When I arrived in Sedona, surrounded by the towering red rock formations, I knew this day would be special. I wanted to start my day on the right foot, so I headed to the Red Rock Café. It was a charming spot known for its delicious breakfast and breathtaking views. I ordered The Red Rock Scramble. It was terrific with eggs, spinach, feta, and sun-dried tomatoes. 

Exploring the Vortex Energy

Sedona is renowned for its vortex energy and is widely believed to enhance spiritual and healing experiences. I came prepared with a map of vortex locations and set out on a morning hike to Cathedral Rock. The serene beauty and the vortex’s subtle energy already made me feel connected to the earth and rejuvenated. My skin was almost buzzing after I left the vortex.

Fellow Traveler Tip: Research vortex locations and choose one that aligns with your energy and interests.

After that, I wandered through Tlaquepaque, a charming arts and shopping village inspired by traditional Mexican architecture. The cobblestone paths, vibrant galleries, and boutique shops had an almost artistic flair. 

Southwestern Flavors for Lunch

For lunch, I decided to try some of the flavors of the Southwest at The Cowboy Club. I was feeling famished by lunchtime. The cactus fries and the Bison Burger are just two of Sedona’s staple dishes I tried, and I highly recommend them.

I booked a Pink Jeep Tour to explore Sedona’s mesmerizing land formations like Bell Rock and Chapel of the Holy Cross. The tour guide was knowledgeable and navigated the rugged terrain with ease. The ride provided a different perspective of Sedona’s beauty and got some adrenaline pumping.

Fellow Traveler Tip: Taking a guided tour is the best way to see all Sedona offers.

As the day turned to night, I went to Airport Mesa for a sunset meditation. Watching the sun setting on the red rock horizon positioned on the vortex site left me with a sense of peace. It was the perfect way to reflect on the day. 

Evening Dining with a View

For dinner, I chose The Hudson, perched on a hill with a full view of Sedona. I tried the butternut squash ravioli, which was fresh and light and did not disappoint. The delicious food and the city lights below made the dining experience unique and unforgettable.
