Barrett Jackson Scottsdale Hotels in Sedona

 

classic carThe Barrett Jackson car show comes to Scottsdale, AZ every January.  Many of the participants enjoy the scenic drive up to Sedona, AZ, which offers some of the most "interesting drives" in the Southwest.  Many of the Sedona Hotels, like the Southwest Inn at Sedona offer winter specials, so plan your drive up to Sedona to enjoy one of these incredible drives:

  1. describe the imageRather than drive up Interstate 17N, enjoy the scenic drive up Arizona Hwy 87 North.  You will go through the charming towns of Payson, Pine and Strawberry, as you drive through the Saguaro Cactus Forest.  Continue north, until you reach the AZ Hwy 260, which becomes the Zane Grey Highway to Cottonwood.  Then turn north onto AZ HWY 89A and continue to Sedona.
  2. Once in Sedona, you can drive back towards Cottonwood, and then follow 89A up to the historic old mining town of Jerome, where many artists now practice their trade.
  3. Back on 89A, if you are leaving the Southwest Inn at Sedona:  go towards Cottnowood, but turn left at the intersection, outside of town, onto Cornville Road.  Continue until you reach the "old wooden" gas station on Page Springs Road.  Turn left onto Page Springs Road and enjoy the drive and the beauty, as you drive through the wine section of Northern Arizona. 
  4. Driving north, through Sedona, take the 89A up Oak Creek Canyon towards Flagstaff.  You will see why this short highway has been called the most beautiful highway in North America.
  5. Finally, the grandaddy of them all:  take the drive north to the Grand Canyon--what else can we say?grand canyon
