Mesa Verde National Park — 6 nights

Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Visit Far View Sites and Yucca House National Monument for their historical value. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Square Tower House and Spruce Canyon Trail. Take a break from Mesa Verde National Park with a short trip to Shiprock Rock Formation in Shiprock, about 1h 10 min away. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Soda Canyon Overlook Trail, hike along Point Lookout Trail, make a trip to Step House, and admire all the interesting features of Petroglyph Point Hike.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Mesa Verde National Park day trip planning app.

In June, plan for daily highs up to 89°F, and evening lows to 46°F.
