Many world-travelers associate places like Bali and Thailand with wellness, and rightfully so, since the concept of self-care is a part of their long history. Not to mention travelers on a budget find it easy to enjoy the offering of these island gems. But, what if we told you that you didn’t have to leave the United States to have a rejuvenating experience for mind, body, and soul? Well, it is possible in Sedona, Arizona.

Its Natural Beauty

Though it’s not located in Seaside, the desert city has a lot to offer. With Red Rock State Park and its beautiful hiking trails, you can immerse yourself in the natural beauty Sedona has to offer. If you’re up for a two-hour drive, you can add the Grand Canyon to your list of things to do while you’re there.

A Variety Of Lodging Options

One of the reasons Bali and Thailand are so favorite amongst travelers aside from their culture is that you can get a lot of bang for your buck. Sedona also has a variety of lodging options ranging from the budget-friendly Airbnb located right on the Sugarloaf hiking trail to the all-inclusive wellness resort, Mii amo, that offers a range of packages that include accommodations, spa treatments, and meals.

The Spiritual Vortex

Yes, the spiritual vortex in Sedona is said to be a real thing. The most popular sites to experience the energy of the vortexes of Sedona are the Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, and Boynton Canyon. It is said that when you visit these sites, you will walk away feeling better than when you came, and you can even find groups that guide visitors through meditation and yoga at the locations.

The Weather

Sedona has 300 sunny days each year with the average temperate being 75F, but in the summer months, the temperatures can reach the mid to high 90s.

Don’t Miss The Wineries

Wine lovers will be able to balance their wellness experience with hiking, meditation, and enjoying a nice glass of wine (or two). There are quite a few wine tours and vineyards to explore with Arizona Winery Tours and Sedona Wine Adventures being among the most popular experiences.
