A visit to Hovenweep National Monument is an excellent experience for anyone who wants to learn about the events of this region's past.
It is situated in Cortez. If you aren't familiar with the name, it is 270 miles (435 kilometers) outside of the capital of the state, Denver.
Be prepared to commute a little farther than usual to get to your hotel after an event-filled day. Due to its remote location, you won't find anywhere to rest your head within easy reach. Located 65 miles (105 kilometers) away, the Silver River Adobe Inn is a popular choice. The TownePlace Suites by Marriott Farmington, 65 miles (105 kilometers) away, and the Comfort Suites, a drive of 65 miles (105 kilometers), are two more choices to look up.
