As women, we know that we could never make it as far or be as strong as we are without the support from our sisters, the women who understand our insecurities, flaws, and strengths, and love us unconditionally! And when it comes time to celebrate the women in your life with a girls’ trip to Sedona, I Love Sedona will stand right behind you, offering support with our comfortable hideaways and with this guide to all the ways you can squeeze every minute of enjoyment out of your escape to the red rocks. Our day-by-day guide to your three days of sisterhood will ensure that no one leaves for home feeling let down—unless they are sad that the three days went by so quickly, that is!
Day 1: Late Beginnings?
Your first full day in Sedona may get off to a late start, especially if you and your girl gang each arrived on different schedules the night before, but that’s ok! Sleep late, take your time getting ready, and then make your way over to the Secret Garden Café for a breakfast in the charming Tlaquepaque Arts and Shopping Village, where, coincidentally, most of this first day will take place! Sample the offerings at their morning quiche bar, sipping mimosas and spending time getting caught up with your gal friends while sitting at tables in their beautiful gardens, putting off the moment when you have to get up and walk around. (Don’t worry, it will be fun, we promise!) Billed as the Art & Soul of Sedona, you and your gals can spend the day dipping in and out of cozy shops, blingy boutiques, and galleries filled with the works of artists from here and all over the world, and if your late start kept you from enjoying lunch, why not make it a full day with an elegant meal at Rene’s Restaurant and Wine Bar? Ice cream from CREAM or chocolate from How Sweet It Is can help you stave off hunger pangs, and when you see the menu that awaits you, you will definitely understand that it was worth the wait! Their Lobster Seafood Risotto is a bit pricey, but it is so delicious, and how often do you get away with these women you love so much, anyway?
Day 2: The Creature Comforts
You could spend this Sedona day trip hiking through the red rocks, shopping at the unique stores found in uptown Sedona, or hanging out at your I Love Sedona sanctuary swimming in the pool or soaking in the hot tub, but after a quick breakfast tossed together by the appointed cook of the day, why not explore the creature comforts with a visit to a day spa! We in Sedona tend to stay in tune with our spiritual side, understanding that if mind, body, and soul aren’t at peace, we will never feel at ease, and many of the spas in the area offer services that cater to all three! The Blue Sage Day Spa, located at 60 Stutz Bearcat Drive, A Spa for You Sedona Day Spa, located at 30 Kayenta Court, and Sedona’s New Day Spa, voted Sedona’s BEST Day Spa in 2023, has been open for over 15 years and located at 3004 W State Route 89A, all feature a plethora of services designed to spoil you and your favorite ladies!
Day 3: Already Time to Say Goodbye?
On your last day in Sedona, there will be many ways to spend the day and evening and never enough words to express just how much you love these beautiful women! This might be the perfect time to get back to nature hiking along the many trails that lead visitors through, around, and on top of the red rocks, including a visit to any (or all) of the four vortexes the area is known for. Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, and Boynton Canyon all offer trails that will take you to where the spiritual vibes are the strongest, and when the day has come to an end, perhaps the best way to say goodbye to all the fun times you have had with your sisters from different misters is with a stop in Vino di Sedona, a wine bar located at 2575 AZ-89A. What you may not have known is that Arizona is a very popular wine region and even offers its very own Verde Valley Wine Trail. Vino di Sedona is not one of the spots on the wine trail map, but we think its selection of over 900 wines from all over the world will make you ok with missing out on the trail! (If you have the time, you can download your “passport” from the wine trail at this site and have a blast getting it stamped.)
In any case, on this last night before you bid farewell to your favorite peeps, sipping wine, snacking on pub fare, and enjoying live music on certain nights will be the perfect way to say adios to your trip to Sedona. Reserve your favorite I Love Sedona escape today!
