Lodging in Sedona

Sedona and adjacent Oak Creek offer a wide range of lodging options. A variety of wonderful bed and breakfasts dot both towns and their surrounding areas. Taking the kids along? Consider a spacious unit in one of the many timeshare condos where you can have multiple bedrooms as well as a living room and kitchen facilities.

Timeshares also offer the amenities of a pool, hot tub, game room and activities for both adults and kids. There are also many lovely rental cottages putting you more in touch with nature. Of course, there are some great hotels and motels, as well. One thing is certain, however, no matter where you choose to lodge, the views of the red rocks of Sedona are all breathtaking.

Dining

You won't starve in Sedona! Restaurants of all types and price ranges are easy to find. An absolute must visit while in Sedona is The Coffee Pot Restaurant that looks out onto its namesake the "Coffee Pot" red rock formation. The menu is inexpensive and offers a huge selection of 101 fantastic omelets. You don't eat eggs? No fear, because all the other choices on their menu are equally delicious.

A longtime favorite in Sedona and another restaurant to add to your list is Oaxaca Restaurante & Cantina (pronounced wa-ha-ka). This charming Mexican restaurant serves a wide range of Mexican, Southwest, American and vegetarian dishes in addition to a yummy selection of margaritas.

For a night of hot romance and fantastic Italian food make a reservation at Dahl and DeLuca or their equally wonderful second restaurant in Oak Creek, La Cucina Rustica. Both of these are pricey, but elegant, delicious, and worth the splurge.

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!
