The Moab Information Center, right in the heart of town, is the best place to find information on Arches and Canyonlands national parks as well as other destinations in Utah's southeast. It has a wonderful bookstore operated by Canyonlands Natural History Association. The hours vary, but during the busiest part of the tourist season it's open until at least 7 pm, and sometimes later; in winter the center is open a few hours each morning and afternoon.
