We loved the tour of Wupatki Natinonal Monument. The book we purchased for $1 gave us insight into the history at our own pace. The Rangers were very helpful in telling us a little more history and recommending the book. It took us about 2 hours to tour.

Wupatki is just one of a number of old American Indian pueblos; Wukoki is another, close by. The ruins have been sensitively restored and provide some great picture-taking opportunities, especially in late afternoon light. Those are the best ruins to visit, but there are also others like the Box Canyon ruins, if you have the time.

This is the jewel of the Native American ruins in the Flagstaff area. The National Parks Service has done a great job preserving and restoring it and the visitors' center provides an excellent overview of the history of the area. Unlike Walnut Canyon the trail is not at all strenuous.
It's a great family attraction, and the kids will enjoy imagining what it was like to live here 1,000 years and more ago. If you do take your kids, be sure to save the blowhole for last -- they won't want to leave when they stand over it.
Don't miss Sunset Crater which is on the same loop off of the road to the Grand Canyon.

We took our two girls here for a day trip and everyone had a lot of fun! So much history to view, and such great scenery. Worth the drive out there!

Close parking and easy walking trails allows close up access to the ruins. Most of the parking areas are outfitted with toilet facilities. The views from the ruins really make you wonder how / why people lived here, the environment must have been very different in their time.
