Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Get out of town with these interesting Mesa Verde National Park side-trips: Cortez (Hovenweep National Monument & Notah Dineh Trading Company and Museum), Four Corners Monument (in Teec Nos Pos) and The Anasazi Heritage Center (in Dolores). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Cliff Palace, don't miss a visit to Step House, trek along Nordenskiold #16 Trail, and contemplate the long history of Balcony House.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Mesa Verde National Park online itinerary planner.

August in Mesa Verde National Park sees daily highs of °F and lows of °F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
