Suppose you are taking a 7 day trip and plan to see the Grand Canyon... suggested
below are some points of interest that you can see on the way or if you choose on
the way back. Be sure to inquire as to what else you might be able to do,
the following is only sample.
Arcosanti (Architecture + Ecology) and the beautiful Soleri Windbells for sale located
65 miles North of Phoenix just off 1-17 (exit 262) at Cordes Junction. They have
overnight accommodations but must be made ahead.
As you continue North on 1-17 a favorite restaurant is Rock Springs... breakfast,
lunch and barbecue dinner and their famous home made pies. Lemon is piled high with
meringue. Also located in Rock Springs is a small Amish Restaurant that we're told
has wonderful food.
As you head north again you will come to the Prescott turnoff. Prescott is a very
beautiful town to visit and not far out of your way. A beautiful Park is in the center
of town with lots of activity going on regularly; lots of shops, old buildings even
Whiskey Row. Sharlott Hall Museum captures Prescott's beauty, culture & history.
Plenty of overnight accommodations with several bed & breakfasts. Prescott has

Creek Canyon famous for Slide Rock, an all natural stream with ice cold
water that the kids will love. You get in at the top and it carries you
down stream... lots of fun but wear old jeans because it's not real
gentle on your attire.
From here you will enter into Sedona, famous for its breathtaking
beauty of the wonderful red rocks... don't miss the Church in the rocks.
Sedona is famous for its beauty and all the great shops! You can spend
the day just browsing. Lots of overnight accommodations.
