A visit to Montezuma Castle is definitely one of the necessary things to do in Flagstaff for anyone interested in cliff dwellings. As one of the best-preserved North American cliff dwellings, the 20-room ancient apartment complex gives a fascinating glimpse into the past. The ruins are viewable from a 1/3-mile, self-guided trail through a beautiful sycamore grove, and the museum offers insights into what it was like to live in such a harsh climate 1,000 years ago.
Also worth a visit and one of the interesting things to do in Flagstaff, AZ, is Montezuma Well, just eleven miles from the castle site. Go to http://www.nps.gov/moca/index.htm or call 928-567-3322 for more information.
Wupatki National Monument is another site that offers a glimpse into Native American past, with a large ancient pueblo that you can tour.
