Four Unforgettable Parts of Your Zion Canyon Vacation

The title implies that you have already taken your Zion Canyon vacation and will never forget four special parts of it; however, in this case, I am referring to parts of your trip that you should not forget to add to your Zion vacation.  So, I’m gonna help you out here. You don’t want to miss these four things in your trip itinerary. They’re unforgettable.

Springdale, Utah

At the entrance to Zion Park is the charming town of Springdale, Utah.  Springdale has grown up over the last 100 years to treat you very well. The gift shops are delightful and varied.  You’ll see ornate, local masterpieces from local artists and exquisite imports for young and old. The Springdale restaurants are delicious with American, Mexican, Italian, bistro, and gourmet coffee shops, too.  Traditional recipes handed down by Native Americans and Mormons will please the palate. And award-winning chefs have brought in some very tasty cuisine. Your Zion Canyon vacation will be richer by enjoying Springdale.


Your Zion Canyon vacation would not be as great without experiencing any of the one-of-a-kind hotels in Springdale.  They range from two to three-and-a-half stars. One of the favorites is Cliffrose Lodge and Gardens, near the entrance to Zion.  Its views are spectacular, and the furnishings indulgent. Relax and have a drink in the lounge, or have an outdoor grilling party with family or friends.  Amenities, such as wifi, computer, and charging station for your electric car are complimentary.

The Watchman Villas are a first-class vacation rental for folks who want the at-home feel.  Luxurious furniture and beautiful kitchen appliances make life very nice at the Watchman. Also included is a free shuttle to and from the park to make transportation convenient.

The Hikes of Zion

Zion National park is famous for its great hiking trails.  They range from mild to moderate to strenuous. Families like the short hikes to the Emerald Pools, where even on a hot day, the shade and waters are refreshing cool.  If you really ambitious and fit enough, tackle the hike to Angel’s Landing. About five miles round trip, it climaxes along a narrow ridge where you hold on for dear life to a railing of chains, fixed to the rock wall.  If you suffer from acrophobia, don’t look down. The Narrows takes you through a narrow canyon, part of which is filled at the bottom by the Virgin River. Wear water shoes, and take snacks and water to drink. Be sure to check the weather forecast.  Rain can flood down the narrows quickly and wash you away to demise, so be sure to be prepared so that you have the best Zion canyon vacation possible.

Zion Ponderosa Ranch

The Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort is about a 40-minute drive north of Zion Park but is well worth it.  Active families or couples will enjoy the horseback riding, zip-lining, swimming, shotgun shooting, Jeep touring, canyoneering, mini-golfing, and sleeping in the rustic Cowboy Cabins.  The Ponderosa features good food, good fun, and magnificent scenery. It will enhance your Zion Canyon vacation.
