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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Grand Canyon National Park (Cape Royal & Navajo Bridge). There's lots more to do: explore the stunning scenery at Antelope Canyon, enjoy some diversion at Gunfighter Canyon, see human ingenuity at work at Glen Canyon Dam Overlook, and explore the striking landscape at Horseshoe Bend.

For where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, read our Page route site .

Newark to Page is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Newark to Page. Traveling from Newark in September, expect nights in Page to be about the same, around 63°F, while days are a bit warmer, around 86°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) to allow time to drive to Williams.

On the 8th (Sun), enjoy some diversion at Big Toy Playground, then identify plant and animal life at Bearizona Wildlife Park, and then examine the collection at Pete's Rt 66 Gas Station Museum. Keep things going the next day: tee off at Elephant Rocks at Williams, get engrossed in the history at Williams Depot, then look for gifts at The Gallery in Williams, and finally do a tasting at Grand Canyon Wine Company.
