Springdale: A Great Place to Live!
To anyone who visits Zion National Park, Springdale is the picturesque hub of activity at the mouth of Zion Canyon. It doesn’t take long for people to fall in love with the area, and many wonder what it would be like to live here.
The town of Springdale is located in Washington County, Utah. The last census (2010) showed a full-time population of 529, but it feels much larger than that during the peak of the tourist season. It was originally settled by Mormons in 1862 and remained an isolated farming community until the formation of Zion National Park in 1919. Since that time, Zion has become one of the top 10 most visited national parks in the United States, and Springdale has become a favorite destination for people from all over the world.
Washington County is nestled in the southwestern corner of Utah, and has experienced enormous growth in recent years. The boom started in the 1980’s when retirees began to enjoy its warm weather and gorgeous scenery in large numbers. Northern Utahans found this area to be the perfect escape from long, snowy winters, and Washington County quickly became the un-official golf capital of Utah. More than a dozen spectacular golf courses are located within an hour’s drive of Springdale, and two of its best are found within 30 miles.
Springdale is about 40 miles from St. George, Utah, home of a brand-new airport, Dixie State University, and about 80,000 permanent residents. It’s a 2-hour drive from Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world, so exotic nightlife and world-class shopping is certainly within reach.
