen Motel. They have a room for us specially reserved. Definately need the pool, AC and shower

...unless you are trying to impress a young lady friend...then opt for the nicer accomodations..

You must be much younger than me. My body just can't stand the camping any more after 50-75 miles of Moab. Give me a hot-tub, a few beers, and an air-conditioned suite! After-all it's supposed to be a vacation, right?
