Page was literally created by the Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River in 1957. Once home to grazing sheep, Page grew from a remote construction camp to a small city known as the Hub of the Grand Circle: sites nearby include Lake Powell, Grand Canyon, Arches National Monument, Monument Valley, Mesa Verde National Park, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, and Paria Wilderness Area. Never was an area more photographed in all the world!
The city has many features of its own to offer visitors, including museums, a championship golf course, and annual events that draw visitors from all over the world. Food is plenty, eateries ranging from western steaks & BBQ, Italian, Mexican, awesome cafes, Asian, pizza, and plenty of fast food.
