Sedona Easter Services
If you plan to attend Easter services, Sedona and the surrounding area has several churches. Many will be holding special Easter services, including sunrise services, to mark the day. Contact your choice of church and inquire about dates, times, and locations for services to plan your schedule.
Celebrate Easter in Sedona with a delicious brunch. Select restaurants in and around Sedona will be serving the traditional Easter meal. Contact your restaurant of choice and ask about reservations, as well as the availability of pick up or delivery to your accommodations so you can enjoy the meal without the fuss of preparation or large crowds.
Steal some adults-only time during your Easter escape. Sedona’s unique climate of desert heat during the day and low northern Arizona temperatures at night make it an ideal environment for winemaking. These conditions have attracted over 20 wineries to call Sedona home. Take a guided tour of the many wineries along the Valley Verde Wine Trail or explore each on your own. Whichever you choose, make sure you have safe transportation between venues.
Verde Canyon Railroad
Bob and weave the red rocks on a special tour. The Verde Canyon Railroad is available any time of year and is a fun way to sightsee. Stick to your seat for the duration of the trip or head to an open-air viewing platform for a better view of the breathtaking red rock and pine forest scenery. This Easter, enjoy the red rock views as well as a visit with the Easter Bunny. Meet the bunny, take a guess at the jellybean contest, and fill your Easter basket with treats. Get your picture taken, and then wave goodbye to the bunny as the train leaves the station for sightseeing, a presentation to the winner of the jellybean contest, and more. The event takes place Saturday, April 16. Festivities at the depot start at 11:30 am, and the train departs the station promptly at 1 pm. Admission to the depot is free, and the train ride is $109/person.
Leave the car and the road behind. Many companies in and around Sedona offer horseback riding tours in the fashion of Arizona’s “Old West” heritage. Take off on a guided horseback ride and learn about the area’s flora and fauna, the mountains, and the history of the land. Bring your camera and capture the wonder of breathtaking panoramic views and thrilling terrain like the Verde Valley, Sedona Red Rocks, and other landmarks. You can even go as far as the San Francisco Peaks of Flagstaff.
Red Rock Scenic Byway
After seeing the sights while winding and weaving your way through the red rocks or on horseback, get in your rental car for a more direct route. You’ll want to plan several hours of your day for these ten short miles of sightseeing. The Red Rock Scenic Byway (SR-179) takes you on a short trip that can last all day. The byway itself is a short drive, but you can spend hours at the many scenic pull-off points along the route. Gaze out over the towering red rocks of Arizona’s beautiful Red Rock Country. Go during the day for spectacular views from every angle or take a sunset cruise for a unique added glow. While you’re out, don’t forget to stop by the Coconino National Forest visitor’s center for maps of hiking and biking trails you may want to check out along the way.
