Get around[edit]

See[edit][add listing]

  • The stars in this part of the world are incredible. There is very little light pollution.

Do[edit][add listing]

  • Grand Canyon River Outfitter, junction of highway 89 and 389, [1]. Offers expeditions on area trails and rafting on the Colorado, up to an eight day 300 mile rafting trip down the Grand Canyon..

Buy[edit][add listing]

  • Judd Auto sells t-shirts that say Judd Auto- Beer, Guns, Ammo, Lotto and Center of the Universe bumper stickers.
  • Prairie Dog Pottery, junction of highway 89 and 389. There are locally made pots and both unprocessed and processed rocks/gems here. The pots are well thrown, but have rather primitive glazes and decoration. The price you pay for seeing/buying pots and/or rocks is an ongoing editorial addressing everything from the local Mayor to the feds to the foreigners and, of course, east coast liberals. This fun continues even as you try to get back to your car.

Eat[edit][add listing]

  • Sage House Grill & Restaurant 465 S Main St.,(928) 643-7288‎. A nice local feel and a good value.

Don't speed. Fredonia is one of only a handful of towns on the Arizona Strip and there are more law enforcement than in cities many times larger. There are speed traps on both the north and south limits of town.

  • The Grand Canyon, [3] is relatively close. Grand Canyon Rafting, [4] begins at Lee's Ferry on the Colorado River which is about 90 miles away.
