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: Four Corners Monument (in Teec Nos Pos) and Shiprock Rock Formation (in Shiprock). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Cliff Palace, don't miss a visit to Park Point, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Mesa Verde National Park, and explore the ancient world of Balcony House.

To find reviews, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Mesa Verde National Park road trip planner.

In September in Mesa Verde National Park, expect temperatures between °F during the day and °F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 19th (Sat) to allow time for travel back home.
