Sedona is a beautiful town that makes a great weekend getaway. I spent three nights there with a friend, soaking in the sunsets over Sedona's famous red-rock formations, enjoying the food and art, and even taking a day trip to the south rim of the Grand Canyon.
We drove from Orange County (just south of Los Angeles), leaving early in the day, but arriving in time to check-in at our bed-and-breakfast and head out to dinner. Yes, it was a long drive, but if you enjoy the road, it's quite doable. Alternatives would include flying into Phoenix and renting a car.
We stayed at Alma de Sedona Inn…
Eating in Sedona
