Mesa Verde National Park is just the beginning!
The most famous archaeology site in the area is the award-winning Mesa Verde National Park. But there are many other ways to experience the culture and history of the area, and visitors are missing out if they don’t visit them, as well. The Anasazi Heritage Center, Canyons of the Ancients, Crow Canyon Archaeological Center, Hovenweep National Monument, Lowry Pueblo and the Ute Mountain Tribal Park each provide a deeper look into the fascinating culture of the Ancestral Puebloan people. As the saying goes, one day just isn’t enough!

The food scene is spectacular!
The ancestral Puebloan people were the first farmers in the region – growing squash, beans and corn on the tops of the mesas. The modern-day agriculturalists carry on a rich tradition and provide fresh produce, locally-raised meat and artisan wines, beers and ciders to restaurants and consumers direct at local farmers markets. The Metate Room at Mesa Verde National Park serves up sustainable cuisine with a view. The Farm Bistro sources its fare locally, and offers Colorado wine and beer. USA Today recently named the green chile at Absolute Bakery and Beny’s Diner some of the best in Colorado. The culinary options are endless – and delicious!
Mountain biking is best in Mesa Verde Country!
Those seeking the next great destination for mountain biking need look no further than Mesa Verde Country. From single track trails to challenging San Juan Mountain climbs, Mesa Verde has more than 600 miles of trails to traverse. The higher elevations in the mesas and mountains offer incredible views, as well as relief from the mid-summer heat. In the winter, fat biking turns the sport into a four-season adventure. Favorite trails include Sand Canyon, Phil’s World and Boggy Draw.
