Around the Area

Historic downtown Aztec is home to some beautiful, more modern early 20th-century architecture.

At the Aztec Ruins National Monument you can explore a 900-year old ancestral Pueblo Great House of over 400 masonry rooms & North America’s largest reconstructed great kiva. The Sandstone Arches  underscores the ethereal, camera-prompting beauty of the American Southwest, with over 300 archived natural arches & windows located 6 miles from Aztec. At the Museum & Pioneer Village the Aztec Museum complex houses of the finest collections of authentic western Americana. History comes alive at the Pioneer Village, where young & old are bedazzled by the resolve & fortitude of our forefathers.

Attention Anglers!!! The Quality Waters of the San Juan River span 4.25 miles of the San Juan River just below Navajo Dam and are among the most hallowed trout fishing waters in North America and ranked a USA Top-10 Fly Fishing Destination.


Mountain Biking enthusiasts can consume more than 30 miles of mountain bike trails, including the Alien Run, ranked among the more technically challenging & scenic single tracks in the Four Corners. Routed near an alleged UFO crash site, “the Alien Run” can be navigated by a novice yet is immensely challenging for experts. The Aztec Speedway offers IMCA-sanctioned modified, sport mod, hobby and mini sprint stock car racing.

Regarded among the Four Corner’s more enjoyable outdoor past times, Aztec Municipal Golf Course   is located on a rolling desert plain that offers majestic vistas, exciting elevation changes, bent grass greens and towering cottonwood trees, the 18-hole course is well suited for families, beginners and higher handicap golfers, yet the three-tee, 5,852-yard routing remains an enjoyable challenge even for accomplished players.


Purgatory Resort  a short drive from Aztec was named North America’s Best Ski Value by TripAdvisor three years running. Here, Colorado’s rugged San Juan Mountains are home to some of the most consistent and abundant snow in the southwest. Base is more than 8,000 feet above sea level, and the summit is nearly 11,000 feet.

For Retail therapy, you’ll enjoy perusing the options found at Main Street Music, Abode Furnishings and Bows, BottleCaps & More. And, once you’ve built up an appetite, some of the local favorites include Aztec Restaurant, Beer Belly’s, Rubio’s and Ruby’s.


And, should you need more to explore - Aztec is close to the Colorado attractions and recreation!
