When I visited Sedona last year, I went to an outdoor market at the Oak Creek Factory Outlets. There was a man who had a table of sterling silver jewelry. His jewelry did not tend to be Native American. He had some very nice dragonfly charms and pendants. I know this is a shot in the dark, but I'm wondering if anyone might be familiar with him. I would like to purchase a piece of his jewelry. He told me he lived in Arizona, but not Sedona. He is a silversmith., but he had retired from another profession.
I'm traveling to Sedona in mid April and would like to stay for a week. I am there for a conference but would like to bring my family as well. Does anyone know a good place to stay in a cabin or vacation rental that is reasonably priced and close to everything?
Finally knocking one off my bucket list. A photo weekend in Sedona, AZ. I've got Tlaquepaque, Bell Rock, Courthouse Bute, Red Rock Crossing, Holy Cow, Airport Mesa and Gold King covered but am looking for any advice from folk that have been there or live there for "insider must do" activities or places to photograph. In looking at past VT comments Montezuma's Well seems to come up. Still researching what I can cover in the limited long weekend I'll have there in early May this year.

I am planning a trip to northern Arizona in May, over Memorial Day weekend. Arriving Phoenix on a Thursday night, and departing in the afternoon on the following Wednesday. This gives me about 5.5 days of traveling in the area. I wish to visit Sedona, Grand Canyon, and anything else I might be able to accomplish during these 5.5 days. However, I am not familiar what how much time (days/nights) are needed to see and do what's available. Regarding Sedona, I am trying to figure out what there is to see and do, and how much time is required. Traveling is my Mother and I, just the two of us. We like to be kept busy and see and do a lot when traveling. Generally on trips, we get up early and keep busy and active seeing and doing things till as late as possible. We can often accomplish quite a bit in a day, or even a short trip. Since Mom is 69, we are probably not interested in a lot of hiking, but some walks is fine. She's active, good health, can accomplish a lot, but nothing too tiring.
I've read on some sites where some people can plan to spend 5 days in Sedona. In fact, I have cousins there now who are there for a month. But, we just have 5.5 days, and wish to see other sights such as the Grand Canyon too, and maybe some other place as well. I am looking for possible suggestions, and itineraries on how and where we should spend our days. Any help is greatly appreciated.
I'll be in Sedona alone for a couple of days this weekend, about to celebrate my 50th birthday, and I don't really want to just follow the tourist routine. I'd like to spend my time refreshing my spirit a bit before starting on the next 50 years,but, due to asthma problems, I might not be able to hike very far. I DO want to spend a generous part of my time there outdoors, though. Suggestions, anyone?
I will be in the Village of Oak Creek Sedona (Arizona) from 17 Sept - 26 Sept and need a recommendation of a good, cheap hotel and good value tours that will include Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Four Corners, Canyon de Chelly and the Hopi Mesas. Does anyone have experience in this area? I don't want to self-drive - on my own and wrong side of the road for me !!!
We are scheduled to be in Sedona July 4th and the week following. Are there any fireworks going on in the area?
Also, our 13 year old son broke his collarbone, so his arm is in a sling, meaning limited activity. Is the Pink Jeep Tour really bumpy and a lot of jerking around, or is it relatively tame? I've read some reviews that say it is downright dangerous offroad driving, in which case I would not take my son on it. Also, I need some ideas for activities he can participate in; horseback riding, kayaking, etc. are out, as is swimming. Any good museums or caves/caverns in the are? Are there any lakes near Sedona where you can rent a pontoon boat?
