IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GO BOATING
Believe it not, most local residents don't even own a boat. You can still enjoy Lake Powell without one. There are a number of beaches
you can drive to and swim, plus there are some great fishing areas from the shore.
There are plenty of activities that don't involve the water. Every trip should include a free tour of the Glen Canyon Dam.
Plan on at least an hour, and realize that sometimes the Visitor Center is closed for security reasons. This is an excellent activity for families with children. There is more information posted at:
A must for photographers is a trip to Antelope Canyon. This surreal formation will inspire wonder and awe. For more
information see www.canyon-country.com/lakepowell/tours.htm.
While staying in Page, you'll be within easy driving distance of Zion National Park (my favorite park and well worth the trip), Bryce
Canyon (nice for families), Monument Valley (good day trip, but tough to get overnight reservations) and the Grand Canyon (plan on one or two days only). Carve out a few days for at least one side trip.
At night, take in a first-run movie at the Mesa Theatre, or try a concert, dining and dancing in Page. During the summer season, the
City of Page often hosts Native American dancers on the lawn of City Hall.
If you haven't been in the area before, or you would like help planning your itinerary, drop me an email. Give me an idea of you budget (looking to have a great time
or need to keep it very reasonable), the time of year you plan on visiting, the ages and interests of those in your party and what you really want to see or do. If you don't have any ideas, write me anyway.
