Here we go again. If you are thinking of visiting this National Monument, there is one VERY BIG IF when debating whether-or-not you want to get involved in this approximately 35-mile long, two hour drive IF you do it right. The BIG IF is this : Do you have the time to spend visiting a somewhat ordinary attraction. What after... More

We took the kids to Wupatki so they know what great things they have in their own backyard. The visitor's center is located close to the easiest ruin to access, while you can instead choose a hike to other pueblo ruins. The excavated ruins are quite impressive on their own, but the kids really got into the rebuilt ball court... More

This is an amazing look into life 800 years ago. You will check in at the ranger station and be given a self guided tour of the pueblo's wall structures and surrounding circular enclosures. The area has a rich history as less "ancient " people subsequently used and modified the structures. The area doesn't have a lot of "scientific" study... More

It's hard to be an attraction when you have the Grand Canyon as competition, but Wupatki National Monument is most definitely worth the trip. Being able to enter the pueblos really made for an interesting experience. The visitor's center had guide books that took you through the loop and told you about the monuments and the ruins. The views along... More

On our way back to Phoenix we decided to stop here and we were glad we did. It is amazing the history of the area and the preservation on these ruins. We stopped and got a guidebook from the visitor center which is a great benefit to see all it has to offer. This is well worth the stop and... More

This site has been so well preserved you are taken back in time. It is easy to follow the paths to each location but recommend going to the gift shop first to get the guidebook so you know what you will be seeing.

My husband and I visited early Sunday morning. 45 degrees out, needless to say we were the only ones there. We are sad we did not get to see all of it. Stunning views from the Citadel. These ruins were so much more than I expected. Excited to visit again.

An excellent stop along the way to Grand Canyon or Monument Valley. It is worth stopping for by taking a loop off the main road north that does not add too much time. I recommend that if time is tight to at least see the buildings that you access from the Visitor Center.

This was an impromptu stop after visiting Sunset Crater. The pueblo's were amazing and had very nice easily traversed paths that allowed us to view all sides.
