Great article! Sedona, Arizona is beautiful and it's only about 2 to 2 1/2 hours from Phoenix (the drive isn't that bad). There's a lot to do in Sedona from taking a Pink Jeep Tour to visiting parks such as Slide Rock Park. Watch out for falling rocks, especially when it rains. Bring lots of sunscreen, although Sedona's cooler than the Phoenix area. If you're into mystics and psychics, you'll find plenty of them in Sedona along with spectacular restaurants such as Javelina Cantina on Highway 179 at the Hillside Shopping Center. Happy travels to the Grand Canyon State!

I've been to Sedona, but it was only for about a hour or 2. In the evening, OMGosh, it is so beautiful and romantic, and how I long to go back and visit for some time! It is still in my mind, and I have to go back!!

What a great travel article! The photos were awesome, and the writer really knows the territory. Her tour guide through the beautiful red rock country of Sedona was enlightening. I want to visit soon!
