Sedona in the Fall

Overview

Sedona is beautiful. As you drive into Sedona after leaving highway 17, you pass through the most beautiful rock formations. They appear so close to you as you drive by. All we kept saying to each other was "This is amazing". We arrived at sunset which amplifies the redness of the rocks. When we left Sedona 7 days later on this same road, there was a rainbow over the rocks. Truly God’s magnificence showed through the whole time! The absolute highlight of our trip to Sedona was the broken arrow pink jeeps tour. If you do nothing else, do this!We also took a trip to the Grand Canyon, including a fun time on the Grand Canyon Railway. Take the white knuckle drive up the hairpin turns of r...Read More

Arroyo Roble

Arroyo Roble sits on Highway 89A, the main route between Sedona and Flagstaff on the banks of Oak Creek. Unfortunately, it sits down in a valley where one cannot see the Red Rocks except along the driveway. Very few units are actually on Oak Creek. Despite those limitations, the resort is very nice.We were in Unit 1222, a townhouse in the middle of a group of eight. Parking is not convenient to it so you have to use a 10 minute unloading space in the driveway. The unit is two floors. It is rather dark at all times since the windows are only in the front and back and there are shade trees all around the unit.You walk into a foyer which leads to the living room. You need to take two step...Read More

Oaxaca Restaurante & Cantina

Restaurant | "Oaxaca Restaurante & Cantina"

Oaxaca Restaurant was one of the places that our resort had given us a card for a 10 percent discount. On the night we returned from the Grand Canyon, we needed a place close by and still open so we chose Oaxaca.In Connecticut, we have several Mexican restaurants which we frequent. Frankly, we expected better in Arizona. Sad to say, we were not impressed with the food or the service. The variety of food available is quite large. There is everything from Eggs Oaxaca, basically an omelette with jack and cheddar cheese covered with green chile sauce to enchiladas, salads and tacos. Jim chose a beef enchilada and I asked for a combo of beef taco and cheese and onion enchilada. Unfor...Read More

The most reviewed restaurant on this site for Sedona was the Coffee Pot so we knew we had to try it. Try it we did and returned just about every morning after. It is that good! The name for the restaurant comes from the fact that it is situated beneath the rock formation that looks like an old time coffee percolator. There is always a tough time to find a parking space, which is a good indication to me. Most days there was a short wait, the worst wait being Sunday morning. That was a half an hour wait but we shopped in the gift shop while we waited. (We were told that the owner searches for unique items to sell in this store from as far away as Italy.)The outside of the restaurant is ...Read More

Definitely try to sit outside on the patio. They have spray that comes out at the edge of the eating area misting the whole area so you stay cool. The view is worth it. Plus you are entertained by the passersby!The food and service here are great.Lunch is served 11am to 4pm and dinner from 5 to 10pm.We went there for dinner right at five. There was already a line of people without reservations, including us! We were let in in a few minutes and sat on the patio. After we ordered, we received a complimentary appetizer from the chef. A nice touch!I had the awesome tenderloin filet with blue cheese butter! Yummy!Jim had the porterhouse and loved it.The bill with tax a...Read More

First of all, let me state that if you do not do anything else while in Sedona, please do the Pink Jeep Broken Arrow tour. It is so much fun and is a totally amazing experience. For more info, go to www.pinkjeep.com.Prices are $72.00 per adult and $54.00 per child. We booked the two hour tour at 4pm which in the fall ends at almost sunset. Our driver, Sophia, picked us up at our resort. There were seven passengers altogether, Jim and I, a newly married couple from Pittsburgh, and a set of grandparents and their granddaughter from Ohio. Sophia told us to buckle up and be aware that we were all going to get cozy....Read More
