Springdale is located in southern Utah, just outside the boundaries of the wondrous Zion National Park. Springdale vacation rentals grant you access to all kinds of outdoor sports, from fishing to boating. Springdale weather is mild enough to let you stay active all year long, making it perfect for trekking your way through some of nature’s spectacular sights.

For a more relaxed day, spend down time at one of the local art galleries.

Things to do

Springdale is park central for southern Utah

Springdale vacation rentals make a great base camp for your southern Utah vacation. Springdale attractions include several national parks, monuments, and forests, which are all a short drive away. Zion National Park is closest and features massive sandstone cliffs and unique array of wildlife. Bryce Canyon has the largest collection of hoodoos in the world. Visit Sand Hollow State Park, where you can boat, fish, and ride the dunes of Sand Mountain. Families will be enthralled by the Rosenbruch Wildlife Museum, an all-natural habitat exhibiting wildlife from Africa, South America, Asia, and North America.

Activate your competitive drive in Springdale

Afterwards, attack an exhilarating rock climb, mountain bike on Gooseberry Mesa, or fly with the birds on a thrilling helicopter tour. For more fun that the entire family can enjoy, try cooling off in the Virgin River on a tube float. You can also hike the Canyon Overlook Trail for outstanding views of Zion landmarks.
