What people say

"Lake Powell is located on the border of Utah and Arizona. If you have a few hours here, definitely rent a kayak and go explore the Lower Antelope Canyon. The kayak ride is super fun and about 3 miles one way. Make sure you have enough water and snacks since there is nothing around. Ideally, get there in the morning before it gets busy. On the way back from the canyon, the water does get a bit rough due to all the boats passing by, so if you are sensitive to motion sickness take some Dramamine. Once you arrive at Antelope canyon (super easy to get to), you will hike for about an hour to reach the amazing rock formations (see in the photos)."

"Lake Powell is a huge lake between Arizona and Utah. It was made by a dam called Glen Canyon Dam. The water is super clear and blue, and there are tall red rock cliffs all around. The lake is massive, stretching 186 miles with over 1,900 miles of shoreline. You can do lots of fun stuff there like boating, fishing, and kayaking. It's in a pretty place called Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, making Lake Powell a top spot for outdoor fun in the desert!"
"Suggestion from The Discoverer. Often seen in movies. Popular for houseboats. "
