How to Drive In A Roundabout

Tue, Jan 23rd 2018 4:55 pm by BonnieSedan PamRavenwood Sedona Arizona

Roundabouts are becoming more and more popular as road improvements are made, due to the fact they are safer than stoplights. Drivers run stoplights while they must slow down in roundabouts.

 Sedona round-abouts

The problem with roundabouts is that many people have never used them and aren’t exactly sure how they work. The idea of merging into traffic, picking a lane and exiting becomes intimidating. When drivers are intimidated they often panic and move in the wrong direction or make bad decisions.

In Sedona, we have a number of roundabouts, especially if you enter town from I-17 from Hwy 269. The primary roundabout is at what the locals call the ‘Y’, whereupon you can go right and enter into uptown...

Why Is Sedona Considered Spiritual?

Mon, Nov 27th 2017 12:28 pm by BonnieSedan PamRavenwood Sedona Arizona

Sedona is a holistic health mecca, sometimes referred to as a New Age capital. Sedona is a place for rejuvenation, amazing trails, and its beauty just speaks spiritual in all languages. This might be why it is referred to as simply… “spiritual.”

As the author who wrote about Sedona for the Guardian Magazine stated, “Locals call Sedona, Arizona a cathedral without walls.”

Historic churches, holy sites, ancient pilgrimages won’t be found in Sedona. For this reason, the mystery of it being ‘spiritual’ location escapes many. When you arrive in Sedona, after at least an hour’s drive (more like 2) from the airport in Phoenix, you might think you’ve been delivered to the land of large red ro...

Enjoying Christmas in Sedona in 2017

Fri, Nov 10th 2017 2:56 pm by BonnieSedan PamRavenwood What is happening in Sedona

Winter is coming upon us and while this means that many people in other states are dreading winter and hunkering down to stay out of the cold, everything comes to life when it becomes winter in Arizona.

Winter in Arizona means the weather is nearly perfect, depending on what part of Arizona you want to hang out in, and that the snakes are hibernating so it’s perfect for outdoor activities. Winter in Sedona could mean an occasional snow fall, which we all celebrate for the small amount of time the snow actually sticks. It also means wonderful festivities in Tlaquepaque like visiting Santa and the tree lighting. When the bell tower chimes at 5 p.m., more than 6,000 luminarias will be lit a...

Thu, Sep 28th 2017 1:48 pm by BonnieSedan PamRavenwood Sedona Arizona
