Areas to stay where we can walk to restaurants for dinner?

Hi there Sedona forum,

We are finally getting back to the beautiful US southwest and finally for the first time to Sedona - can't wait.

To try to pick where to stay we have looked at the excellent advice here already about where to stay, but still would like some help with the layout / neighbourhoods.

Our main criteria for where to stay is an area where we could walk to restaurants for dinner - we like a bit of wine with dinner so no driving. Can you do this if staying outside of Downtown? And are all areas safe for walking at night?

Any advice is appreciated.

1. Re: Areas to stay where we can walk to restaurants for dinner?

There are restaurants all over Sedona. Just about anywhere you stay will be within walking distance to something. The highest concentration of accommodations and eateries will be in Uptown or the Gallery district. West Sedona and Village of Oakcreek will also have some options for walking although distances might be greater and a lower density of businesses that cater to tourists will also be evident. Not an absence, just a lower concentration.

Safety for walking at night is a non issue with the exception of the extreme darkness that can make pedestrians invisible to auto traffic. Be very careful about crossing roads in the darkness. In West Sedona especially, resist the temptation to jay walk. Take the time to go all the way to the designated crossing areas at intersections.

Redrox, thanks so much for your reply - very helpful.

This may seem like a silly question, but is there good cab service in Sedona? That would be our other option to getting home after dinner.

Taxis in Sedona are very limited. Depending owhere you stay, there might be a hotel shuttle available.

Where do you think you want to stay? More importantly, where do you think you want to eat? How long will you be in Sedona? Tell us more about you and your priorities and what your research has lead you to so ar.

The resorts offer different types of dining, and will shuttle/golf cart you back to your suite, villa, or cabin after dinner.
