We drove into Sedona from the North as we were coming from the Grand Canyon and our jaws were dropping the entire ride down into Sedona. It was magnificent (wouldn’t want to drive in a night) and the perfect place to use the Snapchat Spectacles. As we got further down the mountain, the sun was setting which made the red rocks illuminate-amazing.
There is definitely a peaceful, natural and relaxing vibe to this town. Time stands still a little bit here. It was the perfect place to reflect, explore and relax. Something to be said for having an all day reminder of how small you are to get you thinking about the bigger picture and pull you out of the mundane day to day stresses.
I think the photos speak for themselves but some friends have asked for recommendations so here they are:
Where to stay: I don’t think you can go wrong here but we stayed at the L’Auberge and it was beyond our expectations, the rooms are gorgeous. We watched the stars at night from the patio and adored the whistling creek that runs along the resort. The service was exceptional.
Where to eat: We loved Cowboy Club-maybe next time we’ll try the rattlesnake hehe. The Enchantment Resort was recommended to us and I am so glad we went (before sunset) and sat for hours looking at their view of the red rocks. Food was amazing too (see above warm pretzels).
What to do: it’s a daytime town, get outside and enjoy! We hiked Brins Mesa which was fun with great views, about a medium on the challenge scale. ( I was told the snakes were hibernating in December so we will go with that).
Tip: Drink a ton of water with the altitude and adventures!
