“Best view of ALL of Sedona!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

We went to Airport Mesa for sunset (along with several hundred other people). It was not too crowded for getting great pics. On the way down, we stopped at the airport overlook and climbed the rock there where one of the vortexes is located. Great views of Bell, Cathedral and Courthouse rocks on the side of the Mesa where hwy 179 goes through Oak Creek Canyon. Went back again the next day during full daylight to get some super pics.

“One of Many Highlights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Drove the short drive up to the Mesa and enjoyed sunsets two evenings in a row with about a hundred other people. Some of the prettiest sunsets (and pictures) that I have experienced. The first turn out about half a mile up was usually very crowded with little parking available. Another half mile up on top of the mesa is a rather large parking area with plenty of parking available. Though many people were there both nights there was plenty of room to get your pictures without people in front of you. Also great early evening views of Sedonda and surrounding spires and cliffs. A definite do not miss.

“Love the views from here”

This is a very special place to view the red rocks from way up high! The views are amazing and it gives you such a sense of the wonder of nature as you gaze out!

“Great spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had a wonderful meal here. Usually airport restaurants as so-so, but this is a restaurant worth a visit all unto itself. Nice view and beautifully prepared food!

A photographers dream. Awesome location to take photos of the sunset. Gorgeous views. Get there early or you will not have a place to set up.
