Glen Canyon is named for the dam, Glen Canyon Dam, that creates Lake Powell, its main sight. Driving across the dam offers you amazing, contrasting view of the waterless canyon on one side and the lake on the other. The recreation area mainly features boating; there are no beach-type areas that allow you to swim or sit by the lake, so you'll have to rely on your hotel pool to escape the heat.
