Glen Canyon Dam is a very unique and worthwhile visit! Located just a mile or two from Page, Az it is easily accessible and is definately worth the 2 minute drive from Page! The visitor center offers a gift shop filled with southwest books and trinkets. And it has information on the building process and history of the dam and town of Page. It has a small theater that shows various documentaries about Glen Canyon Dam. The highlight of course is getting to actually go out onto the dam itself and enter the service elevator which takes you deep into the heart of the Dam. Tour guides explain various features and history as you descend over 200 feet into the canyon. Amazing views from the bottom provide for interesting pictures! They also show you the many turbines which supply power for much of the American west. If you love history, science, arcitecture, or have always wanted to see what a hydroelectric power station looks like, this is for you. The kids especially enjoy the tour! Fees to take the tour are minimal, and parking is free. If you are passing through or are going to make a stop in Page, make this a must see!!!!
