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: Shiprock Rock Formation (in Shiprock), Cortez (Hovenweep National Monument, Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, &more) and Four Corners Monument (in Teec Nos Pos). Next up on the itinerary: delve into the distant past at Cliff Palace, learn more about the world around you at The Anasazi Heritage Center, admire the majestic nature at Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness, and explore and take pictures at Ruins Road.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Mesa Verde National Park day trip planning site.

In December in Mesa Verde National Park, expect temperatures between 44°F during the day and 15°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
