Just a short walk from the visitors center you are greeted by a view of the Wupatki ruins, inhabited about 1,000 years ago by native dwellers. The site is partially restored and the walkway will take you on an informative, self-guided tour. The visitors center has a nice gift shop and interpretive exhibits. It's an amazing site and definitely a... More

We love history and to visit historic sights. Wupatki is one of the very best. After entering from the north end of the loop drive, and passing several other ruins, we were amazed at the restoration of the Wupatki Pueblo ruins, ball field, and community arena. We missed the "blow hole" so you may wish to seek it out. Beautiful... More

We combined this with a trip to Sunset Crater, and it turned out to be my favorite park. The ruins are exceptional in that they show so much about the social history of native people. My kids learned a lot, and enjoyed it as well.

If you haven't seen Mesa Verde and the pueblos in NM this is very much worth visiting. To me it was more of the same unfortunately. The scenic drive to sunset crater was very nice though.

GO TO WUPATKI - it is worth the drive! Take the Loop Road north to south and stop at each pueblo. We had all but the one behind the visitor's center to ourselves. You can walk into may of the structures, and hypothesize why each was situated on a hill or next to an "earth crack". These are easy half... More

This is a beautiful place to visit and the ruins from the pueblos from the past are so impressive...to think that the anasazi people built these over a thousand years ago. These people must have had wonderful skills and little tools...only those made by themselves and they raised their young here as well. It is a wonderful achievement and by... More

Flagstaff has been for years an interesting town within a driving distance from phoenix, if you go on a day where no tourists are around, you can enjoy the whole town for yourself, make sure you drink plenty of water and pack some sun screen because you will not feel it but the sun will dehydrate you so take precautions....
