Although it is a tiny town of about 500 people, Springdale hosts thousands of visitors every year. Located just outside beautiful Zion National Park, Springdale is the gateway to everything the park has to offer: rugged bike trails, challenging hikes, brilliant wildlife and breathtaking vistas. Go rappelling and rock-climbing along the steep sandstone formations that encompass this beautiful region, or jump on a raft and float your way over the rapids and eddies of the Sevier River. The town’s lodgings and services accommodate travelers on their way to and from discovering the incomparable beauty of Utah.

Shop the best of Springdale for one-of-a-kind keepsakes at one of the many galleries in town. LaFave Gallery is a great place to start, offering upscale gifts of jewelry, paintings, and kinetic sculptures. Pottery and outdoor art including wind chimes and spinners are a specialty at Worthington Gallery. DeZion Gallery features local artists of every medium. When it’s time to dine, head to Bit & Spur for Southwestern favorites, or try Switchback Grille & Trading Company’s fine cuisine.
