This was such an awesome experience. You could almost feel the ancient "aura" and the sight is quite impressive. Nice visitor center. Visited with a 7 year old and she really enjoyed herself.

Wupatki is the ruins of a large Native American Village. You get to walk right up and around it. Make sure to visit the Blow Hole, the earth seems to breath in and out of a hole in the ground (this visit they were doing some repair work and access was closed but usually it is open. For a fun trip from Flagstaff drive through Sunset Crater National Park. Then keep going as the road leads you straight to Wupatki. I did this on my way to the Grand Canyon, entering from the east entrance. Made for a great day of travel. Life Is Good

There is a small visitor center and some areas that you can explore ancient indian ruins. Just follow the road from Sunset Crater.

We stayed in Flagstaff and found this to be an easy drive from there. This park is the second park on the loop that takes you through Sunset Crater park and past views of the painted desert. We stopped at a pull out on the way just to look at the view. We were struck by the quiet and peacefulness of the place. I recommend starting at Sunset Crater and making your way around the loop that way. Doing this, you will see the visitor's center before reaching some of the other stopping points. Also good restrooms to use here before continuing on. We found the ruins and the history very interesting, along with the amazing views.
