Quick trip with kids

Hello all,

I am traveling to Scottsdale to visit a friend for 2 days with my newborn (3 mo). We've decided to take a day to go to Sedona. We will have her 2 year old and 1 year old and my baby. What can we do get the best view/experience with the kids? Either a light short trail or just a nice picnic spot, nice drive, nice park, etc. Something to go away with a 'wow' even without being able to jeep or hike. Obviously can't stay in the car all day with these ages so need something other than nice drives (although feel free to share that too!).

Any other relevant advice welcome!

Thanks, Eeta

Chuck wagon trail is flat and offers good views. I also recommend Broken Arrow Trail which leads to Chicken Point.

Get some sandwiches and go to Red Rock Crossing as mentioned by RedRox. Plenty of room for the two year old to run around and the view of the creek and of Cathedral Rock are awesome.

I would also try to visit the Chapel of the Holy Cross, but hold on to the hand of the little one up there. Terrific views and inspiring building.

The Chapel of the Holy Cross definitely has the wow factor, and and the area outside would be a great place for pictures. The parking lot is pretty busy.. Your friend probably has a double stroller because that would be easier in the parking lot and going up the hill to the Chapel itself.

You may enjoy walking through Tlaquepaque which is just a little further on Hwy.179.
