As a staple of American comfort food, sometimes only a good burger will satiate your cravings. In Sedona, there are plenty to choose from! Check out the offerings at Outlaw Grille, where the award-winning baby back ribs are just part of what make the menu so enticing. All burgers are ½ pound and served with a choice of sweet potato fries, coleslaw, cottage cheese, red potato salad or regular house fries.

You’ll drool over their Gunslinger Burger with bacon, pepper jack cheese and fresh jalapeños. The Morning After Burger comes with a fried egg, bacon, cheddar and peppers. Try the Cowboy Up Burger with two patties, cheddar and swiss, sautéed mushrooms, grilled onions and onion rings.

Hamburger Classics

The Cowboy Club Grille and Spirits is a steakhouse bedecked in cowboy swag and famous for their cactus fries. Those pair perfectly with the Club Burger featuring house-ground beef, fresh tomatoes, aged cheddar, lettuce and pickles. Try the Buffalo Burger with hand-pressed buffalo, onion-tomato jam, lettuce, pickles and bleu cheese.

At The Haunted Hamburger, you get Mexican-American fusion in an allegedly haunted establishment.

Sedona Heritage Museum’s Telegraph Office

by: Editor on 4/14/2017

 

Peek into history at the Sedona Heritage Museum. Originally the Telegraph Office 100 years ago, this building has served the region as a railroad depot and a Western film hub throughout the past century. Nearly 100 movies have been filmed in Sedona, the bulk during the Western film era of the 1940s and 50s. The museum was a highlight in 1947’s Angel and the Badman. Unused for 50 years, the film was gifted to the Sedona Heritage Museum.

Currently, the Telegraph Office is being relocated and restored, turning it into part of the museum’s exhibit grounds. It’s the last remaining piece of the Sedona West movie town set and slated to bring visitors swiftly back into the golden film era.

Projects Underway

It’s been two years of hard work, and now the Telegraph Office is almost complete. Hollywood discovered Sedona in 1923, moving swiftly to film Call of the Canyon in the region. John Wayne chose Sedona when he produced his first film, opting to build a full movie street that was later used for a slew of other television shows and commercials.

When visiting the Telegraph Office, don’t miss out on the exhibitions and galleries offered by the museum nearby. Located in the Jordan Historical Park at 735 Jordan Road, exhibits include Early Settlers, The Orchard Industry, and Ranching & Cowboys. Open daily from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., admission is $5 for adults and free for children under 13.

by: Editor on 4/13/2017

 

Hosted by the City of Sedona, this April 15th event is fun for the whole family—and so much more than just an egg hunt! At the Celebration of Spring from 9am – 12pm, it’s an action packed morning for families and anyone in Sedona who enjoys the outdoors.

Hop Into Spring

The egg hunt kicks off at 10am, and children under the age of 13 are welcome to join in. Parents can help little ones under the age of two. Egg hunts are divided by age, and there are over 10,000 tucked into the field! Please take your own basket.

Hike Sycamore Canyon

by: Editor on 3/29/2017

 

Take advantage of the relatively cool summer temperatures and hike Sycamore Canyon, the second biggest canyon in the state’s Red Rock Country. It’s not as famous as Oak Creek Canyon, and that’s part of its charm. Just as gorgeous, it’s much less crowded and allows for a peaceful and leisurely (or challenging at a fast clip!) hike through over 55,000 acres. You’ll find yourself amidst stunning cliffs, incredible pinnacles and a rare desert riparian environment.

All the way from the forest-covered rim close to Williams to the desert canyons in Verde Valley, Sycamore is a veritable smorgasbord of delights for outdoor lovers. Mountain lions and black bears roam this area, so stay alert, and stick to the trails. Generally, Sycamore is a safe and family-friendly space if you follow park regulations.

A Night to Remember

When dark falls, you might spot the famous ring-tailed cat, which looks a bit like a raccoon. They’re the official state animal, as selected by a survey of Arizona school children. More common are hermit thrushes and wrens, and Taylor Cabin is a favorite area that hearkens back to the Wild West era. At Parsons Spring Trail, you’ll find a rare and productive habitat.

Head to the Sycamore Rim Trail in Kaibab National Forest to discover incredibly tall trees and private natural pools. It was the first area to be dubbed a Wilderness Area in the 1970s. With a lot of trails and attractions from horseback riding to photography, consider it your secret Sedona getaway.

St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations

by: Editor on 3/14/2017

 

The annual, city-wide St. Patrick’s Day Parade kicks off this annual party, and since St. Paddy’s Day is on a Friday this year, you can bet it’ll be a party for the ages. The parade starts at 10:30 a.m. with coffee and snacks before the floats head down the streets. A number of businesses and restaurants help make this tradition a success, and the grandstands along Jordan Road are packed with revelers.

The parade starts at Jordan Historical Park and winds down Jordan Road all the way to Mesquite Avenue. The after party goes until 3 p.m. with free events. Get your green beer, Irish grub, and games for the kids at this family-friendly party where wearing green is strongly encouraged.

Get Lucky in the Southwest

The Sedona Main Street Program also hosts a number of green-centric events, tapping into local businesses, restaurants and pubs to make downtown Sedona an Irishman’s (and woman’s) paradise. Hop from shop to shop to get special deals, once-a-year treats and discounts throughout the entire weekend.

Mooney’s Irish Pub in downtown is always outdoing themselves to give partiers the best, most authentic St. Patrick’s Day with live music, entertainment and special menu items. From lucky corned beef and cabbage to the perfect Guinness, it’s where you’ll want to end your night.

Hawaiian Grub in Sedona

by: Editor on 3/9/2017

 

Have you had your fill of Southwestern, Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine? It’s time to “taste out” some incredible tropical dishes! Aloha Hawaiian BBQ Restaurant serves authentic as well as innovative dishes that will feel like you were whisked to the tropics. It’s a local secret gem with no online presence, but with a strong cult following, and you’re sure to be the next to get addicted.

Locals swear by the coconut shrimp and chicken katsu that achieves the perfect blend of crunchiness and tenderness. However, others come solely for the Boba Thai tea complete with eccentric flavors and unique, colorful fruity toppings. Their sticky rice goes above and beyond, proving to be the ultimate side dish.

An 808 Special

The Golden Goose American Grill might not sound like it has a surplus of tropical treasures, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It’s the go-to spot when you can’t decide between classic Americana comfort food and something a little more exotic.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, try the yucca frites with chipotle dipping sauce, firecracker shrimp skewer wrapped in a jalapeño bacon slice and served with sour cream, or the pecan-crusted trout. The dessert coffees never disappoint, like the Thin Mint or Burnt Almond that’s half decadent, half coffee-lovers dream come true.
