Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Change things up with these side-trips from Mesa Verde National Park: The Anasazi Heritage Center (in Dolores), Cortez (Hovenweep National Monument & Cortez Cultural Center) and Four Corners Monument (in Teec Nos Pos). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Balcony House, trek along Petroglyph Point Hike, examine the collection at Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Nordenskiold #16 Trail.

To find maps, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Mesa Verde National Park online attractions planner.

Expect a daytime high around °F in May, and nighttime lows around °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
