The Navajo Nation’s Monument Valley Park is the site of one of the most iconic landscapes of the American Southwest. With its towering sandstone figures seemingly appearing to jut of a flat desert ground, the park is a great destination for artists and photographers in addition to mainstream visitors. The tribal park’s visitor center offers a thorough museum highlighting the history of the park and touches upon important events in the Navajo nation’s history – the museum also illuminates the current events and issues faced by the nation as well as its rich artistic and cultural history. The View restaurant offers a majestic view for diners as they enjoy house-made fry bread, a staple. The park is a great way to experience not only the views, but also the history and culture that makes Monument Valley special.
