Montezuma Castle National Monument is easily accessible from I-17, and it's well worth a stop. The Castle itself is outstanding, and the information provided both at the visitor centre, and on placards are very good. The walk along the cliff is not very long, and...More

You sound remarkably organised - we just made a list of attractions and did as many as we could - as to what’s covered I have no idea, either go back to the website or call them.

In your situation, I would not visit Montezuma Well due to lack of shade but I would highly recommend visiting Montezuma Castle because it is truly incredible and there is shade with benches to view the ruin itself. It is a... More
