Yes, Arizona is the Valentine State because it was admitted to the union on February 14th! How sweet is that?
One of the sweetest spots and popular destination is Sedona. Just the name brings to mind pictures of red colored buttes and mesas. It’s said that Sedona has a special frequency – a vortex or area of concentrated energy rising from the earth. Some believe that the vortexes are a portal for celestial and terrestrial spirits and that there are several that exist around Sedona. Tours to the areas are available.
In recent years Sedona has blossomed into a top destination for those seeking healing, enlightenment, connecting to the universe and themselves. You will find world class spas and wellness centers here along with restaurants that specialize in healthy foods.
While many travel here for serenity others come for the world class hotels, dining and shopping. No matter what your passion is, Sedona can probably fulfill it!
For you adventurers the possibilities are endless! And, if you are RVing to the area, take a look at Rancho Sedona. This RV Park is situated on the Oak Creek, among the shade of cottonwoods and sycamore trees and surrounded by red rock buttes.
Rancho Sedona is open year round and offers digital cable, free wi-fi, full hook ups, concrete patios and a nice laundry room. Activities within walking distance include fishing, hiking, swimming, and mountain biking. Relax in their spa or play a few rounds of golf on the course.
