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.
Get in touch with nature at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Antelope Canyon. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Rainbow Bridge National Monument and Glen Canyon Dam Overlook. There's still lots to do: get interesting insight from Tours, explore the activities along Lake Powell, explore the striking landscape at Horseshoe Bend, and enjoy some diversion at Gunfighter Canyon.

To find photos and other tourist information, refer to the Page trip planning website.

Charlotte to Page is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and shuttle.
