When planning a visit to Lake Powell, don’t forget about the surrounding areas. Hop out of the boat and take any one of the numerous hiking trails. The Rainbow Bridge Trail is a must see. This is the ideal location for a family photo to commemorate a Lake Powell vacation. Nearby Antelope Canyon is another opportunity to see amazing rock formations and to get pictures that everyone will be jealous of. These activities give families an opportunity to take a break from the rented houseboat and if necessary, pick up some supplies.
