Wednesday morning we woke up, knowing we had to say goodbye to Sedona and head on home. But there were a few more things we needed to see and do before leaving!
First, we enjoyed breakfast again at Agave89, and then we walked up and down the street, checking out the shops and restaurants. The Orchards Inn is located right in the heart of Uptown Sedona, just steps from lots of fun places. We found a geocache behind the store “Scorpion on the Porch,” and the kids took turns holding a snake!
We also found these musical instruments on the sidewalk, ready for anyone to play! Daddy (a music teacher) had to show us how it was really done!
Before checking out and leaving town, we enjoyed an ice cream treat at Canyon Breeze, on their back porch with amazing views of the red rocks!
Then, on our way out of town, we stopped to check out the Chapel of the Holy Cross, a little church built into the side of the rocks. It was some of the best views we enjoyed the whole trip, and Carter loved the tiny church!
Halfway home, we stopped in at Rock Springs Cafe for lunch. It was a perfect stopping point between Sedona and Phoenix, and the food was delicious! I loved my club sandwich.
And their specialty is pie! The boys tried the Tennessee Lemon, and the girls enjoyed the Apple Crumb! Yeah, no pictures of the pie though because, well, we ate it as soon as it arrived!
We had a wonderful staycation, and it was great to get out of the heat of Phoenix for a few days and explore the gorgeous city of Sedona.
I also just saw that Orchards Inn is currently offering a “stay two nights, get a third night free” promotion! That is an awesome deal, so if you’re thinking of going, now is the time!
We can’t wait to go back and visit Sedona again soon!
