In these days of the internet. the best advice still came from the Park Rangers who know these areas so well. Butch in the Oak Creek Canyon visitors centre told us about this and the view from the Chapel. Both worthwhile.

Very nice place to get to. Beauitful sunset. We did not hike up to the vortex. Not a lot of parking for the vortex hike. You can park at the airport and then do the hike.

Depending on where you come from, you may be expecting a different kind of sunset. At first, we were looking forward to the beautiful sunrise/sunset in Sedona. But as we watched a few we realized that the lack of humidity and moisture in the air means a much less colorful sunset than what we were expecting.

The airport mesa is a beautiful lookout. We went about 45 minutes before sunset and the lot was just starting to fill up. It was a great view of the city and we did watch the sunset. But it was just watching the sun go down...no beautiful sky changes. No charge, not a long drive, easy access, just walk across the street from the parking lot and you are there, so no great loss if you aren't overly thrilled with it.

Loved Sedona, but must say I was disappointed in the sunsets. I have read that the beauty is in the changes of color, but although this may offend some, I was not impressed. I have seen such glorious sunsets in Florida and expected to be awed in Sedona.

Depending on what time of year you go, the sunsets are anywhere from good to GREAT. You need to go up to the parking area just before the Airport. The view of the sunset from there is unbeatable. Take your camera!! When to sun starts down it shines on the red rock mountains. Then after it goes down for about 25 minutes the colors will change and they are unbelievable.
