My wife, two boys (13 and 11) and I will be making our first trip to Arizona this Easter weekend. We will fly into Tucson on Good Friday and leave there to come to Sedona the day after Easter and will be there for two nights before we move on to the Grand Canyon. We will arrive in Sedona around 2 since it is a three and half hour drive from Tucson.
Are there any must stops from Tucson to Sedona besides the Montezuma Castle?
We are staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Oak Creek. So for the first afternoon I figured we try walking down the street a little to do a hike since it appears Bell Rock is close. Is this nice? Is there a certain trail we should do?
On our next and final day the only thing we have scheduled is A Day in the West Lil Rattler jeep tour at 5 pm. I'm hoping to see a nice sun set during the tour but is there a suggestion for one the day before? Everyone talks about the airport sunset but it sounds like it will be extremely crowded.
Other than that, are there any other suggestions? Would like to do another hike away from the Oak Creek area.
