Cortez, Co., an archaeological center of America, lies between the entrance to world-famous Mesa Verde National Park and the fascinating Ute Mountain Tribal Park. Whether you come to visit either or both of these sites, by the time you leave you'll be steeped in the history of the Ancestral Pueblo people.

Ancestral Puebloans lived in the Mesa Verde area for more than eight centuries. The park is most famous for its cliff dwellings, but many of the surface sites also tell the story of the people who inhabited this area for centuries.

Cortez boasts 116 acres of parks and trails, as well as a professional 18-hole golf course.
