Route & dates

— 15 nights


As the closest town to a national park known for its archeological dwellings, Cortez sits along ancient trails that native Puebloan tribes have used for millennia.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and Purgatory Resort. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Cliff Palace and Spruce Tree House. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cortez: Durango (Animas Chocolate Company, Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum, &more), Mesa Verde National Park (Balcony House, Long House, &more) and Bluff (Twin Rocks Trading Post & Bluff Fort Historic Site). There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Hovenweep National Monument, appreciate the history behind Four Corners Monument, admire all the interesting features of Million Dollar Highway, and get a taste of life in the country at Majestic Dude Ranch.

To see more things to do, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Cortez trip itinerary maker website.

Expect a daytime high around 89°F in June, and nighttime lows around 46°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
