Mesa Verde, Colorado


Mesa Verde is as pretty and expansive as you'd expect, but what sets this National Park apart are the preserved cliff dwellings from an ancient people. Take your family on a tour of the ruins, and see how a native tribe lived centuries ago. If you look closely at the rock walls high above, you'll even see handprints from where the ancient people climbed without safety equipment.
