Sedona is a pleasant town.  The streets are clean and the water right out of the tap is good.  There are excellent restaurants, chic shopping venues, and a host of outdoor activities to enjoy…and you can enjoy all of it throughout the year.  

I loved the red rock and mountain formations in the area, and I loved the climate.  I grew up in Arizona, and it was nice to get back to the higher elevations where you can breath easy even in the middle of summer (yes, it gets hot-but there’s hot, and then there’s Phoenix hot).  I hiked around one of those rusty sandstone peaks (Bell Rock), and enjoyed the cool air on my skin.

You can drive to the Grand Canyon and back in a single day from there.  I made the trip from Vegas in a few hours myself, so it’s pretty convenient to “attractions”, as the tourist industry likes to say.

There isn’t any “wow” moment in Sedona.  It’s just a quiet place that’s easy on the eyes and makes you want to get outside and exercise.  It’s like a soothing balm for the soul.  Sometimes that’s good enough.
