Mesa Verde National Park

ADD TO MY TRIP

Alongside Chaco Canyon in New Mexico these ruins are probably the most impressive Anasazi ruins in the Southwest. They were built around 1200 AD and in the 70s were recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The charm of these ruins is that they're all cliff dwellings - the tightly fit stone buildings aren't exactly in caves, but they're inside recessions in steep cliff walls.
