When would now be a good time to visit the Four Corners States, which include Utah, Colorado, Arizona and Utah?

The is a magical part of the country rich with natural wonders, lakes, rivers, mountains, Native American ruins, trading posts and modern day attractions and one of the best ways to see the area is in an RV (…if you don’t have an RV, don’t worry, we’ll show you how you can do it.).

Of course, on of the challenges with so much to see is where to stay.

You may or may not have realized that Farmington is a great place to stay while you tour the area (check our our Farmington RV Park).

Seeing the Four Corners States in an RV

If you want to see the Four Corners States, then traveling in an RV is a great way to do it.

What If You Don’t Have an RV?

Did you know that you can affordably rent an RV?  It’s a great way to see if you enjoy traveling by RV.  Check out Cruise America for RV Rentals.
Once you arrive in your RV, you’ll find that Farmington is surrounded by beauty – historic sites, vineyards, trading posts, monuments, lakes, mountains, world-class fishing and golf, and Native American events and crafts.

There’s a reason why people all the way back to the Anasazi have been settling in the area.

I’m not going to suggest you imagine being here already, but once you get here, you may want consider:

  • Aztec Ruins – Visit the ancestral Pueblo ruins or the nearby Salmon Ruins and Heritage Park. These ruins can be traced back to the ancestral Puebloans known as the “Anasazi.”
  • Canyon De Shelly – This park is unique amongst the different National Parks because it is made up entirely of Navajo Tribal Trust Land. Enjoy the sacred ruins, beautiful canyons and cottonwood trees that are home to a community of Navajo people.
  • Four Corners Monument – No trip would be complete without a trip to stand in four states at the same exact time.
  • Chaco Canyon – Enjoy the ruins that were once a major center for the Puebloan people between AD 850 and 1250.

What will you have done by the time your visit is over?  Sightseeing, fly-fishing, rafting, world-class golf, 4×4 rock climbing, skiing or snowboarding or even a winery tour?
