If you’re looking for a weekend of relaxation, nature/adventure – or maybe a little bit of both – Sedona is a perfect place. You can spend the weekend relaxing at some of the many vortexes, enjoy time at the spa or hike the many gorgeous trails. As an added bonus – everywhere you look has a breathtaking view. Even as you drive into the town, the scenery is amazing, and the red rocks literally look like a movie backdrop. I’ve been to Sedona on two occasions – once as a “romantic” weekend getaway and another for a bachelorette party. Both times I had such a fun experience. Keep reading for the top 3 must-do’s when visiting Sedona. And if you’re thinking of planning a trip to Sedona, but don’t actually want to plan, check out the Sedona travel guide.
Top 3 When You Visit Sedona
»DEVIL’S BRIDGE HIKE: This full hike has gorgeous scenery of Sedona and leads you to a natural rock-like bridge you can cross. It takes about 2 hours to hike to the Bridge + back, but that includes stopping along the way to take pictures (you’ll have a difficult time getting through the hike without taking pictures, the views are gorgeous). WARNING: This is not a good place to go if you’re afraid of heights. However, even though the actual walk way portion of the “bridge” seems extremely narrow, it’s actually much wider when you’re walking on it.
»SLIDE ROCK: Grab your bathing suit and venture to Slide Rock – a park with natural “water slides”. Even if you don’t plan on going in the water, there is plenty of exploring to do and the waterfalls are beautiful. The drive to Slide Rock is scenic as well, filled with many photo ops.
»CATHEDRAL ROCK: Cathedral Rock is an amazing place to see countless views of Sedona. It’s also one of the many Vortex locations as well. You can see a most of the views in about 1.5-2 hours (roundtrip). There are definitely a few parts that are pretty steep, but if you have the right shoes, it’s worth it.
