Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Venture out of the city with trips to Teec Nos Pos (Four Corners Monument & Teec Nos Pos Trading Post), Farmington (Salmon Ruins, Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness, & more) and Dolores (Rio Grande Southern Railroad Museum., The Anasazi Heritage Center, & more). There's still lots to do: soar above the sights with a balloon tour, explore and take pictures at Hovenweep National Monument, contemplate the long history of Petroglyph Point Hike, and delve into the distant past at Balcony House.
