Best Grand Canyon River Trip
Submitted by M20309
While the big motorized rafts offer a cheaper trip through Grand Canyon, rafts that are rowed with oars offer a more exciting ride. And they actually have a better safety record than the big rafts. Arizona Raft Adventures in Flagstaff and OARS both offer smaller rafts.
Best Way To See Northern Arizona
Submitted by M20309
When visiting the scenic wonders of Northern Arizona, do not use just one base. The attractions are too far apart, so plan to move around. For example: 2 days in Sedona, 2 days in Flagstaff, 2 days at Grand Canyon, 2 day at Lake Powell, and 1 day at Monument Valley.

Getting to Flagstaff, AZ
Submitted by M20112
The best and cheapest place to fly into Arizona is Phoenix, AZ. (PHX) The most convenient place to fly into is Flagstaff, AZ or Prescott, AZ. We are able to pick people up from the airports, but Arizona Shuttle offers great shuttles to and from these airports. They charge around $40 each way from Phoenix and this is two hours away so this is a pretty good price. We can pick you up from the airport, but there will be a fee more than with Arizona Shuttle. Hope to see you in the Southwest!

The town of Kanab, Utah provides the most central location for day trips to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
Best Clothing
Submitted by M18406
One of the major attractions of Sedona is its year-round mild temperatures. All four seasons offer a lot of sun and great weather conditions for enjoying the most beautiful scenery in America. We recommend bringing clothes you can easily layer. Mornings and evenings are often much cooler than mid-day. Dress is very casual everywhere in Sedona.
Sedona Nature Spirit Walk Preparation
Submitted by M16877
If you are coming to Sedona to experience our world famous Red Rocks and spectacular scenic vistas, here are some tips:

1. The air is dry here - bring your favorite lip balm
2. Sunscreen & snazzy Hat - though it may be 'cool' (that's a relative term here in Arizona) during the 'winter' months - the sun is still strong. We are at around 5000 ft in altitude and you will get extra sun on you.
3. Footwear - if you are a hiker or walker at home, bring what's comfortable for you - ... view more that could be sports sandals in summer and comfortable walking - hiking shoes in 'winter'.
4. Small Hip pack - one you can carry a water bottle or two in and a snack. There's something special about arriving at a fantastic vista of Red Rock Grandeur, watching a sunset and having something to snack on - makes the walk complete.
