About Page and Colorado Plateau attractions

Page & Nearby Attractions

Visitors and Page residents enjoy access to enormous natural, cultural, and scientific resources that fuel an active tourism economy.

With about 8,000 residents, Page is located in Coconino County, geographically the largest county in Arizona. This planned community began as a temporary construction camp for workers on the Glen Canyon Dam but grew into a major resort area and progressive community.

Page makes a great home base for exploring the Colorado Plateau and Grand Circle area. More than 3 million people visit here annually, including many from foreign destinations. The area’s mild desert climate affords year-round opportunities to discover Lake Powell and nearby attractions.

The Colorado Plateau has the greatest concentration of national parks in the U.S. It covers about 130,000 miles within western Colorado, northwestern New Mexico, southern and eastern Utah, and northern Arizona. It is known for its geologic history and unique landforms including mesas, domes, hoodoos, fins, narrows, natural bridges, and slot canyons. The Colorado Plateau is home to Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, Arches, Mesa Verde, and Petrified Forest National Park as well as Dinosaur, Hovenweep, Wupatki, Grand Staircase-Escalante, Natural Bridges, Canyons of the Ancients, and Colorado National Monuments, among others!
