On the road to or from Western Az, outside Flagstaff. Interesting Native American ruins. Easy hike to walk around native village, visitor center with explanations. Flagstaff is a cool college town with lots of bars and restaurants. Also some neat shops to browse

You have drive to visit about 5 spots with old ruins. They are pretty impressive and interesting for these who enjoys archeology and history. Require at least half day to see all.
