Romance… A word that many people daydream about. It doesn’t only happen in movies, novels, or poetry (Of course, you would know this). You can have that extra special romantic getaway with your lover in Sedona, Arizona, if you wish. It can be as memorable as you want it to be provided that you have the right checklist.
To plan the perfect romantic getaway in Sedona, you will need to know the main attractions that are open to visitors. Keep in mind that there are hiking trails, historical sites, and art galleries in the area. Will you be able to experience most of these features in just 48 hours? Yes… All you need is a well-planned schedule. Learn from the tips below.
You can both lodge at the Alma de Sedona Inn a night before this day. Have breakfast, rest, and head out for a hiking trip. Based on your preferences and experience in hiking, you can make a choice out of the available trails. There is The West Fork Trail and Fay Canyon Trail. The latter is easier to pass than the former.
The West Fork Trail has the Oak Creek, red rock canyons, pools, etc. On the other hand, Fay Canyon Trail offers amazing views of oak and juniper forests, rock cliffs, as well as a canyon. Whichever one you choose, you will still have amazing views.
Later, you can both visit the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village to shop for Mexican and Native American crafts. Your sightseeing adventure continues here, and it is easy to lose track of time. The romantic mood is set with cobbled stone paths, stucco arches, water fountains, and sycamore trees. Some of the best restaurants to eat at in the evening while in Tlaquepaque include the El Rincon Mexican Restaurant, Rene Restaurants, etc.
Variety is the spice of life, so it won’t be a bad idea to eat breakfast at the Wildflower Bread Company instead of the Alma de Sedona Inn. They serve meals such as pancakes, sandwiches, protein bowls, dessert, etc. This will make you and your significant other get energized for a trip to the Palatki Heritage Site. There, you will learn about Sedona’s rich culture, history, and art. If you cannot get enough of the crafts, you can go on to visit any of the several art galleries and shops in the city.
Dinner can be had at the Elote Café. They serve some Mexican and Southwest American culinary delights. Finalize this day with the highlight of the whole journey—stargazing. The city’s lack of light pollution, high altitude, and clear weather makes it one of the best locations in the world to do this. It will be just the two of you holding hands or cuddling at great stargazing spots like Doe Mountain or Baldwin Trailhead.
You may not be able to get enough of Sedona because the place has so many attractions. Tourists could stay for days, and still not be able to experience all the surprises the small city has to offer. Still, 48 hours is enough to have the best of moments with your partner. You can both keep it short and sweet, right?
