Talk to the park staff- they have tons of cool facts and details that really make you appreciate and understand what youre looking at.
This was truly an amazing place. Walking along and imaging the Native Americans living there years ago. You can either walk on your own or have a park ranger give you a guide. We chose to do our own, at our own pace, taking one of the information guide pamphlets to tell us about each dwelling. The blow hole was... More
We enjoyed the ride to the monument- the desert is beautiful. Hard to believe people lived and still live there. The home is a great historic place of the Native Americans and how they lived
The Wupatki monument and Sunset crater national monument can be seen in the same day. It is just a short drive north of flagstaff off of hwy 89. Make sure you go when it isn't too windy and cold, it gets quite chilly here in November. There are a couple good hikes along the way also prior too the sunset... More

We visited in late October on a day when the weather was generally pleasant, but there were thunderstorms along our route as we drove south. However, by the time we... More
For a trip back in time, and an opportunity to better understand the indigenous people of AZ, this place can't be beat. It's massive. Take the time to explore the interactive gift shop/museum entrance before you go. Don't miss the petroglyphs on the back side of this monument. Fantastic.
