Started as a way to show prospective real estate buyers the natural beauty of the community, today Pink Jeep Tours has a fleet of 63 specially designed tour vehicles built specifically to climb the red rock formations that bring visitors to Sedona from around the world.They offer several tours and combo packages, but for our visit we chose the two hour Broken Arrow Tour.

Hopefully you have read (and enjoyed) my review of our Pink Jeep Broken Arrow tour in Sedona. It was a highlight of our eight day vacation in Northern Arizona. If you don’t have the time or inclination to tour Sedona by jeep, you can still get out and enjoy the sights that make this area of the country so unique.The drive over from Flagstaff is about an hour, give or take. As you head out of Flagstaff on Hwy. 89A you will enter the Coconino National Forest and soon reach the Oak Creek Canyon overlook where you can get out and stretch your legs with a walk to the lookout point at the end of the paved sidewalk. If you arrive in the area in the morning, you will find that the sun is in an...Read More

Restaurant | "Tough to Spend $20 for Breakfast?"

We had a $10 Restaurant.com gift certificate which required spending $20 to get the $10 off. Who would think two hungry adults (who like to eat) would have trouble getting to $20?As we perused the menu, most breakfast meals were between $5.99 and $7.99. What was more impressive were the three breakfast specials including steak n eggs complete with breakfast potatoes or hash browns and toast for just $3.99 when ordered before 11am.Service was very prompt with ice water and hot beverages brought to the table almost immediately . . . coffee for David and hot tea (cranberry/apple) for me as that became my fave on this trip. A little more time with the menu and I settled in on t...Read More

Cowboy Club

Restaurant | "Historical "Must Do" Dining Experience"

Just about everyone who visits Sedona suggests Cowboy Club for at least one meal while in town. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and are conveniently located in the center of it all in the uptown area of Sedona, and practically right across the street from the Pink Jeep Tours' driveway. This made Cowboy Club a natural first choice for lunch after our Saturday afternoon Broken Arrow jeep tour.David was really not very hungry, and I didn't think I was up for a large mid-afternoon meal, so we ordered a club sandwich to share. It was an unusual twist to the typical deli styled three-decker I'm used to seeing. Served on a nice oblong deli type roll, the sandwich had plenty of t...Read More

Restaurant | "Genuine Mexican Dining Experience"

Quote:
After a week in Arizona, it was time to finally enjoy a good Southwestern meal. Mexican restaurants are popular in this part of the country and pretty much a dime a dozen. I had encouraged patience with David especially after our first outing for Mexican food was averted due to a kitchen fire back in Flagstaff. Patience paid off when we selected Oaxaca Restaurant and Cantina in Sedona!After a rather full and tiring day, we were both ready for some adult beverages and strawberry margaritas were the chose de jour. We were a bit sticker shocked at the $8.95 per drink for a 16 oz glass but the margaritas were slushy frozen delights with very good flavor, although a bit weak on the booze. ...Read More

Hotel | "Value Priced - Great Location"

You know how sometimes when you shop based on price, especially with lodging, you really do not know if you're going to be happy with your choice? Going into this particular overnight stay, I was especially concerned because the room rate was about $20 less that others that I found for the same date, and published reviews were somewhat mixed. Once checked in, however, we were very pleased with Sky Ranch Lodge and the location high above the city at the Sedona Airport.This small motel style "lodge" was comprised of approximately 25 four unit buildings, most of which were single level making it especially nice with the low to the ground profile in a place where the unobstructed views beyond...Read More
