SPARKLING LAKE POWELL’S A STANDOUT FOR WATER SPORTS IN SCENIC CANYON COUNTRY. THE NATION’S SECOND-LARGEST MANMADE LAKE DOMINATES GLEN CANYON NATIONAL RECREATION AREA, BUT THERE ARE ALSO UNFORGETTABLE, LAND-BASED SIGHTS WHERE SAND, SKY, AND WATER MEET.

However long your trip to Page is planned for, go ahead and double it – there’s that much to do. 

Page should have packed up decades ago. See, the town was established in 1957 as a temporary work camp for builders of the Glen Canyon Dam, but the people stayed. And it’s jaw-droppingly easy to see why they set down roots: the spectacular red buttes and mesas set against cobalt skies, capped by 180 miles of Colorado River shoreline. 

For views, it’s hard to beat houseboat digs at Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas. From here, you can cruise the clear blue-green waters on a panoramic boat tour, or rent wakeboards, water skis, paddleboards, or kayaks. An excursion with Colorado Discovery Tour gives you another vantage point from which to view the canyon.

Locals say that until recently, few knew of Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon. But word on their eye-popping beauty has gotten out. These two top-rated attractions are among the most photographed in the Southwest. The trailhead – a sandy incline just off Highway 89 – leads to the lip of Horseshoe Bend, which plunges 1,000 feet to the Colorado River below. The 360-degree views of Paria Plateau and Vermilion Cliffs change with the light; you’ll have lots of fellow travelers at sunrise and sunset, but still have plenty of elbow room. And while you’ll see shutter-bugs lugging tripods and other equipment, you can capture the sensuous, sunlit curves of Antelope Canyon even with your smartphone.
