First Time Visit to Sedona, AZ

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are retired and love to travel. We primarily cruise and have visited many interesting places in the world. This time around we are contemplating a trip to visit the southwest part of USA. I have started preliminary research on a trip to Sedona as we have never been there and it is on my wish list. We would have to fly to Phoenix, rent a car and drive to Sedona (I understand it is a 2 hr. drive). I am looking for lodging for approx. 12 days and have been focusing on Sedona area. I have found a golf resort in West Sedona that looks nice and would fit our needs. My husband is a golfer so would like to do some golfing. The resort I have looked at is "Ridge on Sedona Golf" (Ridge on Sedona Golf Resort Hotel), reviews are very good, it is about 15 min. from Sedona and the accommodations seem to be what we are looking for. We are going to rent a car at PHX airport and drive to Sedona. We would also like to explore other areas. We have been to the GC North Rim so have already seen that but would not be opposed to driving to the south rim. I would possibly like to see an Indian reservation while we are there. Any suggestions would be most appreciated from all.

We are planning to go 2/1-2/12 (can be a bit flexible in dates) but mainly looking for a winter escape from the cold and snow of New England). Thanks everyone.
