Bloomberg Business Week has released their list of the "Top 50 Cities" for 2012.  As one of the more popular hotels in Sedona, we here at the Southwest Inn at Sedona were not surprised to see 4 of Arizona's cities making the list:

Here in Sedona we get visitors from all over the world every day, but you might be surprised to learn that a lot of our visitors are from other areas of Arizona. People come to Sedona for:

  1. its unique climate and terrain.
  2. they come for the perfect weather and the glorious views.
  3. they come to see and hike all the red rocks around the area.
  4. Sedona is a unique place in this world and you don't have to be too far away to appreciate it.
  5. In most of arizona you are not able to just walk to the creek and go for a swim.
  6. The phoenix area reaches temeratures of 125, so its nice that they have a beautiful place so close by.
We congratulate Phoenix, Chandler, Gilbert and Scottsdale for making Bloomberg's list of top cities in America.  Please give us a call, and we will show you why the Southwest Inn at Sedona has become a "home away from home" for many of Arizona's residents.

Hiking Sedona's Thunder Mtn. from Southwest Inn-"E" Book

 

thunder mtn resized 600Hiking on Thunder Mtn. (yes, it is the "real" Thunder Mtn., which inspired Walt Disney) is one of the most popular hikes in Sedona, Az.  Although there are many hotels in Sedona that offer tips on how to get there, only the Southwest Inn at Sedona has gone to the trouble (well not real trouble--in fact we had a lot of fun) to publish a step by step "E" Book on Hiking Thunder Mtn.

Hiking Thunder Mtn. "E" Book

There are many reasons why you will want to download this book, and take the hike around Thunder Mtn:

  1. It is close to the western gateway of Sedona, just off of Dry Creek road, which is also the access to the wilderness canyons.
  2. It is a relatively short hike, with a few steep climbs (not counting the Summit).
  3. It is very scenic.
  4. You get 360 degree views of Sedona.
  5. It is hard to get lost with our "E" Book, however--how can one be lost if they do not care where they are?

If you would like more information on the Thunder Mtn. hike, or any one of the other hikes in Sedona, please give the Southwest Inn at Sedona a call for information:  800-483-7422.

See you out on the trails.
