Reasons Why Sedona is Amazing and Underrated
The Beauty: This is number one for obvious reasons. The first time you step foot in Sedona you are taken away. The brain can’t quite comprehend all of the amazing scenery that the eye is taking in. It just might leave you jaw-dropping speechless for a minute. The red rocks and blue skies are just stunning and many an amazing photo has come from Sedona, but they just don’t compare at all to being there in person. Look up #Sedona on Instagram, it’s a thing.
Best Climate in the State of Arizona: There is many a meme about the intense Arizona heat. In Sedona, because of its higher elevation, the temperatures are much milder than the typical sea level Arizona temps most people think of. It does still get toasty in the summer and there is snow in winter, but Spring and Fall are near perfect for enjoying the outdoors.
