Moab is a city located in Grand County, Utah. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 4,779. It is the county seat of Grand County. Moab hosts a large number of tourists every year, mostly visitors of the Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, which are located closeby. The town is also a popular base for mountain bikers who come to ride the nearby Slickrock trail.
Moab can be viewed as an acronym for Mormons, Ores, Artists and Bicycles, as these were the happenings in Moab from past to present (this is not, however, how the city was named). City officials asked the United States Government to change the acronym of the Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb (MOAB) because of the similarity of the acronym to the city's name.
In the 1950s Moab became the Uranium Capital of the world after the Geologist Charles Steen found Uranium-ore.
