This little town south of Kanab, Utah on the way to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon has missed out on the tourist crowds because of the lack of nearby sites. Kanab has Zion and Bryce National Parks very close and many motels to accommodate the crowds. And of course the Grand Canyon is 80 miles south.

So what has Fredonia got to do with that you ask.

Police, and low speed limits.

After you have driven through town at the low speed limit and you feel you are past the town the road turns and heads out into the open land of Arizona. But the speed limit sign is still another mile out and they post a patrol car with radar out past the corner where everyone puts their foot back on the gas. That police officer pulls over and writes tickets all day long, and probably at night too. I wasn't in a hurry that day or I would have gotten one too.

Be ultra careful of this area.

Also be careful around Jacob Lake, intersection of routes 67 and 89. Another speed trap where the limit bounces back and forth. You can pay for this one in beautiful Freedonia also.
