Those who read her travel blog know quite well that Kathy Petrino is an enthusiastic traveler with a strong desire to see as much of the world as possible. Thankfully Kathy truly loves writing about everything she sees and posting it all on her travel blog. She wants to make it possible 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 tiny Arizona town of Sedona.
Sedona has grown in popularity over the years, but somehow, many travelers get the wrong idea and choose not to go because they assume it’s too trendy and expensive. Kathy Petrino wants readers to know it’s possible to see Sedona on the cheap, without shelling out the big bucks. Just walking the streets can be a great experience, as Downtown Sedona is full of nice shops and restaurants. Since it is a relatively small area, it’s an easy walk, too, which can be helpful in summer. A trip to Sedona must include a visit to one of city's famous “vortexes,” a throwback to Sedona’s role in the New Age movement, when four spots - Bell Rock, Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock, and Boynton Canyon - were designated “vortexes” capable of facilitating prayer, meditation, and healing.
