On the way to the Grand Canyon from Scottsdale, we stopped in Camp Verde to see Montezuma's Castle. It's not a castle at all, but Native American dwellings built into a cliffside about 875 years ago. Visitors are not allowed inside, you must view the buildings from below. You may want binoculars. Worth a stop!

Take exit 289off of I-17 and follow the signs!
