Summer Staycation in Sedona

by Megan

Last week my family and I had the opportunity to visit beautiful Sedona. It’s less than two hours away, and yet we had never been! One of the resort hotels, Orchards Inn, invited us to spend a couple of nights while we explored the town and enjoyed a relaxing getaway. As the temps in Phoenix climbed higher and higher, we escaped north to Sedona!

Sedona is just about two hours north of Phoenix, and it makes for a great summer staycation! Get out of the heat and go see the red rocks. Check out our adventures!

We left a little later than expected on Monday, because the AC in our car was getting fixed, and we weren’t about to leave without that working! Finally we were on the road, and we arrived in Sedona right at 6pm. And that was good, because Orchards Inn had arranged for us to enjoy dinner at the adjacent Agave89.

After our drive, we were ready for some delicious food, and we were not disappointed! The kids chose their favorites from the kids’ menu, while Daniel and I started with a selection of guacamole.

The bacon, charred poblanos, and cotija cheese (in the middle) was my favorite!

For our meals, I got enchiladas, and Daniel got street tacos. Mine were delicious, and judging by the fact that he cleared his plate, I’d say the street tacos were pretty good too!

And we couldn’t skip dessert! We got both the chocolate cake (because I can never resist chocolate cake) and their caramel chocolate chimichanga.

After dinner we checked into our room. Every room at Orchards Inn has a gorgeous view of the red rocks.

I enjoyed reading a book and watching the stars come out on our private balcony while Daniel got the kids to sleep inside the room.

Orchards Inn Suite

Our spacious room included two Queen beds and a sleeper sofa, a flat screen TV, fireplace, mini fridge, microwave, and tub in the bathroom. It was very roomy, even for the five of us, and when we first entered, the TV was set to a jazz station, and the fireplace was going. I imagine it would be a lovely place to enjoy winter as well!

But as much as we would have loved to have lounged in our room the whole time, we had lots to explore! Click next to see our second day adventures!
