Other Nearby Places to Visit
Until the Navajo Bridge was completed in 1929, a ferry was the only way to cross the Colorado River between Utah and Arizona. The bridge, christened with ginger ale, was originally called the Grand Canyon Bridge but was renamed Navajo Bridge in 1934. A second steel bridge to accommodate heavier traffic and larger vehicles was completed in 1995 (and christened with a bucket of river water). The historic Navajo Bridge is still in use today as a pedestrian bridge, providing visitors with spectacular views of the Colorado River 467 feet below.
