What it's Like to Retire in Page

Page, Arizona is a great place for active adults if you love being outdoors and appreciate gorgeous landscape. There are several activities active adults in the area can take advantage of. If you love fishing, Lake Powell is stocked with a variety of diverse fish.

If fishing's not your game, hit the links at Lake Powell National Golf Course. This course got top ratings from Golf Digest.

Lake Powell is full of natural wonders, and there are several tour guide services that can escort you through the gorgeous scenery. For a serene experience on Lake Powell, try sea kyaking with a professional tour guide. They will navigate you through the quiet canyons and share their deep knowledge of the surrounding geology, culture and history. Take a boat tour around Lake Powell and check out the local Navajo culture, or gape at one of the several National Parks in the area like Rainbow Bridge. Camping, traveling in an RV, kyaking, hiking or just a relaxing picnic overlooking the beauty of Lake Powell will help you experience the joy of outdoor recreation.
