Most People Don’t Know About This Ancient Pueblo Ghost Town Hiding In Arizona
Ever wonder if there are enough days in a lifetime to see all there is to see in Arizona? You’re not alone! Some natives to the state may have heard about these incredible centuries-old ruins, but many haven’t, and so many just haven’t found the time to go see them in person yet. This site was discovered and then excavated in the 1930s, and then partially reconstructed. What we see today is a combination of the excavated and reconstructed ruins, and it’s fascinating.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
