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: Farmington (Salmon Ruins & Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness), The Anasazi Heritage Center (in Dolores) and Cortez (Hovenweep National Monument, Cortez Cultural Center, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Balcony House, take in the dramatic natural features at Square Tower House, delve into the distant past at Cliff Palace, and appreciate the history behind Four Corners Monument.

For ratings, photos, and tourist information, read Mesa Verde National Park journey maker website .

In March, daytime highs in Mesa Verde National Park are 59°F, while nighttime lows are 24°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
