Zion National Park is one of America’s most hidden gems. Nestled in the southeast corner of Utah, deep in the heart of our national parklands, Zion brings in over 3 million visitors each year. The breathtaking views and mild climate also make the region one of the best places to retire in the US.
The park is about 45 minutes east of St. George, UT. With approximately 200,000 residents in the metro area, St. George is one of the fastest-growing real estate markets in the United States. As the city has grown, so has the demand for vacation rentals for transient city visitors and vacationers.
In terms of pure short term rentals, the market competes significantly with RV rentals. Due to strict regulations in the higher density townships, short term rentals have found their way into the outer regions of the cities. This has forced the growth of unique stays such as glamping, which rent for upwards of $200 / night on Airbnb and HomeAway.
