Why We Love It
Springdale, a charming small town residing just outside the borders of Zion National Park, is home to Native American arts and crafts, jewelry, fine arts, and photography. However, what this adventure town is mostly known for is its beautiful sunrises, extreme outdoor activity, and captivating sunsets.
