Sedona

We are planning to spend three full days in Sedona, maybe four if time is needed, October of this year. Based on reading other comments, definitely will plan the jeep tour. Other than that, what other areas should we see/do, etc. for this time(preferably 3 days). Also, what part of Sedona/ or where do you recommend we stay while in Sedona. Also, restaurants? We are retired. Thank you ahead of time.

Use the Itineraries and restaurant and hotel links from this page to get some ideas. Then come back with more specific questions if you have any.

Where you stay in Sedona isn't that important. You'll use your car every day to tour the various sights and attractions. Choose a hotel with a style that fits you and your budget. B&Bs in Sedona are among the best in the world. But there is something for everybody.

Same for restaurants. Tell us what you like to eat. There's something for everyone. Part of the charm of Sedona is in the owner operated eateries as opposed to chains.

I urge you to make a decision and book your lodging ASAP. October is a very popular time to be in Sedona.

There are several sections of the Sedona area. If you are coming from the Phoenix area the first section is the Village of Oak Creek, VOC. There are a lot of hotels there and the famous Bell Rock is there. Lots of hiking opportunities for easy to moderate hiking. Some shopping and restaurants. About 7 miles north of VOC is Sedona proper. On the way to Sedona proper is the Chapel of the Holy Cross which is a must see. First is the Gallery area which has the quaint Spanish Village of Talaquepaque with shops and restaurants. Then uptown Sedona has a lot of hotels, some restaurants and most of the souvineer shops.

If you continue north you will be in Oak Creek Canyon. Some restaurants and B&B's. West Sedona has a mixture of stores, restaurants and hotels. This also leads to Red Rock Crossing which is a beautiful state park that wanders along the creek with nice walking trails, picnic area, etc. Also in this area is Red Rock State Park.

As RedRox said, if you give us some of your interests and budget for hotels, we can give better ideas.

"Sedona proper" is commonly referred to as Uptown Sedona and the Gallery District.

What Thelrose described are the 3 general business districts of "greater Sedona". Sights and attractions will be all around and beyond these places.

We are also retired and will be arriving in April for our 9th visit. We stay at Sedona Summit (our timeshare) and highly recommend it because of location, view and our age. Very quite and peaceful. Request a Mt. view unit. And yes you should start making your arrangements now if you are serious about coming to Sedona no matter where you stay. Sedona Summit is located across from Red Rock Park and Crosssing which is our favorite spot for sunsets. Sept/Oct is our favorite time to visit.

Elote is an amazing restaurant, but fills up fast. Check with the locals for restaurant hours.

Elote opens at 5PM Tue-Sat for dinner only. Patrons begin lining up around 4:45 for the first seating. After that you are on the list. It's worth the wait.

Thank you very much. We used reviews from Trip Advisor to reserve out hotel. Since we want to see as much as Sedona as possible, get a feel of the area and its history, the luxury of the hotel is not that important to us. Restaurants are, and tours are important to us. You all have helped us tremendously in my research. I understand how beautiful it is there. My husband and I like light hikes, but our days of doing moderate, and beyond is over. :-) If you think of anything else, please feel free to answer this. Again, thanks!
