Start with scenery that makes your heart leap. Sedona nestles among a geological wonderland. Multi-hued stone formations jut upwards from the high desert floor creating a vivid, mesmerizing setting that changes hourly with the light. When USA Weekend compiled their Most Beautiful Places in America list, Sedona claimed the top spot.

Surrounded by 1.8 million acres of national forest land, visitors have instant access to recreational activities. Trails for hiking and biking, along with bouncy jeep tracks, weave among the bristling forest of pinnacles, spires, buttes and domes. Yet, you’re never far from the indulgences of town.

Sedona is equal parts rugged, equal parts resort. Regarded by Native Americans as sacred, Sedona continues to be recognized as a place of healing and spiritual renewal. Many come to experience the vortex energy centers of Sedona. Others want to prowl the 40-plus art galleries lining the streets, or to receive soothing treatments from the dozens of spa facilities. Most recently, with its nearby vineyards and tasting rooms, Sedona has emerged as a destination for wine enthusiasts.

Relax and Reconnect

Here’s a simple rule for happiness: Treat yourself as well as you treat your phone.

Soon as you notice your phone running low on energy, the frantic search for an outlet begins. Staying charged seems important these days. Shouldn’t that apply to you as well?

If you’re looking for a place to recharge yourself, there’s no need to do a search on your poor overworked phone. Instead, just head for Arizona. Plug yourself into a place where the landscape is so epic, it startles you, so diverse it overwhelms you. Rediscover wide-open spaces and a way of life you didn’t think existed anymore. Spend time in a place so enchanting it actually draws your eyes away from the screen of your phone, which suddenly seems very, very small.

Start with Sedona, the “Unplug. Connect.” Capitol of Arizona. Sedona has long been recognized as a place of spiritual possibilities, alive with energy and awash in heart-freeing beauty. Shake off the weariness of stress and work amid a bristling forest of red rocks—a setting often called the most spectacular in the country. The Native Americans who once resided here regarded Sedona as a sacred place and nothing has changed down through the centuries.
