Looking for a relaxing place to spend your vacation in Southern Utah? From cozy, intimate condos to luxury vacation homes in our upscale Paradise Village at Zion community, you'll find a quiet retreat within easy reach of fantastic national parks and unforgettable outdoor adventures here in Santa Clara.
Our Santa Clara vacation rentals are tucked away only six miles from the vibrant art scene of St. George and just over 20 miles from family-friendly Hurricane and beautiful Sand Hollow State Park. Sitting roughly 13 miles from the Arizona border, this is the perfect place to stay to explore the pristine, breathtaking scenery of Utah's Zion National Park, only 45 miles away. Red Cliffs Desert Reserve offers excellent nature at a closer distance of only 15 miles.
Visit Heritage Square, where plaques bearing the names of Santa Clara's forefathers line a green space with a fountain, making these a wonderful space for weddings (proper booking required). Stop by the Jacob Hamblin House, a pioneer-era home circa 1862, and the City Arboretum with its desert and wetland gardens. Archie Gubler Park is a local favorite, with a splash pad for kids and their parents to enjoy during the hottest Utah days, a play area for the little ones, and sports courts like sand volleyball, softball, and soccer (reservations may be required). Plenty of walking trails make this a great place to get some exercise, and the green space is perfect for picnics.
Santa Clara shares its city limits with St. George, making it easy to access the larger town's rich cultural epicenter, including the Tuachan Amphitheater, several museums, historic walking tours, and art exhibits in both galleries and out on the street. Visit Ancestor Square for shopping, gallery-hopping, and eateries. Be sure to check out one of St. George's many public parks like Pioneer Park, where guests can hike the famous Sugarloaf or squeeze through a slot canyon, or the Red Hills Desert Garden with displays of native plants and endangered fish.
Southern Utah is home to wonderful beauty and desert landscapes that never fail to inspire awe. Just 45 minutes away, the majesty of Zion National Park may call to you to explore nearly 150,000 acres of meandering canyons, rugged cliffsides, and high plateaus in this dramatic and protected wilderness. Step into the Virgin River and try to imagine how it carved the land over millions of years. If you're a climber, this will be your paradise - you will find epic routes here, and you might never want to leave. If you've never climbed before and think it looks like fun, you can sign up for a class with a guide!
Nearer to Santa Clara, only 15 miles away, is the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve - a gorgeous, 62,000 acres devoted to the conservation of the Mojave Desert Tortoise, with open spaces, rugged mountain peaks, and abundant wildlife. Stop in at the visitor center to learn about the history of the area and the diverse ecosystem, then hit the trails to explore on foot or by mountain bike, and experience the beauty first-hand for yourself. Be sure to wear adequate footwear, clothing, and bring plenty of water - it gets hot out here!
