As the closest town to a national park known for its archeological dwellings, Cortez sits along ancient trails that native Puebloan tribes have used for millennia. The town of about 8,500 residents also serves as a home base for travelers to the nearby ancient cliff dwellings and hiking trails. The small downtown area has wide, dusty streets lined with wooden and brick storefronts that mimic the storefronts of earlier western towns. Large wooden patios and awnings shade restaurants and souvenir shops, while pueblo-style buildings pay homage to the first people who occupied the area. The town's main industries revolve around tourism and government careers. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Cortez trip itinerary using our United States trip planner.
