Sedona is a desert town in Arizona surrounded by red-rock buttes, steep canyon walls and pine forests. USA Weekend named Sedona the Most Beautiful Place in America. Here’s how to spend a day here on a budget.


Café Jose Restaurant is a great stop for breakfast. It serves Mexican and American comfort food in a mural-decorated room. They have all the breakfast essentials here. All of the food options cost less than $12.


For a glimpse of what life was like between 1150 and 1350 A.D., take a drive to the Palatki Heritage Site. There are three hiking trails here, one takes you to cliff dwellings, one takes you to a view of them and the other takes you to see pictographs. They each measure about a quarter of a mile.


For lunch, eat at Outlaw Grille. They have crisp salads, delicious burgers and other sandwiches. All options here are just less than $13 with the exception of one meal.


After lunch, walk around in the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village. There are many galleries, shops and restaurants, and it also full of activities, making it a great destination for both residents and visitors.


When you are finished at Tlaquepaque, take a quick drive down the road to The Hudson for dinner. There are inside and outside seating options, both with great views. The food here is typical American bar food, with some vegan options. Prices here average around $23.
