THE SOUTHWEST

ARIZONA
Have a Spiritual
Awakening in Sedona

S

edona is known to be a spiritual place, and with its red-rock beauty and mild
weather year-round, it's no wonder groups flock there to get away from it all.
Visitors can take in nature at multiple locations, such as the Jordan Historical Park.
This five-acre park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and offers
a museum and a short hike. The museum focuses on Sedona's settlers in the 1870s
through its heyday as a Western film location in the 1950s.
Consider starting the spiritual journey at the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park. This
location spreads across 14 acres at the base of Thunder Mountain, an area considered
holy by the native people. Consider a Secret Mountain Tour to Sedona's energy vortexes
to enhance spirituality and return rejuvenated. Visitors can also take a trip to the Chapel
of the Holy Cross, which was built in 1956. Known as a man-made wonder of Arizona,
the church looks like it was carved right into the mountain and is a wonder for all to see.
Visitors can also take yoga classes, visit a medium or hypnotherapist, and find peace and
tranquility during their trips to Sedona.
After a full day of spiritual searching, unwind in spacious accommodations that combine the comforts of home with the convenience of a limited-service hotel at the Holiday
Inn Express Sedona-Oak Creek. Adorned with warm and modern décor, each room features complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, a microwave/fridge, and a Keurig coffeemaker.
Sink into a Simmons Beautyrest bed, layered with soft pillows and premium linens, and
relax while watching a new flat-screen TV. And there is no need to leave the four-legged
friends at home-Holiday Inn Express Sedona-Oak Creek offers selected pet-friendly
rooms. Enjoy beautiful views, a heated pool and spa, a spacious fitness center, and a complimentary breakfast buffet.

SUNNY YUMA IS A
PERFECT SLICE OF ARIZONA
Bask in the sunny glow of Yuma, taking in the sights and sounds of the third-largest city in
Arizona. Yuma holds the Guinness World Record for sunniest city on Earth, and with low
humidity, this tranquil spot is perfect for groups to visit.
Check out the sand dunes at the Imperial Sand Dunes National Recreation Area, a
location that film directors have favored since the early 1900s; the dunes have appeared in
Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Jarhead, and The Scorpion King. Then, visit Antelope Hill or
Painted Rocks to see an icon of the Southwest: ancient petroglyphs-pictures scratched,
carved, or pecked into rocks. Before the trip is over, groups must see the Colorado River's
shoreline. Linking the riverfront together is a paved, lighted multipurpose pathway that's
perfect for walking or biking.
There is so much to see and do in Yuma, including national parks, wildlife refuges, museums, and history. Contact Yuma's visitor's bureau for ideas, itineraries,
and accommodations.
