5 Reasons to Spend a Month in Sedona

We’ve all experienced returning home from a weekend getaway, or even a week-long vacation, feeling like it just wasn’t enough. After the travel time, settling in to your vacation home, visiting the top recommended destination attractions, ticking off TripAdvisor’s best restaurants, and finally figuring out the lay of the land – it’s already time to go home!

So much has changed since the pandemic and the flexibility we have as individuals, families, employees and business owners to work remotely, travel outside of peak seasons (or approved vacation times), and take a break from the daily grind for extended periods of time is unprecedented.

Whether you’re using up accrued paid time off, enjoying the freedom of retirement, taking advantage of remote work, or indulging in a mini wellness sabbatical in the red rock mountains, there’s no better place to escape the routine and take a break than Sedona and the scenic Verde Valley. There’s so much to see and do in Sedona and Verde Valley – you can spend an entire month hiking the trails alone!
