I am beginning to plan a vacation to Arizona and I am basically looking for the most picturesque spot to spend a few days. I would most likely be flying into Sky Harbor and then renting a car from there.. Should I be looking at Sedona or are there other area's I should be adding to my list? I am thinking end of October beginning of November because I do not like the heat. Is this an ok time to visit? I don't plan to do much hiking, mainly driving and photo ops. I've been to the Grand Canyon and wouldn't mind making the trip again but I want to see some things that I have not seen and make them a priority. (painted desert?)
I also don't care to stay at an expensive resort. An inexpensive (for the area) clean hotel would do just fine. Perhaps I need to look at driving through rather than creating a "home base" in Sedona as it looks like Painted Desert and National Forest type places are quite a bit away from Sedona.. Hmmm...
Can you all point me in the right direction? Tips? Opinions? Comments? All are welcomed!..
And as always, thank you in advance!Edited: 11 June 2012, 18:00
