    Upper Red Rock Loop Road

    by ClariceStarling Written May 21, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a few great pull-out spots along Upper Red Rock Loop Road between 89A and Red Rock Crossing/Crescent Moon Ranch. These are good places to go during sunset because you'll see the rock formations to the east lit up like fire.

    Stay at the Healing Center of Arizona

    by loving1 Written Aug 4, 2005

    In the forest surrounded by red rock mountains, intimate, quiet, private, peaceful. Only found in guidebooks like Lonely Planet, Hidden Arizona, Sanctuaries of the Southwest, Paradise Found. Praised by USA Today as the unique place to stay in Sedona. It's five domes where you'll experience the special vortex energy of Sedona. Your room may be full of Indian artifacts, dolphins and whales, jungle birds and animals or the goddess room where all the artwork was done by women who were guests at the Healing Center.

    It's All Here For you To Enjoy

    Scottsdale is a Great Place to Visit

    by deecat Updated Jun 2, 2005

    Before we came to Sedona, we stayed in Scottsdale to attend a wedding. While there, we visited Frank Loyd Wright's winter home, Taliesin West. The architecture certainly blends into its desert surroundings.

    Frank Lloyd Wright came to Scottsdale in 1937 to build this house at the foot of the McDowell Mountains. His school of architecture is also here. These low-slung Taliesin West buildings (stone and redwood beams) symbolize Wright's philosophy that structures should fit into their natural settings. Students at Taliesin West continue to follow in his footsteps. The public is able to visit the gift shop, but the grounds can only be visited on guided tours conducted year around.

    Many other artists followed this famous architect to Scottsdale, and soon Dude ranches started to spring up, and they were soon replaced by world-class resorts.

    It's interesting to note that even Eleanor Roosevelt came to shop here!

    Ironically, Scottsdale used to promote itself as "The West's Most Western Town".

    All that's left of that frontier would be the paintings in the galleries that are clustered along Fifth Avenue.

  • Old Sedona Brewery

    Oak Creek Brewery is an awesome micro-brew, where the beer is actually good.
    There are two in Sedona, go to the old one. There's a really cute beer garten out back with a firepit. The place just has a great vibe overall, very laid back and welcoming. It's a really local scene, and much different than the big money that's all over the rest of Sedona.
    Take 89A south through town, and turn right on Coffeepot Drive, you'll see it.

    Great Views Behind Real Estate Central

    by ClariceStarling Written May 21, 2006

    There is a nice little spot in the back parking lot of Real Estate Central where you can catch some great views of the red rocks. It is located just west of the "Y" on Highway 89A.
