The Ultimate Guide to a Girls Weekend in Sedona

March 23rd, 2018

Last month, a few friends and I traveled to Sedona to celebrate my friend Abby‘s bachelorette party. For all of us it was our first time to visit, and aside from the beautiful scenery, we really didn’t know what to expect. What we discovered was a mystical, magical hippie wonderland that was — albeit sort of sleepy — loads of fun. We ate, we drank, we hiked, we loled — what more could you really want from a girls’ weekend?

    My husband and I visited Sedona in December and fell in with the town!!! I would add another must eat to your list, Hideaway House, the food is spectacular and the views are amazing, especially at sunset.

    The Devil’s Bridge hike was our favorite of the week.

    I would also recommend making the drive up to Flaggstaff, driving through the canyons and then up the side of the mountain was spectacular.

    And plenty of vineyards and breweries within 40-60 minutes of Sedona!

    I can’t wait to go back.

    The Enchantment Resort, world renowned, is the place to stay with the equally famous Mi Amo spa.

    Star gazing with an outfit of professionals (with powerful telescopes) was a highlight of my Sedona trip last fall!

  5. I live in Flagstaff and I go down to Sedona all the time (I was just trail running there this morning!). Don’t be sad you missed out on Devils Bridge. It’s beautiful, but crowds there have seriously gotten out of control. Since I moved here 4 years ago, the traffic on that trail has probably quadrupled. 🙁 If you don’t mind crowds (or you’re willing to get up super early), it’s beautiful, but there are plenty of other equally wonderful views to be had and honestly it’s not worth dealing with the crowds anymore. You can’t go wrong with just about any hike in the area, but some other great ones are Bear Mountain (strenuous), Fay Canyon (super easy), Mescal (moderate, make it a loop by connecting to Deadmans Pass and Long Canyon), and West Fork (easy to moderate, popular and costs $10 but GORGEOUS; be prepared for small creek crossings).

    For especially adventurous ladies, there are LOADS of places to trail run, mountain bike, or even ATV! And I agree with commenter Kim above, the drive up (or down) 89A between Sedona and Flagstaff is one of my favorite drives in the world. Even after 4 years, I never get tired of it.

  6. My husband and I got married at the L’Auberge de Sedona last month, and it was so magical! Sedona is hands down my favorite US getaway!

    We live in Prescott Valley (45 minutes from Sedona) and it’s our go to place for a day trip get-away, special occasions at Mariposa restaurant and quick hikes. I also have the opportunity to work in Sedona but NEVER take the natural beauty for granted. PS> On your next visit, take a side trip to Jerome. It’s an old mining town near Sedona with many specialty shops and restaurants.
