That includes one of Kathy Rudolph Petrino’s favorite destinations is actually one of the world’s best-kept secrets; the small Arizona town of Sedona.
Over the years, Sedona has grown in popularity, but many travelers don’t go because they assume it’s too trendy, which usually translates to expensive. Despite that reputation, Kathy Rudolph Petrino lets her readers know it’s possible to see Sedona without shelling out the big bucks. There are many great things to see and do, so it’s really helpful for travelers to know how to do things on the cheap. Sedona is simply worth seeing. Just walking the streets can be a great experience, as Downtown Sedona is where most of the nicest shops and restaurants are, and it is a relatively small area, which can be helpful in summer, when temperatures often top 100 degrees. Of course, a trip to Sedona has to include a visit to one of city's famous “vortexes.” A while back, the city went through a big New Age movement and the movement designated four spots - Bell Rock, Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock, and Boynton Canyon - as “vortexes” for spiritual reasons. It is believed they can facilitate prayer, meditation, and healing.
