You Can Easily Visit These 3 National Monuments In Arizona Before Dinner

Looking for something fun to do that won’t take up the whole weekend? If you’re a fan of history, geology, or just traveling, we have the perfect little trip to three national monuments located a pretty short distance from each other: Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater, and Wupatki.

In fact, this trip is more than perfect. It’s also convenient and inexpensive, especially if you’re near the Flagstaff area. Fees to these national monuments will cost a grand total of $28 and you won’t need a full tank of gas (unless your vehicle has terrible gas mileage, in which case you should get a more fuel efficient car).

We’re going to take a look at the history of each monument, some of the sights you’ll see, and how to get to each one. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
