Why Spend Your Spring in Sedona?
While the Spring can be chilly in most parts of Northern Arizona, Sedona often hosts a more desirable climate for many of your outdoor excursions. Sure there lots of hiking trails, water holes, restaurants, shopping, art culture and more. Here are a few more reasons we like Sedona in the Spring!
The spring weather in the Sedona area is commonly known to be consistent and amazing. With averages resting comfortably in the low 80’s, the days are still cool enough to be spent enjoying the great outdoors and nights are still warm enough to see some more. If 80 degrees sounds too hot for you, don’t worry! There are tons of indoor activities and even some refreshing outdoor ones. You can raft, tube, and kayak in the Oak Creek or simple swim at #SlideRock State Park, one of Sedona’s most famous kid-friendly locations.
Adventure comes in all shapes, sizes, and budgets in #Sedona. Hiking trails stretch across the idyllic landscape. This expansive free trail system give you and your family access to almost all of Sedona’s famous sites, including #CourthouseRock and Cathedral Rock. Short hikes can be taken to view points and longer, more intense hikes can take you to the top of some of Sedona’s best known places. For folks who aren’t mobile, there are many places to pull off the road and soak in the scenery either from the comfort of your car, or benches placed throughout the pull-outs.
Many of Sedona’s most popular events occur during the springtime. The Sedona Marathon and the Yoga Festival happen in February, but the Mountain Bike Festival isn’t until March.
