After what feels like a million years, I'm going on my first road trip and I am EXCITED! I'm going to a conference in Tucson in April, and thought I'd drive. Then, I thought "well, if I'm going to drive, I could spend a few days in Flagstaff/Sedona before heading down for the conference!" I've got places to stay, but would love advice on what's worth seeing/doing (and eating!) and what's worth skipping. I'm looking forward to taking pictures of Route 66 and the spiritual landscape in Arizona...but what else should I be on the lookout for? (I love things that are funky, I love things that feed my spirit, and I guess I have a touch of the new-age in my yoga and meditation practice.)
My current plan is:
Day 1: Drive from SD to Flagstaff, taking a bit of time to see the sights along the way.
Day 2 & 3: Explore what's to explore using Flagstaff as a base camp.
Day 4: Drive from Flagstaff to Tucson
Days 5-8: The conference during the day and exploring after!
Day 9: Tucson to San Diego
Thanks for your feedback! I look forward to what you have to say!
