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), Four Corners Monument (in Teec Nos Pos) and Hovenweep National Monument (in Cortez). Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Cliff Palace, contemplate the long history of Balcony House, trek along Petroglyph Point Hike, and see the interesting displays at Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum.

For more things to do, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Mesa Verde National Park vacation planning app.

Expect a daytime high around °F in September, and nighttime lows around °F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
