This kicks off our new series: 3 Reasons to Roll! Quick reads with top reasons to visit a destination. Our first installment: 3 Reasons to Roll to Sedona Arizona!
RollerbagMom and I recently rolled to Sedona, Arizona…and had an incredible time. You should check it out. Here’s why.
Here are 3 Reasons to Roll to Sedona:
1. The views
The scenic views in Sedona are truly astounding.
If you’re parking and walking as you drive through the region, you’ll want to buy a park pass, but it’s worth it. And if you can swing it, arrive in town near sunset to catch the red rocks at their most stunning!
2. The hiking
There are so many options for hiking in and around Sedona, no matter what your skill level, you’re bound to find something that’s right for you. Whether you want to explore the famous Chapel of the Holy Cross (a semi-tough hike up a steep incline from the parking area, but there are golf carts you can catch a lift on!), the famous energy vortexes, or the many top-rated hikes through the red rocks, there are so many places to get your walk on.
Prefer urban hiking? Yeah, me too. There’s tons of shops to explore in town, including great rock shops, plus loads of places to catch a cool drink, which brings me to my next reason to roll to Sedona….
3. Elote Cafe
Elote Cafe ALONE is reason enough to head to Sedona. The food is epic – I mean, I will never forget these vegan enchiladas, made with quinoa, pecans and beans, topped with guacamole and pickled onions and of course, corn. Wow. The photo totally does not do it justice.
Mom had the fish tacos, which she loved.
You can expect a wait at Elote Cafe. But there’s a reason: it’s worth it.
Did I mention there’s a register just for drink orders, so you can nab a margarita and some popcorn while you wait! Oh, the margaritas….can I get four reasons to roll?
Sedona is Totally Roll-Worthy
There you have it, 3 Reasons to Roll to Sedona! Whether you’re flying into to Phoenix or Tucson and looking for a scenic road trip, or exploring the beautiful state of Arizona, you’re sure to love Sedona! For many, many reasons.
