If you need a getaway with your sweetie that includes a breath of fresh mountain air, beautiful red rock, and a pine forest like no other, make Sedona your next romantic getaway. There are a wide variety of fun and romantic activities Sedona has to offer to keep you busy and experiencing everything there is to do while you’re in town for a romantic Sedona getaway.
Sedona is home to over 20 wineries. The heat of a desert day plus the lower temperatures of a northern Arizona night equals a great environment for winemaking. Take a tour of many of the wineries along the Valley Verde Wine Trail. You can book special tours or choose your own path. Whichever you choose, make sure the driver is unimpaired.
Relax and unwind together with a soothing massage that releases stress and tension. The spa at Amara Resort has a special treatment room just for couples. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a hotel guest to use the spa. Enjoy the couple’s room and one of their most popular massages, including a classic Swedish massage, a massage using CBD oil, or a deep-tissue massage using heated basalt stones.
Steakhouse 89 is a great place for a romantic meal with the one you love. Their menu is seasonal and includes tasty offerings like jumbo shrimp cocktail or prime meatballs, or a selection of soups and salads to keep your hunger at bay while you wait for your main course. Try the seared red snapper or New England pan-seared scallops. If “turf” is more to your taste, try the New York Strip steak or wood-fired rotisserie prime rib. For a different cut of meat consider the wood fired grilled rack of lamb, red rock pressed chicken, or their Classic 89’ Burger. End the night on a sweet note with house made ice cream, 89 Cheesecake, or crème brulee.
Verde Canyon Railroad
Take a scenic tour of the area and leave the driving to someone else. Available any time of year, the Verde Canyon Railroad is a fun way to see the area and escape the elements. If you and your love are in the area for a romantic Valentine’s getaway, the train offers a “Chocolate Lovers’ Special” during the week of Valentine’s Day. There’s a champagne toast upon boarding, full-service cash bars with premium liquor choices, and complimentary appetizers served at your seat. Set out onto an open-air viewing platform for a better view of the red rock and pine forest scenery. If you enjoy your ride, there are other themed rides are available throughout the year, too.
Sound Bites Grill
Grab something to eat while you take in live music from area musicians. They have several “no cover” music performances like Wineaux Wednesday’s – live music and wine tasting event, Chill on the Hill Thursday’s, We Made It Friday’s, Showtime Saturday’s and Jazz Brunch Sunday’s. Check out their calendar to see who’s playing and what’s special on the menu.
Red Rock Scenic Byway
Take a romantic drive along the Red Rock Scenic Byway (SR 179). The byway is a short ten miles long, but you can spend hours together at the many scenic pull-off points as you gaze out over the towering red rocks of Red Rock Country. The scenery is beautiful any time of day but watching the reds and golds of sunset shine on the red rocks below is beauty you don’t want to miss. Drive through the pine forests of the Coconino National Forest and visit the forest visitor center for maps of biking and hiking trails.
Take a scenic tour of the area and leave the driving – flying – to someone else. See the colorful red rock landscape of Sedona and the surrounding area from a bird’s eye view. You’ll see popular landmarks like the famous Chapel of the Holy Cross, Three Nuns Rock, Snoopy Rock, Steamboat Rock, and more. Packages vary by tour company, with rides as short as 15 minutes all the way to 55 minutes of air time. Ask about transportation to and from your accommodations.
