This national monument has a series of ancient ruins, some of which you can (carefully) wander about in-- a rarity-- this is a little jewel of a park, and well worth the visit. We included the Sunset Crater Volcano as well on this trip, and enjoyed the views of the lava fields. A great day trip when visiting Flagstaff.

We had never seen pueblo ruins before, so this was very cool. If you are staying in the Flagstaff area, this coupled with Sunset Crater is a great day. Be warned, there is no food once you are inside the Sunset/Wupatki complex, so bring a picnic with you (which we failed to do, so we left and came back).

Good for kids to get out and run around, safe hike. Check out the pre-historic air conditioning (blow hole).

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
