Page, Arizona, gateway to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and the Navajo Nation, sits atop Manson Mesa overlooking Lake Powell. The spectacular lake - the second-largest manmade lake in the United States - extends more than 180 miles up the Colorado River, providing access to 96 major scenic canyons and all the water sports, fishing, kayaking, houseboating and camping you could imagine. Page has magnificent views in all directions, with Lake Powell and the Kaparowitz Plateau to the north, the Vermillion Cliffs to the west, Navajo Mountain to the east and the towering red buttes and mesas of Navajo Sandstone to the south. The bustling town, established in 1957 as a work camp for the builders of Glen Canyon Dam, has developed into a center for energy production, regional health services and education. Tucked away from the rest of the state, the town's character has built a populace that knows how to "make your own fun," as well as and a caring community that's great for visiting or raising kids.
