Originally little more than a simple camp constructed to house workers who built a nearby dam on the Colorado River, Page is now a popular stop for travelers preparing a trip to Arizona's canyon country.
On the 29th (Sat), enjoy some diversion at Gunfighter Canyon, then explore the stunning scenery at Antelope Canyon, and then capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour. Keep things going the next day: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour and then take in the dramatic natural features at Horseshoe Bend.
