People who read the travel pieces on her blog know well that Kathy Petrino is an enthusiastic traveler with a strong desire to experience as much of the world as possible. Thankfully for travel readers of all kinds, Kathy enjoys writing about everything she sees and posting it on her blog. She is wont to share everything, which goes along with her fondest desire, to create the possibility for everyone to have the same great experiences she has had. That includes one of Kathy Petrino’s favorite destinations, which happens to be one of the best-kept secrets in the world, the small Arizona town of Sedona.

Over the years, Sedona has grown in popularity, but many travelers don’t go because they assume it’s too trendy, and they know “trendy” usually means “expensive.” Despite that undeserved reputation, Kathy Petrino shows her readers all the ways it’s possible to see Sedona without shelling out huge bucks. There are many great things to see and do in Sedona, and many of them can be done on the cheap and Kathy writes about that because she thinks Sedona is a great place to visit and should be on everyone’s bucket list.

For instance, just walking the streets of Sedona can be a great experience, as the downtown area features plenty of really nicest shops and restaurants. Since it is a relatively small area, that is an advantage, especially in the summer, when temperatures can top 100 degrees. A trip to Sedona is incomplete without a visit to one of city's famous “vortexes,” which refers to the time, some years back, Sedona went through a popular New Age movement and the movement designated four spots - Bell Rock, Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock, and Boynton Canyon - as spiritual “vortexes,” based on a belief they can facilitate prayer, meditation, and healing.
