For globe-trotters looking to venture beyond the Grand Canyon, there’s a place that holds its own list of must-see and must-experience destinations: Page, Arizona.
With Lake Powell and the Colorado River on its doorstep, Page puts you right at the heart of unparalleled outdoor beauty, offering a unique exploration of Arizona. Page is perhaps best known as being home to one of the most Instagrammable spots in the world: Horseshoe Bend, featuring a shimmering blue u-shaped ribbon of the Colorado River cutting through red-rock canyon cliffs. Less known is the 11-mile continuous Rim Trail in Page, a hike that provides more than enough photo-ops with views of red rocks, blue water, and beautiful wild flowers.
There’s more to love about Page if you’re looking for that perfect photo. The area is home to a network of slot canyons, narrow trails that wind their way through wildly wavy rock formations. The most popular is Lower and Upper Antelope Canyon. Another excellent slot canyon trail is called Buckskin Gulch and provides one of the southwest’s longest and deepest canyon experiences.
When it’s time to shake the dust off your boots from all the outdoor fun, Lake Powell is where you want to be. Created when the Glen Canyon Dam was formed, Lake Powell is over 186 miles long and offers over 2,000 miles of shoreline, surrounded by beautiful canyon structures. The best way to see the Lake is by watercraft. Rent a kayak, powerboat, pontoon boat, or even a houseboat.
Or simply zip around for a while on the back of a Jet Ski. How about a float trip down the Colorado River? Half-day trips from Page to Lee’s Ferry are available through Wilderness Adventure Company. Wind down from your explorations by finding the perfect spot to enjoy the lake and go for a swim.
Want even more? Make Page your Basecamp and make day trips to the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Zion National Park, and Bryce National Park. New in 2022! Come to Page to experience the world-famous Wave. The Wave is the premier photographic destination in the southwest. Located in Coyote Buttes, it is just a 30-minute drive from Page.
After all your adventures, be sure to make it back to Page’s downtown. Enjoy a beer at the new Grand Canyon Brewery, elevated dining at Rim View Terrace, or a movie in the park. With over 20 hotels to accommodate you and your family, from affordable stays for the whole family to luxurious nights of spoiling yourself, Page’s hotels have something for everyone. Page is home to many mom-and-pop family-owned small businesses. From our one-of-a-kind donut shop to the Sugar Factory, your family will love their time in Page, Arizona.
When making your Arizona itinerary, bookmark Page as your top destination. The best time to visit is Spring, Summer, and Fall!
