Planning Your Sedona Vacation

HomeAbout SedonaPlanning Your Sedona Vacation

Thanks to being fairly temperate all year long, Sedona always has something for you to do, and you really don’t have to worry about missing out on anything because your vacation happened during a specific season. That said, with all of the options out there, you’ll thank yourself later if you plan your vacation out in advance, because having an itinerary, or at the very least a rough idea of what you want to do, will help you make the most of your valuable  Sedona vacation time.

Book in Advance During Peak Seasons

Autumn and spring are the busiest times of year in Sedona, and if you’re trying to make your trip happen during one of those seasons, you’ll want to try and secure your rental several months in advance to ensure you get the perfect spot that’s been calling to you. On the other hand, of course, if you’re visiting during off season, you’re more likely to get your favorite pick, and maybe even at a discounted rate, so keep your eye out.

Make Time for a Day Trip or Two

There are several towns nearby that are absolutely worth the visit, and they make for a great way to break up your time in Sedona with change of scenery. Due to the gorgeous nature of the red rocks, sometimes the drive itself is part of the reward, because you’ll be treated to scenic views as part of the adventure. Towns like Cottonwood and Jerome have great bars and restaurants that are absolutely worth the trip, and with the sheer number of wineries in the area, you might even find one you want to stop by on the way.

Come Prepared for Those Outdoor Excursions

If you’re going to be spending a lot of time outdoors, make sure you are planning a trip to Sedona accordingly for the season. One of the best things to start with is dressing for the weather. Keep it light for the summer and bring an extra layer or two for the winter, and regardless of the season you should always remember to bring the sunscreen. Even when it’s colder out, always keep in mind that Sedona is usually sunny and not very humid, so you can still catch a couple burns if you aren’t careful.

Remember to be environmentally friendly while you’re out and about, too. While it’s absolutely acceptable to bring along a few drinks and snacks if you want to have a picnic with a view, be sure to bring along a bag or cooler to load your waste in for the return trip.

Check the Events Calendar

Sedona’s thriving arts community loves throwing all kinds of holiday-themed events year-round, and sometimes they make for the perfect extra activity to spice up your trip. Most of the time they’ll post what events are coming up online somewhere, so if you want to take a look and see what’s going on while you’re in town you might just find something that calls out to you.
