Horseshoe Bend

Day 7

Three more Arizona road trip wonders

Amongst the red rocks lies a small oasis of water known as Lake Powell. The lake encircles beautiful rock formations, sandstone cliffs and even beaches. Lake Powell differs from Utah’s other wonders in that it is man-made, but this doesn’t detract from its beauty. The best way to see the lake is on the water itself. You can hire a boat or take a guided boat trip from the Lake Powell Marina. Once you’re back on dry land, why not head to Horseshoe Bend and watch the sunset on the horizon behind this iconic (and free) road trip attraction.
