I took my first trip to Sedona with my family ten years ago. From the moment we arrived, I was absolutely in love, and it remains one of my favorite places to visit (and where I hope to someday retire!).
The red rocks are the main attraction in Sedona. There, we took a Jeep tour, which is a fun (and bumpy) way to see the sites up close. The tour allowed us to get to areas that are off limits for hikers and gave us the opportunity to experience breathtaking views.
Another great place we found in Sedona was the Chapel of the Holy Cross, which sits nestled among the red rocks. From its perch, it gives a great opportunity to see some of the other well-known formations, including Bell Rock and Cathedral Rock.
Sedona also offers amazing artwork and jewelry from artisans who flock to the area. I always find something new and unique to bring home when I visit, and need to leave room in my suitcase for my finds!
So until my retirement, when I hope to take up permanent residence, Sedona will remain at the top of my list of vacation destinations, and the place I personally believe to be the most beautiful in the country.
