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.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Sat): enjoy some diversion at Gunfighter Canyon, take in the dramatic natural features at Horseshoe Bend, then explore the stunning scenery at Antelope Canyon, and finally hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour. On your second day here, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour and then surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Page trip itinerary maker website .
