Sedona is undeniably one of the most beautiful and picturesque places I’ve seen and I’ve lived and worked in over 20 countries!

If you planned on visiting Sedona in 2016, you might think that you’ve missed the best time to do so. In the months of May and June, Sedona is blooming and full of visitors. Prices of lodgings also spike high and it’s often very difficult to book something appropriate.

Well, if you missed your chance and were smart enough to not come here in July and August, you might feel that 2016 wasn’t your Sedona year.

However, to me, the best time to visit Sedona is yet to come.

Autumn is as beautiful as spring in Sedona, so what are you waiting for?

Visiting Sedona in Fall

After the months of spring, fall is the second best choice to visit Sedona. September is especially warm, pleasant and full of surprises. If you still haven’t booked your accommodation, you can do that here.

In September and October, we enjoy warm weather that isn’t get unpleasantly hot and still allows for long hikes, bike rides and exploring in the town of Sedona.

Fall is one of my favorite times here is Sedona. September and October are still pretty warm (hovering in the high 70s and 80s), but if you’re looking for the fall cool you better book a November trip. Even then, it’s still a good idea to book your hotel at least three weeks in advance to ensure availability and the best rate.

September and October are also the months when Sedona hosts two big events:

Red Rocks Music Festival (August-September)

The Red Rocks Music Festival educates, engages and challenges audiences through a unique collaboration of musicians from leading Arizona performing arts organizations and world-acclaimed artists. An integral part of the Festival’s mission is education.

Master classes and workshops enable young musicians to learn skills from master musicians. The festival provides outreach educational music programs that inspire students to appreciate and continue their interest in the arts.

Sedona Plein Air Festival (October)

This October the Sedona Arts Center presents a week-long celebration of Sedona’s extraordinary beauty as seen through the eyes and talent of 30 of the finest painters in the country. “En Plein Air”, a French term that translates to “in the open air”, describes paintings that have been created outdoors rather than in a studio. The spectacular red rock scenery and temperate climate of Sedona create the perfect location for plein air painting.

September to November is ideal time for outdoor activities thanks to mild weather. Fall days are filled with blue sunny skies and temperatures from the mid-60s to low 80s. You should note that these are the most popular times to visit and booking a room early makes a lot of sense if you want to rent at a reasonable price..

If you ask me, there’s really no bad time to visit Sedona, that’s why we chose to stay here for good.

The weather is pretty great year-round and you can always ask us if you run out of things to do.
