The study of the ruins of Native American people
You can plan your entire vacation in Arizona, going from the ruins of the ruins, but when you visit Phoenix, and you only have a day, be sure to ride about a half hour north of I-17 to the castle Montezuma, a five-storey housing of the rod of the 12th century, Sinagua in which people lived. It is an easy walk up the path 1/3 mile, which offers a beautiful view of the castle. If you have time, drive 11 miles to the north and visit Montezuma Well, where you can see the natural sink holes and small houses, built in the steep walls surrounding the hole. Hole Basin may seem a big yawn, but it's a really interesting place to visit.
