The doorstep community to Zion National Park
and other incredible destinations in scenic Southern Utah, Springdale is a quaint, art-inspired community that is open year round and serves as an ideal base camp for visiting Zion National Park and other area national parks and monuments such as Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks.
Springdale is home to first-class motels and lodges, exceptional restaurants, spectacular art galleries, and unique gift shops. The Bit and Spur is one of the town’s top hangouts, boasting southern Utah’s largest selection of micro-brews in a friendly atmosphere. Majestic View Lodge Steakhouse and Saloon offers dining with a view, providing spectacular panoramas of Zion from its large windows.
The town hosts one of Southern Utah’s most unique annual events, a St. Patrick’s Day festival that includes a parade and the world’s largest green Jell-o sculpture contest. During the event, many of the town’s eateries serve green drinks and cuisine. Another unique aspect of Springdale is its distinction as the smallest town in Utah with a public transportation system when the town loop of the Zion National Park shuttle system operates, from April to October.
Several outfitters in Springdale offer bicycle tours, canyoneering excursions, rock climbing adventures and guided hikes down one of Zion National Park’s most popular hikes, the Narrows of the Virgin River. Zion Outback Safaris is the only outfitter in town that provides jeep tours into the area’s unparalleled natural scenery.
