sunset in Page area

We will be driving to Page from Bryce on a wednesday in mid august, after arches and torrey. We will leave Bryce, I imagine after lunch soI figure, with stops (suggestions anyone?) we will arrive in Page late afternoon/dinner time. We have three nights reserved before heading to South rim on sat. morning. I think I will reserve the morning float trip for Friday. Is there a company that is preferred?. we are a party of 4. Since we are arriving at the end of the day on wednesday, most likely tired (sunrise at Bryce that morning) we thought it would be nice to find a good spot for sunset. I'm getting a bit overloaded with info so sorry if I'm asking repetitive questions. I'm a little confused. Can we get to places like horseshoe bend and antelope canyon on our own or do we have to take a tour? Is the only way to rainbow bridge by boat tour? we are staying at the DaysInn. Maybe, when we arrive in town we will just want to find a good patio with a good drink for sunset? open to any suggestions.

Hi

Coming from Bryce you may try Rocking V in Kanab. for lunch. That's an excellent place.

A good place for sunset is Wah Weap overlook just west of Page off us89

Bryce to Page is just a 3 hours drive and you'll gain one hour because Az does not observe daylight saving time. (except for the Navajo Nation)

The only outfitter for the Colorado raft is www.raftthecanyon.com

Horseshoe bend is not good for sunset. You can walk to it on your own. No tours. It's not a long hike (maybe 15-20 minutes to the rim) but it's a sandy stretch and no shade. Bring water, wear sturdy shoes, slop on sunscreen and slap on a hat.

The best way to get to Rainbow Bridge is by boat.

You can get to Antelope Upper Canyon and wait for the next tour. Can be very busy in august. There are tours by Tsosie, Ekis and Overlander. There offices are in Page. Lower is less crowded and you just can drive to the parkinglot and take a tour from there. Tours to Antelope canyon always are guided. If you want to take a tour to Rainbow Bridge and/or the Colorado Riverraft please make reservations.

We like a drink at the patio of Dam Bar & Grille but no sunset views here.

We were recently in Page (early June) and we made reservations at the Rainbow Room at the Lake Powell Resort for dinner. The dining room has large glass windows from which we watched a beautiful sunset and enjoyed a declicious meal. We stayed at Days Inn also....the drive to Lake Powell was about 4 to 5 miles from the hotel. On the way you will pass Glen Canyon Dam....where we stopped to take pictures of the dam and Lake Powell. We did the Colorado float trip....try to get the morning trip when you make reservations. You will not be disappointed....the float trip was the highlite of our vacation.

If I were to pick a place for sunset at Page, it would be as above in the Rainbow Room at the Lake Powell Resort or at the restaurant at Antelope Marina. Otherwise, somewhere on the west side of the mesa that Page sits on ..... there's a trail around the mesa accessible at the end of many streets. .....Or out on the lake in a boat.

By visiting more National Parks it's a good idea to buy the America the Beautiful pass valid for a year for car and passengers (read terms). The pass also includes entrance to Glen Canyon NRA where Lake Powell Resort (west of Page) and Antelope Point (east of Page) are.

Wahweap Overlook is a nice place for sunset - on the day of the eclipse in May it was so crowded they wouldn't let any more peole get to it. You drive down to the dam (hwy 89), over the bridge and on a bit till you see the turnoff to the right. it's the second turnoff, the first one goes into the park and to the lake/marina, the second to the overlook on top of a knoll - fantastic views of rivers, rocks and marina
