A Perfect Long Weekend With Friends (Complete Itinerary)

A Perfect Long Weekend With Friends (Complete Itinerary)

Planning a trip to Sedona, Arizona? Here’s our day-to-day itinerary with lodging, restaurants, and hikes.

My high school friends and I have gotten together once a year, every year, for the last 25 years (2020 was the only year that derailed us).

Mostly we meet at each other’s houses, going for walks, eating out, and reconnecting.

This year we spent a dreamy weekend in Sedona, where our Winter blahs were melted away by the Arizona sun.

A few important points about our itinerary:

  • We traveled to Sedona in late-January, when the average monthly temperature is 31-56 degrees F. It was generally cold in the mornings, then warmed up throughout the day. Here are average monthly temperatures in Sedona.
  • We are not partiers. We did not seek out bars or trendy places. So if you’re looking for that, you won’t find it here!
  • We were not on tight budgets. We splurged on a spacious Airbnb that was walkable to shops and restaurants as a treat for our 50th birthdays.
  • We are not hardcore hikers. We wore sneakers or hiking shoes and chose hikes that were easy or moderate.
  • Our Airbnb came with a Red Rocks Pass, which must be displayed in the windshield of your vehicle at certain trails. Here’s where you can buy a Red Rocks Pass.

I hope this gives you some ideas–or at least inspires you to visit this beautiful place too!
