Page, Arizona – Where Great Views Meet Great Food

by JonPharr

For adventurers 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.

Page is best known as being home to some of the most photogenic spots in the world. Horseshoe Bend is one of the most iconic landmarks of the Southwest and Arizona. Located in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, this site offers breathtaking views of the Colorado River flowing around a sandstone canyon. The trail to the overlook is only a 10 minute drive from uptown Page and is a 1.5-mile round trip which is family-friendly and welcomes wheelchairs, strollers, and leashed dogs. The relatively flat, packed dirt trail takes about 20 minutes to hike each way, with a section of the overlook fenced for safety. Half-day and overnight kayaking trips are also available if you want to paddle around the base of Horseshoe Bend and create unforgettable memories.

Page is also home to several slot canyons, including the world-famous Antelope Canyon. Nestled in the heart of the Grand Circle, these stunning natural wonders have been carved over millions of years by wind and water, creating a maze of narrow and twisting passages waiting for your exploration. The slot canyons range in difficulty from family-friendly to strenuous, and tour companies offer a wide variety of tour experiences including hour-long tours, private photography sessions, and half day adventures.

When it’s time to shake the dust off your boots from all the desert fun, Lake Powell is where you want to be. With over 2,000 miles of shoreline and 96 major canyons, the amount of recreational opportunities on Lake Powell are endless. You can rent a paddleboard, powerboat, and even a houseboat or simply zip around for a while on the back of a jet ski. Wahweap Swim Beach has incredible views of Page’s iconic horizon and is where you can relax and soak up the sun on the shore or have a fun filled beach day. Guided boat tours of Lake Powell are available year round and provide scenic laid back trips to Antelope Canyon, Navajo Canyon, and Rainbow Bridge National Monument.

After all your adventures, be sure to make it back to Page’s downtown. Enjoy a local tap at the Grand Canyon Brewery, savory street tacos, or a movie in the park. Majority of the eateries are owned by local families where you can taste authentic cultural cuisine. From sushi inside a retired houseboat at New York Teriyaki to elevated southwestern dining at Rimview Terrace, Page can satisfy all taste buds. If you’re looking for the best value for your bucks, Red Heritage Indigenous Entertainment Hall offers a delicious southwestern dinner accompanied by a colorful and lively cultural show which includes traditional dances, weaving demonstrations, and Navajo storytelling by local residents.
