Interesting pueblo ruins with a paved trail leading around them. There are signs describing what you see: the different rooms and lifestyles that must have taken place. The visitor's center was not manned and aside from the restrooms, there wasn't anything to see there.

This is a great place to see and learn how people survived and thrived in the high desert over 1,000 years ago.

this place is so cool and just, bam!, right there in the middle of the desert. Kids will love the natural blowhole, be sure to walk all the way down to it!

Wupatki NM gave us our first taste of an ancient dwelling of puebloan peoples during our vacation through the greater Four Corners region which contain plenty of sites and ruins to see. We visited Wupatki in conjunction with our side trip to Sunset Crater Volcano NM during our drive north on Hwy 89 from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon. We... More

We weren't sure if this was going to be worth the drive from Sunset Crater. But is was surprisingly interesting. The "main" ruin is just a short walk from the visitor center. There are then stairs that lead you down. It looks kind of steep but it was actually easier than it looks getting back up. There are many ruins... More

This is a nice detour off the main highway, via Sunset Crater National Monument. The largest Indian pueblo can be seen after a short walk from the visitor center. You can also walk down into the pueblo itself to get a feel for living in the area. Other pueblo ruins can be seen from the road or visited after a... More

Nice drive through the area to see the various ruins. Some are free. The most well-preserved are next to the museum store.

This is a little off the beaten path but is definitely worth the loop. I really enjoyed the scenery. Unfortunately we were to late on a Sunday to take the tour, but it is definitely still interesting and plenty to do even if not on the tour. It is a little bit of a hike fromt he parking lot, and...

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised to find this national monument. We did have enough time to visit all six pueblos by car; we did not have time to hike all of them. The main pueblo is at the visitors center and is the largest and most intact pueblo. It is absolutely amazing to think that these buildings were... More
