Great scenic drive

Enjoy beautiful views of the painted desert and the evolving landscape on the scenic drive through this park. The ruins are worth exploring.

An excellent side trip while visiting the area. You can get a real feel for history, for how the native Americans lived and survived by visiting this site. The different sites throughout the park provide you some insight into what it took to not only survive but to thrive and become an established household. If you visit Sunset crater first,... More

What an amazing experience to walk thru the ruins at this national monument! There are no barriers and few limits. Check out the interpretive signs and dream about what it was like to be an ancient Puebloan. Be sure to visit the minor sites as well - there are 8 different sites visible from Citadel Ruin and only 2 of... More

This is one of many historical sites in and near Flagstaff that are "must-sees" when in the area. You can drive through, but the best experience comes with walking the trail. The most amazing thing is being able to see the adobe homes, which are still standing in many cases, that were built so many hundreds of years ago. What... More

This was a great place to stop & see the ruins. The kids learned a lot as did the adults. They are so well preserved too!

This was an awesome stop! I would highly recommend making the trip out to the ruins. It is a bit of a drive and you have to pay a fee but the ruins are in good condition and really cool to see. Some of the best ruins in the area.

Several thousand people organized into many communities lived in this area in the late 1100s. A visitor is able to walk all around the pueblo and see the ball fields as well as explanatory plaques, describing the events of the day. It's very well done and worth an hour or a bit less.

The first time you see Wupatki, it takes your breath away, what a gorgeous setting. Get a booklet at the visitors center explaining the different stops w hen you walk around it, fascinating. I would have loved to see it in its heyday!
