“Beautiful on a fall day -”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

The autumn leaves are beautiful and it's a great place to camp and/or explore trails. Several worthwhile visitor centers. Delicious food and outdoor eating area at Indian Gardens Deli.

“windy but worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

If you get motion sick, I recommend dramamine before this snaky drive. It was an incredibly beautiful drive in the fall, but one of our group did not feel well when we reached the top. The lookout at the top is worth the trip, as is the shopping! The gift shop has the best souvenirs we found, and the Native American jewelry and pottery is outstanding. It is pricey but they will bargain a bit with you. Don't leave empty handed!

“Beautiful Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We were here in October. The trees were changing, and the scenery was spectacular. Stopped at Garlands too. Although it is pricey, I would suggest going in to enjoy the beautiful workmanship of the jewelry.

“A must-do when in Sedona!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Driving Oak Creek Canyon (89A North) is best experienced with the convertible top down, or the sunroof wide open! It's amazing with the trees on one side, and the creek on the other. Driving this route to Flagstaff is an amazing experience - especially for southern Arizonans/tourists. We like to stay at places along Oak Creek when we stay in Sedona. Go out and enjoy it today!
