Luxury for your mind, body, and spirit

Destination(s): Sedona

Take five days to sink into Sedona and you'll be begging to come back again and again. The red rock overlooks, the smell of the juniper pine after a quick monsoon shower, the song of the creek, and the allure of the galleries will charm you. Sedona is known for it's spiritual side too--with vortexes and crystals being the local spirits. Even if you're not a believer, there's a spirit to Sedona that ha* endured even the suburban development of the town, and if you let it in, you'll never want to let it go. Find peace of mind at Enchantment spa and resort, the red-rock monuments, the Ancient Indian Ruins, the song of Oak Creek, and the artistic fervor that pervades this area. read more about Luxury for your mind, body, and spirit

A trip to Sedona would not be complete without a day spent bumming around Oak Creek Canyon. Traveling from Flagstaff to Sedona, Ponderosa pines give way to Sedona's signature red rocks in this breathtaking canyon. A quick stop at the Oak Creek Canyon Vista Lookout is worth a few wide-angle lens photos before driving down the winding switchbacks. Once the road levels out, most visitors tour the canyon by foot; hiking along Oak Creek, there are plenty of opportunities for fishing, swimming, and gazing at the towering cliffs in all directions. read more about Oak Creek Canyon

Cathedral Rock is one of Sedona's most famous scenic landmarks, a majestic monolith with red spires twisting up toward the sky, perfect for getting postcard-worthy vacation pics that will make your friends back home green with envy. Be warned that getting up close and personal with Cathedral Rock is not a simple endeavor, but it's completely worth the effort for the broad valley views and close encounters with a fascinating lava dike. You'll need to rock climb your way across and over steep, unshaded bald rocks and shallow clefts to get to rock's multilevel ledges and bases. Like all great hikes, challenging but rewarding. To get here from the junction of Routes 89A and 179, take 179 south 3.5 miles to Back-O'Beyond Road, which will be on your right. From there, go less than one mile to the trailhead parking turnout on your left.

For many visitors who come to Sedona to experience first-hand the dream-like, red rock landscape of this Southwestern destination, hiking Boynton Canyon Trail ranks high on the list of things to do. Boynton Canyon is one of the most popular box canyons in the Southwest, earning Sedona dozens of glossy travel magazine spreads over the years. The easily accessible, 2.5 mile trail into the canyon lies just southwest of town, starting at the same trailhead as another popular hike, Deadman's Pass Trail. Boynton Canyon trail, which leads you by groves of fragrant oak, juniper, and pine trees, meanders over dry washes, skirts the edges of the Enchantment Resort, and then descends toward the sandy bottoms of the red sandstone canyon. The prehistoric ruins of the Sinagua people are said to be hidden high in the canyon cliffs. More recently, Boynton Canyon has earned the reputation as a prime vortex zone, beckoning travelers looking to soak up the high desert energy from Sedona's so-called energy vortexes.

Succumb to the natural curiosity brought on by the mystery of ancient rock writings and pictographs. Similar to Palatki in terms of style, and history, the ruins at Honanki are larger. While the rock writings and pictographs are inspiring, they are less accessible than those at Palatki. A good pair of binoculars, therefore, would serve visitors well. To get to Honanki, drive beyond the Palatki Ruins, continuing on Forest Road 525 for another 10 miles. Like at Palatki, visitors will need a Red Rocks Pass to park and should call ahead. The site closes daily at 6PM. read more about Honanki

New Age thinkers interested in basking in the radiance of swirling spiritual energy come from all over the world to experience the vortexes of Sedona. So what is a vortex anyway? People witness vortexes all the time, in the swirling of whirlpools and the twirling of dust devils. Instead of vortexes of water and air, it is believed that vortexes of spiritual energy spiral away from some particular alignments in the red rocks rising from the earth. Cathedral Rock, Boynton Canyon, and Bell Rock are among the most famous sites for experiencing vortexes. read more about Energy Vortexes

Tlaquepaque

Tlaquepaque

This open-air shopping center is modeled after a picturesque Mexican village and named after the artisan suburb outside Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. In Sedona, Tlaquepaque happens to be one of the top tourist attractions in town, drawing a steady stream of visitors to the sprawling, hacienda-like structure lined with cobblestone and decorated with whimsical statuary and fountains. You'll find dozens of high-end galleries, jewelry stores, boutiques, restaurants, and a small chapel. The stucco walls are covered over with crawling vines and flower pots are tucked into every corner and decorative terrace. Undoubtedly one of the more romantic shopping centers in town, Tlaquepaque is also a working artisan community where you may catch a glimpse of artists at work.
