The next day we went to a couple areas in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Horseshoe Bend is just a few miles south of Page. You hike 1.5 miles, round-trip, up and down a hill to the river's edge for a spectacular view of Horseshoe Bend, an extended meander. We drove to the north side of town to an overlook of Glen Canyon Dam and then to a road, before crossing the dam, that goes north along Lake Powell to a parking area where you can walk on the sandstone and get a great view (see pic). This is a great place to just wander around and enjoy the view.
