Vacationers planning to book Arizona timeshare rentals may not be sure what adventures they should prepare for in a state filled with desert trails and sandstone cliffs. Whether amidst the vast Sonoran Desert, filled with wildflowers, cacti and other fragrant desert plants, or among the Red Rock Crossing, where the waters of Oak Creek capture massive sandstone cliffs in its reflection, your visit to the Grand Canyon State will be rich in unforgettable memories of the Southwest desert landscape.
Savor Sedona’s artistic culture
Located in North Central Arizona, Sedona possesses a culture rich in art and Native American history. Famous for its artist enclaves, the city boasts several scenic small towns where creative thinkers have found inspiration in the histories of the land. Galleries, studios, festivals, concerts and film screenings entertain residents and visitors throughout the year, creating a tight-knit cultural community within the state.
If you book your next vacations at timeshare resorts in the art-filled city, you may find the excitement you’re looking for at the Sedona Arts Center, which used to be an old apple-packing barn until 1958. Events such as the Sedona Plein Air Festival and Sedona Photofest take over the barn in the months of October and June and keep community members and tourists educated in the artistic successes of neighborhood artists.
Other festivals in the city include the Sedona International Film Festival in February, the summertime’s Red Rocks Music Festival and the Sedona Jazz on the Rocks concert series in the fall.
Nighttime tours in Red Rock State Park
Under the desert stars, Arizona vacationers can journey on a guided moonlight hike in Sedona’s Red Rock State Park. The national park offers two-hour treks twice a month from April-October. Flashlights or headlamps are required for the nightly stroll, because you never know what you may encounter along the park’s 10 developed trails.
The moon’s glow will offer you just enough natural light to witness the manzanita and juniper plants growing along the trails, until you reach the rich banks of Oak Creek. You may want to have your camera ready when you arrive at the rippling stream – the hills of red rock reflecting across the moonlit creek will be a view you won’t want to forget.
