Red Rock Inn at Zion National Park

Red Rock Inn  Located in Springdale, Utah at the southern entrance to Zion National Park

I’m guilty of just neglecting to get back and write about this and there is no excuse since this is the most delightful B&B Inn we have stayed in over the last five years.

Because the town of Springdale sits in a narrow canyon as you leave Zion National Park there really is only Zion Park Blvd. for a couple of miles thru town. This is partly a blessing as every where you look are the stunning red rock walls towering above you. Unfortunately this also creates major traffic tie-ups as cars enter and exit the park down this two-lane street (TRAFFIC INFORMATION HERE). In season afternoon traffic trying to enter the park virtually comes to a standstill.

On our visit we had driven into Zion thru the northeast entrance and after a day in the park we exited at the south end and stayed at the Red Rock Inn. From there we just walked around the town which is very convenient from the inn. The town is nice to stroll through with great shops, cafes and restaurants. After that the Zion NPS shuttle is the easiest way to get back to the park and explore the southern trails with no wasted time trying to find a parking space. The Inn is located only about a mile from the park entrance if you are inclined to hike.

The Red Rock Inn sits in a beautiful setting with tastefully decorated, spotless rooms. The Inn is operated by Trevor and Sharon and you couldn’t ask for more attentive hosts who can offer great tips on what to see in the park or where to eat nearby. Your stay also includes a great full breakfast at Oscars Cafe only a short walk up the boulevard.

If you are looking for a getaway weekend or are planning a grand tour of the Utah parks you really can’t do any better than a stay at The Red Rock Inn.

Wahoo’s Bistro Patio Bermuda

Bermuda is probably one of the most expensive islands we’ve spent time on as well as one of the most beautiful. Off season hotels average above $200 to $300 a night and food is also pretty pricey.

One afternoon we took a bus out to St. George just for a look around. St. George is the town on the far eastern tip of the islands and a great place to walk around. After checking out menus in a number of restaurants around town we decided on Wahoo’s. The entrance is located at 36 Water Street just two blocks from the main bus stop and four blocks from the ferry dock. The back patio is the place to sit as it overlooks St. George’s Harbour.

This Bistro is popular with locals and gets consistently high marks with online revieerss. Alfed is the owner and works hard to make you feel welcome. The staff is friendly and efficient and the Picasso Mahi Mahi and Wahoo nuggets come highly recommended by the locals. For Bermuda the prices are moderate, the atmosphere is great and the back patio is the place to sit and enjoy the view and breeze.

All in all we highly recommend Wahoo’s Bistro & Patio.
