Planning our vacation west this summer to arizona, utah, and colorado. After reading and researching alot most of our stops have been pretty easy to plan in terms of deciding what to do. Page is little different for us as there looks like alot to do in the area but our stay is quite short (2 nights)

For those with experience in the area - what would you recommend to a first timer to Page with only 2 days?

Slot canyons are a must in Page. Be sure to get reservations and try for the photo tour on the upper canyon. The lower canyon is self tour.

We just passed thru Page and stopped to see the huge dam that created Lake Powell...It's only 16 feet shorter than Hoover Dam...Worth an hour of your time

Plan on "Antelope Canyon" @ 12: 00 noon, (use a guided tour and ride from downtown Page) that is when the sun shines down onto the floor of that canyon, try and find a way out to "Horseshoe Bend" , this is a walk over to the edge of the river below the dam (the upper most) part of the Grand Canyon.


My feet are fine as long as they are traveling.

I recommend both Upper & Lower Antelope Canyons. For good photographs, you need a tripod. Horseshoe Bend is another "must see". Near Page, you can find North Coyote Buttes (home of The Wave), which requires a permit, Wirepass and Buckskin Gulch (slot canyons), Cottonwood Canyon (scenic drive), Paria Valley (scenic drive), Rimrock Hoodoos, Stud Horse Point, overlooks of Lake Powell, etc, etc. In other words, two days isn't nearly long enough for this area. Check out the Arizona and Utah sections of my photo gallery for ideas.

AS mentioned , Antelope Canyon is a great little slot canyon (located on Navaho land,so there is a fee charged). Be sure to take water & sunscreen & camera. Lake Powell provides a great place to rent a boat and go exploring upriver. If you head south toward Flagstaff and take 89A, you can stop at the Navaho bridge over Marble Canyon. That is where the rafts put in at Lees Ferry nearby to float down the Colorado River. Also, a long day trip would be to drive over to Monument Valley (where a number of western movies were filmed). Take your pick and enjoy time at each site you choose to visit. P.S. At night, you might just see something if you check out the sky (lots of stars,airplanes, ufo's). Haave a great trip.

I've read quite a bit about antelope canyon and some of the feedback I've read is to steer clear as it's quite busy with lots of yours, shoulder to shoulder people and being rushed.

Boat rentals sound good, any recommendations on rentals and/or tours

thanks in advance

Upper Antelope is quite popular. I went in March, so it wasn't crowded. Lower Antelope is less crowded, but has more interesting patterns (IMO). Canyon X is even less crowded.

There is a boat tour to see Rainbow Bridge. Was once a 1/2 day tour. If the lake level is still down, the boat docks about 1-2 miles from the arch and you hike there and back to the boat. It is a full day tour then.

If you will be in town on June 13 & 14, there will be offroad racing across from WalMart. Motorcycles, Quads, UTV's, China Lites, and Trophy Karts with competitors aged 4 yrs and up.

This is really good advice.
