The town of Meadview is located very close to Lake Mead which up until recently was its only industry. It is also the closest town to the West Rim and the newly constructed Grand Canyon Skywalk. There are several hotels and small lodges, as well as some restaurants and a small store.
Meadview is a quaint desert town with a huge lake in its backyard. Surrounded by the states largest Joshua tree forest this once sleepy town has had an influx of artisans, tourists and retirees inn recent years.
There are two major activity centers near Meadview. One of course is Lake Mead, where you can fish, kayak, and partake in all kinds of boating activities. There are many small inlets, and many miles of shoreline for kayakers to enjoy anything from one day to weeklong trips. Lake Mead has several fish species including catfish, and a healthy population of stripers. Houseboating, wakeboarding and cruising can all be accommodated, and there are a couple shops in town where boaters can find supplies and storage facilities. About an hour drive, part of which is on a dusty dirt road is the Grand Canyon Skywalk. The Skywalk is a glass bride that hangs over the western rim of the Grand Canyon, and along with scenic flights, hummer rides, and wild west shows, is the hub of the Hualapai Nations tourism industry, and a very popular new Grand Canyon attraction.
