Best Day Trip For The Unadventurous (2001)

Prescott, Jerome and Sedona Tour

Your aging mom and dad (or your lazy friends from college) are in town, and it's time to show them the sights of Arizona. But your guests are feeling about as mobile as a scorpion in a Lucite paperweight, and they claim to have little interest in nature. What to do? Try this painless, super-scenic triple-destination tour. Begin by motoring up to Prescott in the morning for some casual antiquing at the shops in Town Square. Then treat your company to lunch on Whiskey Row before piling them back into the car for the curvy drive across Alternate Route 89 and up toward the mountaintop town of Jerome. You don't have to stop the car to appreciate the vistas from Jerome, as you continue on into Sedona, where your guests can enjoy dinner at one of several red-rock eateries and one of the most magnificent sunsets in the world. Stop off at one of the ever-changing events at Sedona Cultural Park before heading back to the Valley with a carload of happy and well-entertained tourists.
