June 6, 2016 – Visitor blog submission by Joe Laing
Every woman deserves time away from the daily grind, and bringing along her favorite friends can make that time more memorable. No place else in the world offers the stunning scenery, shops, spas and places to play outdoors that Sedona, Arizona does. Read on to plan the perfect girlfriend getaway in Sedona.
Where to Stay in Sedona
First on the to-do list for planning a girls-only weekend is choosing accommodations. No matter how many friends are coming to Sedona, there’s a perfect place waiting.
Lodging options can include resorts with elite spa services, cabins in the heart of nature or intimate B&Bs. Few cities offer the kind of views that friends can enjoy while sharing a drink on a Sedona terrace.
Once that’s done, it’s time to start planning the weekend’s activities.
Retail Sedona Weekend
As girlfriends gather in Sedona, keeping everyone entertained will be easy. For friends who can’t stop shopping, an excursion to Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village is a good way to launch the weekend. Keep the shopping vibe going with a trip to historic Hummingbird House for gifts and décor.
The fun continues with a jaunt to Son Silver West Gallery for the funky and unusual. A day of shopping in Sedona wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the upscale shops and galleries of Hillside Sedona. And these are only a few of the options for a girlfriends’ shopping weekend.
Outdoors Sedona Weekend
Another way to spend time with a special group of friends in Sedona is to get outdoors. The extraordinary beauty that’s all around the city can be found on the trails that lead through red rock canyons, on scenic drives best made at sunrise or from the seat of a Jeep on the trail to an ancient cliff dwelling.
Sedona Spa Weekend
Sedona’s elite spas suit the town’s reputation as a center of mystical healing by pampering and rejuvenating visitors. A three-day weekend immersed in spa treatments, mindful menus and fitness activities may be just what a group of friends needs to return to the world whole.
Every season is suited for a girlfriend getaway in the sumptuous beauty of Sedona. All it takes to make it happen is deciding where, when and how to indulge the senses.
