We thoroughly enjoyed the couple of hours we spent touring the Pueblo remains. The history of the native Americans that occupied this site is clearly explained by the guide book available with admission that numbers twenty stops around the ruins. The National Park Service does...More

The Ruins are very interesting to visit and you get a nice walk around the area and glance at how life was back then.

This is a beautiful monument with easy access and stupendous ruins. It’s a great side trip out of Flagstaff that can take 2-6 hours, depending on how long you linger and explore. There is a loop drive through the Sunset Crater Monument and exiting through...More

We made the trip to visit the Wupatki National Monument after visiting the Grand Falls. There are a number of cool places to visit in this part of Arizona and Wupatki is one of them. The pueblo ruins are very interesting.

It’s a neat place off the beaten path. Take the extra time to just go see them. Make sure to take your kids so you can always tell them to be grateful for what they have because the people that built these has it rough.

I would suggest the Northern entrance and work your way South. Sunset Crater and Wupatki are a good day trip. At the Southern entrance nearest Sunset Crater is a Park Ranger Station(GATE) were traffic could line up and have considerable wait. Coming from the North...More

Both my teenagers and young children liked this one. It’s a bit of a drive to get to the visitor center but from there it’s a pleasant walk around the ruins and a good free guide book explains it all. The views are also spectacular...More

Yes and no. The big cacti don’t grow above certain elevations. You will find the prickly pear cacti though. The bigger plants are found closer to Phoenix.
