10 Things to Do in Mesa Verde National Park
Explore ruins abandoned 200 years before Christopher Columbus set foot in the “new world” plus 9 more fun activities.
Described as the pyramids of North America, the ancient ruins at Mesa Verde hold the early stories of our nation. About 1,400 years ago ancestral Puebloans built more than 600 dwellings into the gorgeous sandstone cliffs. Go on a guided tour of cliff dwellings with a ranger. Purchase your tickets in advance because these tours are really popular. Buy them online at recreation.gov or call 1-877-444-6777 starting March 9, 2020.
You can purchase them in person at the Mesa Verde Visitor and Research Center up to two days in advance. Keep in mind there are limited walk-up tickets.
