Tourists come year round to visit Page, Arizona. Some come for the uniqueness of Antelope Canyon while others seek out Lake Powell for a relaxing getaway. What some don’t realize when taking this trip though is that you can visit for just a day and see many points of interest.
Just west of the Navajo Bride Interpretive Center is beautiful Lees Ferry. Sitting at the base of Marble Canyon, Lees Ferry is an extremely popular attraction for fly fisherman and other anglers as it is known as “The World’s Largest Spring Creek.” The Colorado River here is filled with wild rainbow trout and Lees Ferry reportedly had a great season for new fish spawning for this upcoming Spring and Summer season.
While fishermen work below catching trout, high above Lees Ferry is the Horseshoe Bend Overlook, one of the most popular photography spots in the world. This horseshoe-shaped meander is five miles to the south of Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell and lies within the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. So take a quick detour from US Route 89 and take a #MyNatureSelfie when you see this spectacular view at Horseshoe Bend.
Upper Antelope Canyon Tour
The tour in Upper Antelope Canyon is a highly popular one due to the highly unique rock formations of Upper Antelope Canyon. After millions of years of erosion from water and wind, the beautiful red and pink Navajo sandstone has formed into one of the most astonishing sites in the world. This spot is a photographer’s dream and your tour guide will help you grab a spot in the canyon to get your perfect shot.
You’ve gone through Lees Ferry made your way over to Horseshoe Bend and even took a tour through Antelope Canyon, now it’s time to make your way to Antelope Point Marina at Lake Powell and relax a bit. Head to the marina and down the main ramp to one of the largest floating restaurants, Ja’di’To’oh Restaurant.

Any of our staff members at Lake Powell can help you can a small watercraft rental set up before you arrive at the arena so that it is ready to go once you arrive. From there feel free to explore all of the water accessible ways on Lake Powell and take in the gorgeous views.

While you are on the Lake, head north to the courtesy dock that is available for short-term docking while you make your two mile hike to Rainbow Bridge.
