We left on Friday morning and visitors.was.insane. Normally it may well get fairly congested, however this was next-level dangerous. As a substitute of taking 3 hours and 45 min to get there, it took 8 1/2 hours! AHHHHH. The ladies are journey champions however we have been all SO able to get out of the automobile. We picked up Picazzo’s on our approach into city (it was wonderful) and crashed on the Airbnb. In an effort to attempt one thing new, this was our first time not staying at L’Auberge de Sedona. Whereas I undoubtedly missed the comfort and splendid vibe, our Airbnb was tremendous cute and gave us a number of flexibility with our journey.

Once we’re in Sedona, we usually rotate between three requirements: out of doors adventures/hikes, buying, and consuming. What extra do you actually need, proper?!

A number of the out of doors adventures we loved:

– Slide Rock. Slide Rock is a must-do in case you have kiddos (or in case you’re only a kiddo at coronary heart). Pure slides are constructed into the rocks within the creek and there are a number of alternatives to slip, swim, and leap off cliffs. The water is FREEZING however when you get in, you get used to it pretty rapidly. Liv and I went on the massive rock slide collectively at the very least 10 instances haha. Professional tip: put on water sneakers. Lots of the rocks are coated with algae, which might get slippery. We additionally pack up a cooler with snacks, drinks, sunscreen, and many others. They’ve a cute market which sells meals and comfort gadgets, however it’s nearer to the doorway than the precise park. You’ll be able to take a look at extra pics and recommendations on Slide Rock right here.

– Climbing! We did three beautiful hikes whereas we have been there: West Fork Path (we’ve achieved this one earlier than), Bell Rock (new to us!), and Little Horse Path (additionally new to us).

West Fork Path is lush and shaded, with a number of possibilities to cross water. (Your ft will get moist!!) It’s a straightforward, pretty flat hike, surrounded by wildflowers and timber, and pet and kid-friendly. That is  a must-do as a result of the surroundings is so distinctive and wonderful.

Bell Rock path goes up into the Bell Rock vortex. Sedona is house to 4 vitality vortexes, that are widespread climbing spots. The vortexes are believed to advertise vitality and therapeutic, and a few folks really feel tingling of their our bodies as they change into nearer to the vortexes, or extraordinarily calm and relaxed. The vortexes may also have an effect on sleep! I’ve discovered that my first evening in Sedona, I at all times sleep tremendous evenly and have bizarre goals! After the primary evening, I sleep extraordinarily effectively. It was our first vortex hike and I used to be stunned how excessive we have been in a position to get! The youngsters needed to maintain going however I vetoed them after we acquired to a sure level. If it have been as much as them, we’d go to the very prime!

(Heads up that some these pics appear as if we’re standing near the sting, however we’re a protected distance away. I’m too paranoid lol.) This path is dog-friendly and well-marked, however when you get to the steeper parts, it’s a must to make your personal path to get greater.

Little Horse Path is a straightforward out-and-back with lovely views (heads up that it doesn’t have a number of shade). It was scenic and dog-friendly; we’ll undoubtedly be going again!

We additionally shopped a bit – love the retailers at Tlaquepaque and the Heart for New Age – and ate all.the.issues. Sedona has some unimaginable eating places; many with patio choices and breathtaking views.

The place we ate:

Creekside (informal spot and the meals is persistently nice)

Additionally they have a canine menu. Maisey had steak tartare with egg and can by no means be the identical.

Chocolatree (vegetarian cafe with a housemade chocolate part and every part is gluten-free. It’s principally my dream come true.)

I had an adaptogenic tea with chaga and reishi, a vegan brownie, and a inexperienced goddess salad

Dinner at Javelina Cantina. Very cute patio and wonderful service, however the meals was so-so. Simply go for the chips, guac, and margaritas.

Dinner at Secret Backyard – at all times contemporary and good. We shared the hummus appetizer, I loved the salmon for my entree, and we devoured some chocolate mousse cake for dessert

Takeout breakfast from Pink Rock Cafe 

(peep the three lb cinnamon roll aka the perfect restaurant cinnamon roll I’ve ever had. Who knew that walnuts and raisins take issues excessive.)

Thai Spices (takeout on the best way house. It was INSANELY superb and contemporary. I extremely suggest the inexperienced curry rooster.)

It was the right little getaway crammed with all of my favourite issues. Despite the fact that I’m again to the same old work and life craziness, I really feel refreshed. 🙂
