Touring the state's most interesting Indian ruins:
While the Indian ruins of northwestern New Mexico tend to garner all the attention, Arizona has plenty of its own ruins, including Anasazi cliff dwellings, mud-walled Hohokam structures, and stone-walled Sinagua pueblos. The greatest concentrations of easily accessible ruins are in the Flagstaff and Sedona areas, on the Navajo Reservation, and south and east of Phoenix.
You can start ruining your vacation right outside Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport with a visit to Pueblo Grande Museum & Cultural Park, which preserves the site of a Hohokam village. There isn't much to be seen of the pueblo itself, but there are informative exhibits
Much more impressive ruins can be found about 90 miles north of Phoenix near Sedona. Within an hour's drive of Sedona, you'll find not only numerous small ruin sites, but several larger sites. Just outside the town of Clarkdale, on the Verde River, stand the ruins of Tuzigoot, a Sinagua pueblo that was built atop a hill overlooking the river valley. Today the ruins are preserved as Tuzigoot National Monument, and an interpretive trail winds through the partially restored ruins.
