Amazing views of Lake Powell, Glen Canyon Dam and Bridge and sweeping red rock vistas. In depth tour of the dam - going from the top, all the way to the bottom into the electricity generation plant. The kids had fun and were very interested.

You don't have to book any tour, or pay any money to walk on the bridge, look around the Dam and take photos . Just make sure you have a hat, cold water bottle, as the sun is very strong. And enjoy . :-)

Which hotel are you looking at? You can call the hotel and ask them for a mini fridge. Sometimes you can get one for free, and sometimes they charge $5 a day. Most of the hotels we stayed at had mini fridges.
