There’s a reason people flock to Phoenix in the winter. While the city hosts roughly 44 million visitors throughout the year, with their year round golf and Major League Baseball’s Spring Training, the biggest draw for visitors is of course, the sun. Along with the much needed winter heat, other major draws include the beautiful mountain views, the shopping, museums, and entertainment and dining opportunities.
But where do the locals of Phoenix head when they want that quick getaway. Where are the hidden gems when the locals need a break from the snowbirds and want to get away from the hustle and bustle to just simply be?
Head about two hours north of the city and you just might find yourself transformed from a city dweller to a more spiritual being. Most people who come to the Sedona Verde Valley region are taken not by only the breathtaking landscape but also by a heightened sense of spirituality, thanks to the four energy vortexes that can be experienced in the area. Vortexes are conducive to healing, meditation, and self-exploration.
If you want to explore the vortexes, or just soak up the Red Rock scenery, why not book a reservation at Verde Valley RV Resort. The accommodations here offer something a little different too. Of course, tent and RV sites are available, but why not consider a cabin, cottage, or even a tiny house for this transformative trip.
The cabins have amazing canyon views and covered porches and offer kitchenettes and flat-screen TVS. The cottages have private bedrooms, full-size refrigerators, and flat-screen TVS. And the tiny houses, Finn and Rose, are two of the best tiny houses you can find for a desert adventure.
Tiny Houses Finn and Rose both offer queen beds in the sleeping loft, a kitchen with an electric stove top, mini fridge with freezer, coffeemaker, microwave, toaster and cooking and dining utensils. Both are furnished with a futon for additional sleeping space and have a private shower/toilet/sink combo. Plus, they each have a cozy firepit outside for nighttime socializing.
The resort itself is the perfect desert oasis, surrounded by the mountains and situated along the Verde River. Learn something new and try your hand on the resort’s pickleball court. Or relax creekside with your fishing pole and see what’s biting. There are also horseshoes, volleyball, a pool and spa, and hiking and biking trails. Visit the neighboring winery, Alcantara Vineyards and enjoy a tour or a tasting or head into Sedona for some shopping.
Of course, if you really want to make this a truly transformative trip, check out the vortexes. Cathedral Rock and Bell Rock are two that can be found in the Red Rocks and are said to produce remarkable energy. Check out one of the several vortex tours offered.
Book your stay at Verde Valley RV Resort and experience the Sedona Verde Valley region – you’ll return to Phoenix with a renewed spirit!
