Springdale

There's a bend in the road just past Rockville where early glimpses of Zion National Park's famous red rock monoliths become a constant horizon. The soaring canyon walls of Zion are Springdale's postcard backdrop. Here, every sunrise is a natural phenomenon of shadows falling away like curtains and multicolored sandstone coming alive before your eyes. At dusk, the icons of Zion glow with the lingering light then yield the spotlight to the Milky Way. Zion National Park sets the bar high for unforgettable landscapes and outdoor adventure. It takes a special town to step up to that standard. Welcome to Springdale, Utah.
 
As the gateway to scenery and adventure, Springdale is a little different than the other towns near Zion National Park. The charming town of 500 permanent residents welcomes a couple million visitors from all over the world to their spectacular corner of southwest Utah — though happily spread out across the year, primarily during the spring through fall.
Springdale, Utah is also home to several beautiful galleries of fine art, photography, Native art and craft, jewelry and local gems and minerals. Both the David J. West Gallery and Fatali feature Zion National Park in spectacular light and from perspectives that truly capture the canyon's majesty.
 
But Springdale is an adventure town at heart. As the gateway to Zion National Park and nestled along the North Fork of the Virgin River, Springdale is an ideal place to get outfitted for adventure not only in Zion, but to numerous other parks, monuments, and recreation areas of the western Colorado Plateau and desert southwest.
  • Springdale is located just outside Zion National Park and is the gateway to everything the park has to offer. Within the town's location are state and city parks, golf areas, theaters, and museums.

Local Highlights

Zion National Park
If it isn't abundantly obvious, Zion National Park is the top attraction in Springdale, and you can even grab the park's multipassenger shuttle from several stops in the town to avoid traffic congestion at the park's entrance. Also don't miss the Zion-Mt. Carmel scenic drive. The distinctive red asphalt leads to the narrow 1.1-mile tunnel, a triumph of 1920s engineering, the trailhead to the Canyon Overlook and further east to a junction with historic U.S. 89.
Tubing the Virgin River
During the peak heat of summer, hit up local outfitters like Zion Adventure and Zion Outfitter for the opportunity to float the Virgin River. See the town's iconic backdrop from a different angle, floating directly behind the town and through serene and remote-feeling stretches of the river. Spring runoff means a wilder river, and not typically suitable for younger children.
Grafton Ghost Town
Trouble plagued the young town of Grafton in the middle of the 19th century but the surviving ghost town was immortalized in the motion picture Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
Zion Canyon and Bumbleberry Theater
"Zion-Treasure of The Gods," a dramatic, giant large screen film, is shown daily in a 500-seat theater near the mouth of Zion Canyon. The theatre's screen is the largest in Utah and one of the largest in the world measuring 60 feet high and 82 feet across. (435) 772-2400 www.zioncanyontheatre.com. Adjacent to the Bumbleberry Restaurant and one mile from the entrance to Zion National Park, the Bumbleberry Inn Playhouse features Branson-style shows.
